Rather than buy presents for my friends and family's birthdays, i like to take them to places or go somewhere unusual so that we can share an experience. it was recently my mum's 51st and i wanted to take her somewhere nice in London where the two of us could have a chat and some good food so i decided to take her along to the hawksmoor for lunch.
i ordered the roasted bone marrow with onions and toast to start. it was deliciously indulgent and the sweet onions balanced perfectly with the gelatinous marrow - absolute perfection on a plate!
for the main course, i opted for the 250g rib-eye steak - ordered rare.
we also ordered an array of sides including sweet potato, triple cooked chips, buttered greens and bearnaise sauce to share.
Finally we ordered a sticky toffee pudding to share for dessert. i can't begin to describe how good it was - or how i full i was - but it was all worth it!
i highly recommend the express lunch menu at the hawksmoor - it is incredible value at only £26 for three courses and the food really is as delicious as it looks! Our total bill came to just under £90 and included three courses, a glass of prosecco each and service charge. if you'd like to try yourself some of this goodness - you can book a table here
