Foxlow Balham: Family Sunday Roast!
There's a family tradition now where we all share a meal on most sundays. Since it was @xuexianny last meal with us she wanted a roast!
For those who don't know @foxlowrestaurants is owned by the team behind @hawksmoorrestaurants, with @richardhturner heavily involved. I've been meaning to go since they opened their first site but never managed to make it!
Good standard for a roast, it wasn't be the best I've ever had but a cut above most etc... Good starters really shine too. Quality of the meat really stands out cooked well.
Generous portion of beef, good flavour and the right level of doneness. That satisfying feeling from biting into a properly beefy tasting slab of meat. The gravy however while tasty was a bit thin for me and didn't pack that umami you get at blacklock or temper. Vegetables were good but lacking that sweetness. Slightly underseasoned but salt pepper remedied that and brought out all the good flavours.
The Yorkshire was good not stunning but still v.good not doughy not dried out.
Roast potatoes were good with that right level of crunch and taste but missing that crispy richness built up from a good amount of fat used you get in some or the best ones.
The lamb and startees were excellent but I'll post that separately as it deserves its own replay.
