Here is where you will find chefs using the finest seasonal produce from British farmers and producers...
When it comes to classic British dishes with a modern twist, Roast know how to do it right. Nestled in the heart of Britain’s culinary culture, this landmark restaurant takes advantage of the bustling atmosphere at London’s iconic Borough Market to bring you one of the most exciting venues in the city.
Opened in 2005 by restaurateur Iqbal Wahhab OBE, founder of the legendary Cinnamon Club, Roast's menu is as delectable as it is varied. Set over two levels, with a view of their busy kitchen, The Shard, St Paul’s and the market below, here is where you will find chefs using the finest seasonal produce from British farmers and producers, many of which come straight from Borough Market’s very own stalls.
We started off with half a dozen freshly shucked oysters, which were so fresh, our minds were transported to the seaside. The seared scallops that followed were cooked to perfection and almost melted in our mouths. But it was the Haggis and Lorne sausage scotch eggs that had us licking our lips to take in every last crumb.
Our appetite had only just awoken, so when the whole grilled sea bass with fennel, capers and basil came out, it was greeted happily. The flesh fell away from the bones with ease and the simple accompaniments allowed the natural sweetness of the fish to take centre stage.
The next dish to arrive was a delicious plate of pork belly with mashed potato and bramley apple sauce - a British favourite, cooked to perfection. Finally, a mouthwatering dessert of chocolate peanut butter mousse cake with honeycomb ice cream tied up the evening for two very satisfied customers.
