Should you ever find yourself almost being consumed by the crowds at Borough Market, there’s a safe haven sitting majestically just above in The Floral Hall.
Sky rocket up the lift, and you’ll step into a plush & spacious, glass chamber with the highest ceilings & not to mention the best view of the market below.
Roast is a furiously British restaurant, specialising in roasts obviously.
But I’m here on suspiciously humid Saturday afternoon, for brunch.I’ve been mighty stressed lately, and nothing makes me take a few slower steps than enjoying a long decadent breakfast.
For FreshMikeEats. (watch the stories) Lobster Benedict was the most natural choice for this occasion.
Sitting proudly on top two freshly made, pillowy yet crispy English muffins were the chunkiest pieces of lobster which had been bathed in butter, cooked to perfection and tucked on top of perfectly blanched spinach; before a duvet of poached eggs was pulled over & slathered in creamy hollandaise sauce.
Naturally, I had to order the Smoked Pig’s Cheek Benedict too. It is a hard feat to top Lobster, but this Smoked Pig’s Cheek was phenomenal. Sweet, salty with just a thin layer of fat that it melts on the tongue. If that’s what they do to Pig’s cheek here, then you can only imagine what the roasts are like… The unassuming appearance of the Eggs Benedict disguises the fact that this is not just any other Benedict.
It is a Roast Benedict, unrestrained, drenched in butter, & unapologetically delicious. Just look at her.Utter filth.
