I began crushin' on The Wayland's menu from the get go but there was one drink in particular that was love at first sip. The Indian Summer. Pine-smoked gin, lime, simple syrup, pear cider and sage. Garnished with what I can only assume is curried salt. Infused with indian spices, including fresh cilantro (corriander to us Brits) resting in the glass, the heat is undercut by the refreshing flavours that stand in unison. It is simply divine.
An honourable mention should also go out to the I Hear Banjo's - Encore. This whiskey drink appears with a glass of applewood smoke rested on top. After it's sat for a while place the top glass to your nose and mouth to inhale, and then follow by sipping the whiskey from the other glass. It's like drinking a winters day in a log cabin.
To nibble alongside, you should order the Pernil Romero baguette, which is utterly mouthwatering and will have you begging for more. If pulled pork is your thang then you should check out my pizza recreation of this beauty too.
