I’ve [link2post id=”809″]raved[/link2post] about [link2post id=”809″]Hawksmoor so many times that you, my dear reader, may think that you’ve heard it all before. But Hawksmoor have not let me down in terms of providing content; they have two new side dishes which I feel enhance the meat-tastic experience of a trip to Hawksmoor no end.
First up are the double fried eggs. I’m told this is a somewhat Argentine thing to garnish your steaks with, I had no idea. I loved my couple of fried eggs and dipping a bit of excellent steak in their yolks. Delicious!
The second new side order was stunningly wonderful: roast bone marrow. The bones are cut lengthways so it is easy to scoop out their gelatinous, rich, flavoursome goodness. Moreover, at three pounds per serving they are much cheaper than Restaurant Saint John’s offerings (the only other place I know of in London that regularly serves this dish), and by arse the Hawkmoor version is distinctly better too.
An epic steak of the very highest quality is only improved by goodies like these; I also felt improved when eating them. This is food that expresses itself as being hilariously visceral and gratuitously biological fun.
