Polpetto in Soho’s Berwick St serves rather delicious italian small plates.
The menu is clear and simple with the ideology of small plates to share. The dishes on offer however was very unique compared to other places and one of those italian region that I have not tasted before.
I once took my girlfriend to Polpo and it was a wonderful time. So when I heard his flagship makes a return I just got to check it out. After ordering, a welcome basket of rosemary focaccia is served with olive oil. Delicious bread and earthy oil.
This is delicious. Creamy, gooey burrata with a hint of chilli and the agretti adds a resistance of texture to the dish. Drizzle with olive oil and freshly cracked black pepper is like icing on the cake.
On the heavier note we went for the scallops with cauliflower and lardo (£12). This was delicious as well. Tender and perfectly cooked scallops on top of a velvety smooth puree and a note of porky goodness on top. Yummy!
This is porky goodness at its best. Tender and succulent, slightly smoke and savoury. Plus the flavour of the chop matches so well with the pear butter that is slight sweet and tang and the walnut adds a crunch and woody note to the dish. Really really delicious.
Polpetto is a welcoming delight to the London dining arena. If you look for a place to enjoy italian small plates in a relax environment this would be the place for you. Even Jason Statham dines here! (But damn didn’t get to take picture with him thou)
