Brat, those smoked potatoes , restaurant review, London

If you are someone who enjoys suspense, let me tell you right now,this is not the review for you. It would be impossible for me not to tell you immediately that I adore Brat. I love the space, I love the service, the wine and, of course, the food, and those potatoes, but more of those later.

Just a week or so ago, Brat was the proud recipient of a coveted Michelin star, so it’s probably near impossible to get a table,  never mind the famed Turbot that the restaurant is named for.

Brat is the first solo venture from Tomas Parry previously of the much lauded Kitty Fisher’s and is somewhat hidden above Smoking Goat. Follow the stairs and you shall be rewarded. When we visited, pre star,  we waited to be seated while listening to a young woman  in front of us talk very loudly about a recent father and very prominent London chef who had come on to her; note to all chefs –  if you are going to play away, at least pick someone you can rely on to be discrete.

From the back of the sunlit, wood panelled dining room, we could see the action. We arrived at 2.30 but, alas, this was already too late to sample the famed Brat  which was already sold out. Troopers that we are,  we soldiered on, unlike the couple who came in near the end of our meal and walked back out when told this news. Fools, I tell you, fools.

We started with the smoked Cod’s roe, served on buttered toast soldiers, the butter slick on the plate. The roe was light, smokey sweet. It crowned the butter-drenched, chewy, caramelised sourdough triumphantly.

Grilled velvet crab was good, but I’m lazy and this tiny little thing didn’t balance out in effort versus reward for me. 

Egg salad was rich and unctuous and reminded me of the egg in a cup my grandad would make us. The bottarga, smoked fish roe, added sharp burst of salt. Like everything we ate, it was all disarmingly simply but absolutely brilliantly executed.

Clams and trotter sauce were rich and gelatinous, the onions adding sweetness. They were moreish but they should come with bread because you can’t leave that salty, sweet liquid. It begs to be mopped up and so we ordered bread  and did just that. 

In place of the turbot, we  plumped for a whole Grouse. It seemed appropriate, given the season had just started. It was a beauty. Served with an extremely intense, rich parfait of offal, the sharp, sweet blackberries did well to cut through it. The grouse was perfectly cooked, bathed in a rich, soothing jus.

Our sides were roasted red peppers, sweet and tender. And the smoked potatoes, these are quite possibly the best potatoes I’ve ever eaten. Look at them, bathed in a pool of sunlight. They were magnificent. 

We shared burnt cheese cake and peaches for dessert. The cheesecake was light and airy, the sweetness of the peaches offset by the sour creme fraiche.

Service was faultless, warm, friendly, yet polished.

So I will finish as I started, Brat is utter perfection.

    Mario Royale was developed by InfernoPlus as a unique take on the battle royale formula. 76 players start in the classic Mario World 1-1 level and must be the last Mario to make it to the end of the level. While players don’t directly interact with others during the race, they can interact with obstacles and use them to eliminate the other players. The rules are simple. There can be only one winner. It has the features you might expect from a Battle Royale game. You start with nothing, you have to quickly find whatever you need to kill everyone else (or keep your friends alive). You find various weapons, ammo, equipment and all while you have to keep an eye out for other players trying to survive. On top of that, there’s also the zone system, so you have to make it inside an ever-shrinking zone to stay in the game. https://proguntalk.com/community/profile/cathryndoran172/ Thanks, for the moment am using 2.5ghz laptop with 8gb ram. Am sure the games will run on the laptop. Star Wars, Starcraft, Far Cry 2 and Crysis sounds interesting. Never played Medal of Honor series but I’ll give it a try. Prey sounds like a horror game. As a kid horrors games was scary back then. Lets see if it has the same affect once i play it. The more story driven games the better. As for the company’s 60th anniversary this year, Sega sent out a tweet earlier today showing off some fun things coming to Steam soon, including a look at four free mini games inspired by Sega’s development past. Golden Axed: A Cancelled Prototype, Streets of Kamurocho, Armor of Heroes, and Endless Zone are all short, blast from the past experiences that have unique ties to the long-lived game company.
