Restaurant in Fitzrovia
Sharing is caring when it comes to food and small plates are my thing. Foley’s restaurant in Fitzrovia does just that and focuses on a number of meat, fish and vegetarians small plates inspired by the spice trail with flavours from the Middle East and Asia. The dishes are original and quirky and, whilst you may hesitate at first that the flavours may not work, I can assure you they do! The taste, combined with the fantastic presentation, makes Foley’s a place worth visiting. I recommend asking for a stool downstairs by the open kitchen, which adds to the atmosphere.
We started off with some complimentary lotus seed nibbles and then cracked on with the sharing plates. My favourite dishes were the Spiced Sweet Potato Fritters Grilled pineapple, cured red onions, saffron coconut curry and the Sticky Pork Tamarind BBQ, crispy pig’s ears, swede vermicelli, buttermilk, toasted cashews. Both dishes were absolutely bursting with flavour!
We tried the Grilled Octopus Black sesame mayo, spicy pork mince, bok choy, housemade sriracha. I wouldn’t normally choose this dish but surprisingly loved it.
We also had the Chicken Soba noodles, corn, peach, coconut labneh, ginger, bacon, spring onion Vietnamese Summer Roll Cured plaice fillet, pickled rice paper, mango, purple yam, thai basil, edamame, Rib Eye Steak and Chicken Lollipop Dill pickles, sweet soy. All of the dishhes were inventive and flavoursome and we were suitably impressed. Prices range from around £6-12 per dish and we would recommend 3 each.
The cocktails were fantastic, particularly the Cusco’ Sour – Macchu Pisco, lime, maracuya juice, pineapple syrup, Armago bitters, absinth.
Foley’s restaurant in Fitzrovia serves unique and inventive dishes with a twist and it is definitely one to check out.
