Smoke House and Salmon Risotto

To celebrate my girlfriend finishing an exam we went to Smoke House in Angel. It was so so delicious!

For Starter I had Chopped brisket roll & gochujang.

For my main I had Shortrib bourguignon. Amazing. Amazing. Amazing. If I had a garden and the same equipment, I’d make it everyday.

From smoke to salmon. Below is a Salmon risotto. The idea came from Zizzis. This is our attempt at it (the photo does look awful – need a better one)
