Slow-roasted lamb shoulder – it’s everywhere you go these days. The once-upon-a-time treat is now seemingly ubiquitous so why would you need to order it here? Well, simply put, if you don’t, you’ll regret it. Roasted in sheep’s milk yoghurt and lamb stock, it comes out soft, forkable and tangy, just the perfect amount of piquancy from the yoghurt to offset the natural fattiness of the lamb. On the whole the menu is dominated by tapas and share plates – so it’s a perfect place for a group. Couples will have more than enough to choose from in the way of small plates but it’s hard to down an entire lamb shoulder between two (kudos to those who try). Charcuterie is top-notch, the tuna sashimi is shamelessly good and the seasonal mushrooms are a veggie delight (as are the side order of chat potatoes).
