Hawksmoor Knightsbridge

Express steak joy

Hawksmoor Knightsbridge
Hawksmoor shouldn't be a stranger to any Londoners, one of the best steak chains in the capital, it is known for its quality steaks and cocktails that makes it externally popular. It is not un-commend that you have to book well in advance to get a table for Thursday and Friday nights, on the other hand lunch time services are less busy, I went for the express menu which is there fairly well priced set lunch menu, 3 courses for £27 which is massive scale down comparing to its normal menu, for example, you are looking at paying £36 for a 400g rib eye.

I was in love with the Tamworth belly ribs starter, the meat was very tender and the spices combined really well with the pork fat with the sourness of the vinegar slaw offset the richness of the meat. I was less impressed with the main of rib eye steak, the meat was served medium, but I requested medium rare, the meat was still very moist on the inside with great depth of flavours but I found the surface of the meat was over grilled, the charcoal element was far too strong and which make the steak tasted rather bitter on the outside. The peanut butter shortbread was a naughty but sensational dessert, the nutty sweetness with both smooth and crunchy texture was a joy to eat.

Overall, it was a great lunch, a tiny hiccup with the steak, but everything else were fabulous, the side dishes were also excellent, in fact the triple cooked trips are some of the best I have tasted in London. You are looking at paying a similar price for less than average steak chains elsewhere in London such as Angus Steakhouse so Hawksmoor's express lunch deal was indeed great value for money, service as expected was also very friendly and well mannered, I got nothing but love for Hawksmoor.
