Quality Chop House on Farringdon Road is located in premises that date back to 1869, and its extremely narrow booth seating seemed to hark back to a time when Britons were (much) smaller in size.
Anyway, thanks to fellow Hungry Onioner, @ds, for introducing me to this wonderful lunch spot. Good quality ingredients, with some really deft touches by its talented kitchen crew.
Our lunch consisted of:
Salt & pepper sprats, malt vinegar mayonnaise
Tomato, raspberries, goat’s milk curd, samphire
Middle White pork terrine, gherkin, Kernel mustard
Parmesan polenta, courgette, shallots, egg yolk
Galloway mince on dripping toast
Cornish pollack, smoked mackerel stock, sauce vierge
- Lincolnshire Poacher, crackers, pickled Tropea onion
- Treacle tart with creme fraiche
- Madagascan chocolate ice-cream, vanilla custard, Capezzana olive oil
Loved the Old World ambience of the whole place, its antique plates and cutlery, and the polite & very efficient service.
