The Fats Walrus pub in New Cross has been a success with locals because it opened in 2016, however with the arrival of Complete Beast within the kitchen, it is set to take over the remainder of the city. Sam and Alicja Bryant, who opened Coal Rooms in Peckham earlier than combining their love of wood-fired cooking and one-on-one eating with Complete Beast, had been popping up in south London for a couple of years, together with included on the Fats Walrus. Now they’re taking pub grub to a brand new degree after discovering a everlasting residence contained in the New Cross boozer.
And once we say a brand new degree, we actually imply it – the consolation meals menu reads nice and tastes even higher, due to actual consideration to element within the kitchen. Not solely do the duo be certain that each factor of the animal is used (the identical philosophy additionally applies to greens and contemporary produce), however all the things is do-it-yourself. The inexperienced chorizo used for the tacos is do-it-yourself, with the pork fats was a crisp for the filling. The ham contained in the crispy ham, mushroom, smoked garlic, and mozzarella crepe is cured by them, and the pickle and sizzling sauce sides are do-it-yourself—Findus might by no means try this.
The potato bread used for the burger buns and buns is baked on website, and that makes a distinction. The buns are tender and spongy, the proper car for a very good dry aged cheeseburger topped with burger sauce and extra of these nice pickles. The bread model, sliced additional thick, is fried in hen fats, topped with ranch slaw and again gravy, and topped with a chunk of sizzling, crispy, well-spiced Nashville fried hen. And shout out potatoes in a wealthy, hazelnut massaman curry sauce and sprinkled with crispy onions – a mini potato curry actually is the form of facet dish we will get on board.
It isn’t simple to make dishes we have eaten lots of of instances particular, however Complete Beast does. They’ve a Sunday roast which we’re already planning to return to and might’t wait to see what they’ll do with an out of doors BBQ. That and a few of the pub’s chilled cocktails on the terrace would possibly simply be one of the simplest ways to spend the summer season in south London.
