The Three-Minute Review – Fallow, London

My Three Minute Reviews spill the beans on some of the brightest and best people and  businesses producing some of the most delicious food I’ve encountered. This time around, I’d like to tell you about Fallow, one of my absolute favourite places to eat in London. Tucked away on Heddon Street, which is just off Regent St, it’s a brilliant option for lunch if you’re out shopping – and it’s a great alternative to the usual chain-restaurants that seem to be all over the place in that part of town.Run by chefs Jack Croft and Will Murray, Fallow focuses on very simple but impressive modern British and Irish food – and it’s somewhere I can rarely resist dropping in to when I’m nearby.

What: Fallow
Where: 10 Heddon Street, Mayfair W1B 4BX
Website: www.fallowrestaurant.com
When: Perfect for lunch
Why: Amazing produce with a sustainability and waste free core value. While Fallow’s not vegan, there are vegan and vegetarian options on the menu. And everything that’s animal-based is sourced to the very highest level. The menu here is small, and changes regularly depending what’s available – so hats off on the sustainability front! Everything is seasonal, and focuses mainly on British and Irish produce. Many also visit to try the Cod head dish. I was mightily impressed by the fact they have a dish using cod head – which is a fantastically innovative way of using something that would normally be wasted. They also do an amazing pea, mushroom, sorrel dish with thyme oil. And there’s an incredible soft-serve ice cream, made using the rather wonderful chocolate from the people at Pump Street and most recently left over sourdough crunch. It’s worth popping by just for that experience alone!

Bettina’s Kitchen Dish Recommendation: There’s clever use of the humble corn in one dish. It’s used to create a fantastic vegan dish of fried corn ‘ribs’, finished with a squeeze of lime and dusted with kombu seasoning. Amaze-ing! Honestly everything I we had has been fantastic!
