This Rustic Roast Hits The Right Notes Oslo, Hackney 5

A playlist of smooth jazz sets the tone for a chilled Sunday as we sit under filament bulb lamps draped with cloth — an interesting decor choice but we dig it.

Two plates arrive at the nearby kitchen hatch and we’re staggered by the tower of food that is brought towards us. If there’s one word that describes the look of this roast, it’s probably ‘epic’. A huge Yorkshire pudding sits atop medium cooked beef, roast potatoes, parsnips, kale, and carrots, and a small personal jug of gravy is placed to the side. The nut roast looks and proves to be equally delicious and filling.

The carrots are sweet and practically caramelised, and you can tell it’s a fabulous roast by the fluffy potatoes cooked in goose fat. We did try to think about dessert, but there was just no room by the time we got to the bottom of our plates.
