MEATmarket – The Mezzanine Jubilee Market Hall Tavistock St, London WC2E 8BE

Meat Market

We went on a Saturday night at around 9:30pm and the place was empty. Maybe burgers are over or maybe it’s the mediocre press MEATmarket has been getting. Having said that it was a cold night and MEATmarket is in … Continue reading

Osteria Basilico – 29 Kensington Park Road, London W11 2EU

Osteria Basilico

From blog.mawi.co.uk

The waitor looked at me like I was talking Chinese when I asked for a Campari spritz. They eventually bought me Campari soda. They have procesco on the menu.

Scamorza affumicata con Funghi misti e Prosciutto di Parma
Char-grilled smoked Mozzarella served with Wild Mushrooms on a Bed of Parma Ham.
The entree was everything I love about Italian food, simple great ingredients. A great salty cured ham, mushrooms in a rich olive oil, chewy mozzarella.

Mezze Maniche con Melanzane, Pomodoro e Mozzarella
Pasta Tubes with Aubergines, Mozzarella Cheese, Basil, and Tomato Sauce.
The pasta was incredibly bland, the sauce was watery and lacked seasoning, it was too simple and without depth. The tomatoes lacked sweetness, they weree fresh when I think canned would have been a way better option.

Service was below par, surly and with no consistent waiter, for a tiny place it felt like 9 people served us.

Sin Cojones!

Pitt Cue Co – Under Hungerford Bridge, London SE1 8XX

Pitt Cue Co

From fifteenpickles.com

Now at 1 Newburgh Street, Soho, W1F 7RB

The pulled pork is juicy and packed with flavour, the sauce is sweet and smoky without being sickly or there being too much of it.

Great coleslaw, which seemed to include a bit fennel or maybe that was in the pickles. I enjoyed both.

Location ain’t the best, maybe it was because it was a cold wet (typical) British summers day, but being under a damp windy bridge made me feel like a homeless person, without the rosy alcohol blanket.

Un Cojón!
