So we finally got over to Heddon Street kitchen following their successful launch on the 8th November and it did not disappoint…
Located in the Regent Street Food Quarter Heddon Street is the perfect destination for a “post-shop” refuel, a working lunch or an evening treat. The only thing is, once you are in Heddon Street you will not want to leave. Heddon Street Kitchen is situated at the end of the Food Quarter and features an all glass frontage made up by long floor to celling windows and doors, which will be perfect for Summer days with the doors open leading onto the outdoor seating area. Although the front of HSK features so many glass windows, inside it is still perfectly lit, it’s decor is reminiscent of a classy New York lunch spot with a modern industrial twist.
We were seated in a large booth near the window with views of the bustling food quarter and shoppers on their rounds. Yesterday London had an underlying Christmassy vibe which may have had something to do with the client shopping we carried out earlier in the day but it was so nice to sit in the window watching the world go by.
We ordered wine (a lovely Sauvignon Blanc) which is a must for lunch time relaxation and contemplation and ordered our food…
This is the “Spicy Tuna Tartare with chilli garlic, sesame oil and wonton crisps” which was a particular favourite. The tuna was chunky and delicious! It’s great to have a tuna tartare that isn’t overpowered by additional flavours, it was really nice just to taste the tuna and the slight spicy hint was an added bonus.
This was the other starter that we ordered the “California Maki roll, snow crab mix, avocado and tobiko” it was amazing and it would definitely be a great one for someone who is new to sushi as it’s not overly fishy and it works really well as a cold starter.
The other main course we decided on was the “Slow-roasted Dingley Dell pork belly with spiced apple sauce”. The Pork was fantastic with a great mixed texture throughout from the crispy crackling to the soft pork belly.
In short the food was amazing and we DEFINITELY did not have room for desert, although they all sounded incredible! So I ordered an Earl Grey, mainly because I saw how cute their teacups were on the way in…
See?! How cute are these?
And, as if the afternoon couldn’t be any more lovely we caught a glimpse of the main man himself walking out of the back door.
