Grab a gaggle of girlfriends for a giggly girlie lunch
For a quick girlie lunch, you should check out MacNab Provedore on Racecourse Road at Ascot. Looking at the outside doesn't give you much of a clue as to the pretty decor on the inside which is in the French provincial style. It's quite chic and features a full service delicatessen where you can pick up domestic and international cheeses, cold cuts and other deli foods. It's also a cafe serving excellent coffee, complete with latte art.
We had a lovely lunch here after hearing good things from friends. The salad was extraordinarily fresh and vibrant, studded with quality sundried tomatoes, olives and melon balls and served with a nice portion of freshly shaved smoked ham.
We also enjoyed a fresh chicken pie with crispy pastry. The filling was moist and flavoursome. It was served with another lovely salad, faultless in its freshness and flavour. Rather than an ordinary old salad dressing, we were provided with a little bowl of mandarin-infused oil to add as desired.
