day 936 / 35:
Burnt Enz, so glad that we made it there. it almost feels wrong to post about it now that it's closed on the weekends (there are four thursday night dinners left) as it has to be one of my favourite dining experiences in London. set up in the Climpson & Sons Roastery under some railway arches in East London, it's a temporary restaurant started by Australian, Dave Pynt.
Pynt got his grilling expertise from working in the acclaimed Spanish restaurant, Asador Exebarri. so, this is not your typical grill. we had whole leeks with fresh aioli, lamb ribs, courgettes, beef forerib (incredible) and the star dish, bone marrow (served with watercress and lightly toasted bread). seriously god food. all grilling is done over a charcoal flame and also in their specially built ovens (that are now for sale)
char-grilled cuisine with good friends, in an industrial space, with bulbs strung across the ceiling in a criss-cross fashion.....this is my idea of heaven. now you know.
and this is what it actually looks like when we go out for lunch these days.............
