Review on Roast
Roast restaurant is situated overlooking Borough Market, London's oldest food Market with views of St. Paul's Cathedral. When Iqbal Wahhab opened The Cinnamon Club it was a personal crusade to change the way we think about Indian cuisine. Now he's on a mission to do the same for British food: welcome to Roast.
Following the departure of Lawrence Keogh the reins have been taken up by talented chef Marcus Verbene, who previously worked as executive chef at Browns Hotel in Mayfair, as well as stints at well regarded restaurants Le Caprice, The Ivy and J Sheekey. Fresh seasonal ingredients are judiciously deployed in his menus and he makes excellent use of foraged and wild ingredients in his dishes.
It goes almost goes without saying that proceedings kick off at breakfast time with 'The Full Borough', mulled seasonal fruits with Neals Yard yoghurt or boiled eggs with Marmite 'soldiers'. From then on it's a patriotic bonanza of ingredients, regional recipes and cheeky re-inventions.
