As you’d expect from the name, Roast know their way around a roast dinner.
“I love my roast dinners, but I wish there was a messier way to eat them!” If you’ve ever said this, you’re exactly the kind of person who’s going to love Roast, the London restaurant who took it upon themselves to create the roast dinner burger. Exactly what the roast dinner needed – or an unholy bastardisation of all that is good and holy? You decide!
Let’s get one thing straight: whatever your opinion, this is proper food porn. It’s also a pretty solid way to tank any diet you’re on. Unless that diet mostly involves eating Yorkshire puddings and beef – in which case, hit me up with the details! The roast dinner burger is composed of 48-day aged sirloin of beef, ale Cheddar, pickled red cabbage, carrot chutney, and horseradish, served in a rosemary potato bun with a side of chips. It’s a pretty intense burger experience, which probably explains the £28 price tag…
Aside from this emperor of roasts, Roast also offer a dedicated roast dinner menu on Sundays. Again, it isn’t exactly cheap, but they are the roast specialists, so you can be sure what you’re getting is the best. Lamb shoulder, free range chicken, and pork belly all put in an appearance, whilst the a la carte menu centres on modern British cooking, both meaty and meat-free.
For a lighter bite, they also offer a Roast-to-go menu. Come breakfast time, you can chow down on a bacon butty, a sausage butty, or even a Scotch egg butty. The sandwich menu starts at 11am, from which you can grab a roast-influenced sandwich and head off on your day. The weather may not always be roasting, but something always is down at Roast!
