Outside ALOWYF

 

A really cool restaurant located off of Kingsland Rd in the district of Dalston. Initially walking up to the establishment was a bit confused as one would expect proper signage for a restaurant/eatery. It was thanks to  my cousin’s explanation that ‘A Little of What You Fancy’ is one of London’s best pop-up restaurants, things made more sense. Exciting, as I’ve always wanted to experience a pop-up restaurant!

The dinning there was relaxing and easy going. Never felt rushed or had the feeling the server was trying to up-sell. Gave us the information we needed as we asked for it. The food was just what I wanted. Traditional and authentic British food that was delicious!

That Roasted Pork Belly, Ice Cream, and the meringue were awesome. The menu typically changes but, should one be fortunate to find those items on the evening of your visit, make sure to order those dishes. You wont be sorry, nor will you have trouble sleeping; after dinner, I slept like a rock. Enjoy! :)

Oh my goodness.. The combination of service, attention to detail, quality of food, and presentation were all top notch and worth every penny! I even got to enjoy Pappy Van Winkle!! I’ve been looking everywhere for that guy!! :)

Upon arriving and looking at the menu, I knew immediately what I was going to have. The Chef’s Tasting Journey. When a chef has such respect and understanding of the ingredients, there should be no doubt that the meal will be amazing. No substitutions, no allergies. I’m all in! And wow, when each dish is gorgeous, it makes for shooting food so easy! As you know, I’m all about showcasing the food as you would see it at the restaurant and wow.. you’re definitely in for a treat. Favorite dish was definitely the farm egg custard as the flavor was just superb! A special mention goes out to the intermezzo.; such a pleasant way to cleanse the palate. Honestly, all the dishes were fabulous.

A must try.

Fun fact: I was the first to enter the restaurant and one of the last to leave. Total dining time = 5 hours; a true journey that I would gladly do again!
