  • Made in Brasil, Camden - Review

    On a warm Friday evening, we made our way to Camden for our much-anticipated dinner at Made in Brasil. Situated just off the main street, we arrived just as all the market stalls were finishing for the day. The venue itself vibrantly sticks out on an otherwise drab street, inviting passers-by with its lively exterior and Brazilian beats. Since we were early, we decided to enjoy a cocktail while soaking up the last bit of sun in their outdoor area whilst listening to the music. Upon entering the restaurant, we were greeted by very friendly staff who escorted us to our table next to the bar. From there, we had a perfect view of the bartender showcasing their skills in crafting the sumptuous cocktails the establishment is renowned for. The interior design of the restaurant is reminiscent of the bright colours of Brazil, with a focus on yellows, blues, and reds. Very colourful abstract paintings adorn the walls, adding to the vibrant and lively atmosphere. The menu offers a variety of traditional Brazilian dishes. For starters I chose the Aquarela do Basil Salada, a tomato, basil, and burrata salad which was okay but lacked the expected creaminess of burrata, I added basil oil to bring the flavours together. My guest chose the Camarao Alho e Pimenta,  pan-fried garlic and chilli prawns which were glorious. The prawns were cooked to perfection, and the sauce was a highlight. We couldn't resist lapping up every drop. I went for the Rib Eye Steak Grelhado, served with chorizo and thyme new potatoes. The steak itself lacked flavour and again it was my guest’s dish that caught our attention. She ordered the Furtos Do Mar Na Chappa which was full of flavour, a sizzling medley of seafood and fish with a rice accompaniment. The seafood was fresh and cooked just right, making it a delightful main course. For dessert, we took the waitress's recommendation and chose the Brazilian authentic Acai na Tigela, a berry sorbet with granola, banana, and honey. It was refreshing and delicious. My guest's choice was spot on, Quindim da Colonizacao, a custard tart, complemented by grated coconut, it was very tasty and provided a satisfying end to the meal. Of course, we washed it all down with some delectable cocktails. The drinks menu is impressive, with a wonderful assortment of mixed-flavoured caipirinhas, which were expertly crafted and delightful. Overall, our evening at Made in Brasil was enjoyable, not just because of the food but also due to the friendliness of the staff and excellent customer service. The talented bar staff, in particular, stood out, ensuring that our drinks were top-notch. While some dishes, like the prawns and seafood medley, shone brightly, others, such as the rib eye steak and salad, left room for improvement. Nevertheless, the vibrant atmosphere and welcoming staff make this a place worth visiting again.

  • TT - London - Review

    Walking into TT - London, to dine at their restaurant, you wouldn’t know you were in the right place. A fine whiskey bottle shop doubles up as a reception space, where you check in. Spread across the ground floor and rooftop, the restaurant is open Tuesday to Sunday, offering dinner from a menu of seasonal wood fired sharing plates and daily specials, alongside cocktails, beers and an extensive wine list. Having been a big fan of TT - London for quite some time, I’d frequented their cellar bar, cinema and even their cocktail making classes for several years and was excited to try the latest string in their well-considered bow. Located three stories up the view is pretty special: the city, Shoreditch town hall and the overground train tracks all in one frame of view. A beautiful day, they had the sides of the terrace down to allow for a lush summer breeze, with retractable walls and roof, TT - London have cracked the code of how to effectively operate an open-air rooftop space in the UK’s unpredictable weather. Known for their epic smoked meats, we were here to sample the plant side of the menu which is surprisingly robust for a restaurant that prides itself on its grill skills. Welcomed with a glass of Crémant whilst we admired the view and debated our order, we started with just a simple ciabatta which was exceptional in itself; A huge slab of freshly baked bread, we were off to a great start. We ordered the burnt aubergine; brown butter yoghurt, pomegranate, and almond which was delicious, the hummus; served with tahini and baby cucumber, and the smoked oyster mushrooms; with Burford brown egg yolk, very tasty and moreish. The Grilled Cabbage was my personal favourite; salty, crispy and creamy all at the same time, one of those dishes that inspires you to experiment with the ingredients at home (but knowing you could never recreate it). Ending with a sticky toffee pudding to share served old school dinner vibes e.g. a massive fluffy slice with loads of toffee sauce and a creamy side, we ended our meal feeling fat and happy and ready to roll into our weekends. A picturesque spot in the heart of Shoreditch, the new restaurant at TT London is a must try, offering delicious food and drinks in a setting to match. Although fast becoming known for their epic meat skills, they have a vegi side of the menu which is well thought through and tasty, and we would highly recommend this option if looking to cater for a mixed group.
