Usually at Eat Street, King’s Cross, owners Cristiano and Kirie Meneghin sell tasty food making use of underappreciated cuts of meat. As well as burgers and ox tongue rolls, the menu also includes Italian-inspired dishes, such as the ox cheeks with caramelised onions and polenta.
As you can see, I was pretty darn pleased with myself when I got my hands on this Heartbreaker burger with pork belly, gorgonzola and other Tongue N Cheek condiments.
The patty is ox heart mixed with other well-aged cuts of beef to create an incredibly succulent texture and wonderfully rich beefy flavour. Even against the silky pork belly and pungent gorgonzola, this patty held it’s own.
It’s a fabulous burger, and what’s more, it’s not trying to recreate what anyone else is doing. It forges its own utterly tasty path.
