So what is the flat iron steak ?
For only £10, the Flat Iron Steak is served with leaf salad.
You are given the choice of 4 sides ranging from Dripping cooked chips, Creamed Spinach, Market Greens, Sophie’s Salad and Roasted Aubergines for £2.50-3.50.
Plus £1 for sauces ~ Bearnaise, peppercorn etc.
The steak was presented to me cooked perfectly medium rare; so pink and still juicy.
But I found the steak although it was tender, it was rather chewy and dare I say alittle lacking in flavour, and I had to resort to sitting there masticating for awhile.
My accomplice had to demolish the rest of the steak for me.
The chips were hollow and dry, and tried to escape the wrath of my fork as I tried to impale them – so that peppercorn sauce was seriously needed.
Like many of the other no reservation restaurants, come here early to avoid an arduously long wait. However, you are welcome to wait in the bar downstairs.
I really wanted to fall in love with Flat Iron, but the food didn’t make me quiver in pleasure as much as I wanted it to.
Having said that I did really like the ambiance, the service was faultless plus where else are you going to find steak for £10 in central London?
