I stopped for a bite on the way home at a new place and ordered a steak baguette - They cut it vertically, and put the steak in between. Made it impossible to eat. Conflicted as to whether to be annoyed or impressed with the idea to produce a vertical sandwich.

Also not in their favour was realizing after sitting down that the entire bar rotates once an hour so got slightly sea-sick.

So not recommended then? I was going to try that next time I'm in town as it's so close to my office (on corner of Randolph and Wacker).
Did you get caught up in the fire yesterday? I think every fire appliance including the boat was in attendance.

No give it a bash - the food honestly was pretty good and nice surroundings, just impossible to actually eat it as a sandwich!

Friday night treat!

I’ve taken measurements for the guiness book of records to confirm the words smallest burgers.

Just thin cut and arranged so there is a bit of space. Salt, pepper and smeared with butter. Baked until gold/crisped.

...then more salt.

I am going to have a go at at this at the weekend but with different veg. Time to crack out the mandolin

Well that was fun. Just whacked it into the oven along with some harissa marinated chicken legs

Did you drop the food on the floor for 1 hour like the instructions suggest?

I just assumed the drop it comment was "drop it into the oven for an hour"

Nice bit of Nandos sauce on the side of that, and some coleslaw - job jobbed.... were the potatoes a bit mushy?

The potatoes were crispy on the top and cooked though on the bottom. I used plain white potatoes and they still held their shape and were not mushy. I didn't use any butter, but I brushed the tops with olive oil, the veg gave out enough liquid to keep it all moist and create a bit of a sauce.

I can’t stand skin, so it looks crap. Drier than a really dry thing on a summers day too.

As a general rule of thumb you cannot "slow cook" anything lean so forget chicken.

It's the collagen and fats that keep meat moist when its cooked (not the sauce or braising liquid as many assume).

/mum (bless her!)

it cant be chewy its got lots of sauce with it!

Fair enough! We’d seen it so thought to give it ago. It’ll be pork belly or something next time.

A half decent bit of belly seamed out, rolled, braised then fast roasted is an amazing meal. I used to do this as part of a "modern cassoulet" with duck etc

No, I'm a fairly frequent visitor, but in London this week. I shall be sure to give it a go next time - I'm overdue a visit. Thanks for taking the time to respond! thumbup

I only browse here every now and then but can only surmise illmonkey's username is deliberately real or he's atoning for something - the last few plates are tragic smile

No offence meant illmonkey - I assume it's a diet you're on and can sympathise massively...just dropped 3.5st myself. What I would strongly recommend is not killing yourself on the enjoyment of eating front...otherwise it'll be really tough keeping the weight off (assuming you are dieting).
