Is always good to discover unique places to have a quite bite in the city. One of the usual suspects near Blackfriars is Fuzzy’s Grub. You have breakfast all day but what is the masterpiece of the place is the lunch which can be a full roast, a salad version, or a sandwich version of the same roast dinner. You pick your meat, which can be chicken breast, turkey breast, leg of lamb, loin of pork, or topside of beef, and then add the trimmings, stuffing, roast or mashed potatoes, peas, carrots, even Yorkshire pudding, and add gravy, horseradish, mustard, apple & tomato chutney, cranberry sauce, and many other to moist the combination.
The sandwich is an atomic bomb, an explosion of flavours on a wholemeal bun. I got the turkey version with all the trimmings. Good flavour, huge portion and quite cheap. A place you will feel guilty after having the huge sandwich but is worthy at least one a month.
The Full Roast Meal in a Bun
Apparently the place was once a chain, but most of the restaurants went into administration, so apparently the only one surviving was the first one in Fleet Street.
Roast meats reminds me the Seinfeld episode “The Dealership”.
Puddy: Sorry I’m late.
Elaine: My new salesman boyfriend took me out to celebrate his promotion.
Jerry: Ah. Where did you go?
Elaine: Uh, to a restaurant.
Elaine: I had the roast beef.
