My family isn’t one of those to have Sunday Roast. Sometimes I wish we did. I grew up with my nose buried in books and the sunday roasts that the characters in story books used to talk about would fill my imagination with wonders. However, back then, it’s really a case of “can’t miss what you’ve never had”. So I never really knew what I was missing out on.
There is a certain charm, a certain beauty about a good roast. Something hearty, something rustic and something absolutely delicious. And that crunch and crack of a good crackling! Gosh, that sends shivers down my spine.
I don’t know what brought it on anymore. But there was a good ol’ hankering for some really amazing crackling and my favourite roast-to-buy takeaway had closed its door forever. Thankfully a dear friend recommended The Roast Kitchen. “Good Roast!” she said. I was so there.
So one Sunday saw K and I zipping along to Kew. It’s a fair way to go for Roast, but I’ll travel almost anywhere for a good chow, really.
Stepping in, wafts of beautiful smells came to greet us from within. Greatly encouraged by what we saw in the window, we started to debate exactly what we would choose to have for lunch. It’s hard to decide, there’s way too many to decide!
The other thing that I really liked about this place was the simple but decidedly homely decor. It was very cozy and made me feel quite at ease. How cute is it?!
But you can’t eat decor. So how was the food?
Good. Awesome. Delicious. Freaking amazing. Crackle-licious. I could go on and on. I’d love to go right back! The meats were beautifully tender and not dry at all. Some roasts can get a bit dry, but this wasn’t. Love, love, love, I’ll go right back!
Try it out! My housemate hasn’t tried it yet so I think I’ll have to make another visit during the April holidays. Such a pain , I know. *grins*
