Sunday Roast at Hawksmoor

It was the last day of Maraca’s et all visit, and I wanted to get them to a nice Sunday roast, so after a bit of hesitation, trying to position ourselves in a place that might worked for a different kind of sightseeing and for a great roast I took them to Hawksmoor in Spitalfields. 

The bar
Basically a meat paradise, the menu with a central focus on steaks, T Bones, Ribeyes, Porterhouse, Fillets, Sirloins, my kind of place, and actually Maraca and her committee as well, let’s be honest four South Americans, 2 Brazilians and 2 Venezuelans, we grow up meeting meat since we were little. 

Meaty sins?
Got to the place, looked the menu, all of them went for the Sunday Roast, I couldn’t resist the Ribeye, grilled bone marrow, and the half lobster with Hazelnut butter. As side to share some triple cooked chips, and creamed spinach. 

If the king was having and banquet that was it, the Roast traditional roast beef, roasted on a spit over open fire, giving a charcoal smokey flavour, duck fat potatoes, Yorkshire pudding, carrots, greens, and lashings of bone marrow and onion gravy. 

The food was delicious, one of the best steaks I have eaten in London, my ribeye was perfectly cooked, juicy, great flavour, the bone marrow, what can I say, I just loved it, and the lobster, was fresh, with subtle touches of the hazelnut butter, just perfect. I tried the roast beef and was pretty nice, all of them were delighted, and even Maraca commented that for her the best roast beef she has had was her mothers until that day now it’s Hawksmoor. 

Perfect ending: aperitif Venezuelan Rum
Roast reminds me the Seinfeld episode “The Strongbox” 

Jerry: Check these out. These are Jerry Lewis' old cufflinks that he actually wore in the movie Cinderfella, I got them at an auction
George: I got some cufflinks I could've loaned you
Jerry: No, Jerry Lewis is going to be at this Friar's Club roast I'm going to next week, now I have an in to strike up a conversation with him
George: You already have an in. You have the same first name! Jerry!
Jerry: Oh, that'll intrigue him
George: Well, it worked when I met George Peppard last week
Jerry: George Peppard has been dead for years
George: Well, whoever he was, he knew a lot about The A-Team!
