This last week saw us heading to Proud Kitchen for the Burlesque in Your Kitchen experience. So it's been a while since I ventured into Camden possibly circa 1995 or so when I was still at school, to this part in particular. Definitely remembered why it had that 'cool' appeal but not sure I'd go back in hurry with all the Friday night drinkers who were 'rubbish bombing' along the street when they saw a big pile of full black bin bags...!!
So the kitchen is more like a kitchen than a restaurant with big trestle style tables that are shared with other dining parties. The best tables to get are the ones opposite the stage to fully benefit from the performances. Unfortunately we were on one of the side tables sideways on and the group on the end at that.
I definitely did not rate the food, being just so average and something I could so easily make at home...mussels in a cider, bacon and cream sauce. Average. Then the salmon tasted as thought it was fresh out of the salmon farm with a rubbery non crisping up skin. The vegatables were also very greasy. I'm sure some of the other options were better...not sure whih ones though!
So the next ordeal was going for a cigarette. Not so easy as you might think - I had to go through to the next door bar which aprarently is 'full of tons of students'. Not an easy trek throgh a whole bar of live music and druken people. Bit of an issue with super-high heels. The saving geace is that the music becomes really fun after all the perfomances so you and stay on and dance.
So on to the performances, generally quite amusing but not as good as some acts I have seen in the past. The best one by far was the last which was a proper burlesque performance unlike what I'd term many of the others which are more an interpretation. So this one was a beautiful ballerina who piroutted around on her sparkely points with fitting feathers, not to be deterred. She was also featuring in a japanese geisha-esque scenario but the rest wreren't really so convincing...
