It’s not often I treat myself to steak (mainly because of the price), so it had better be worth it. Luckily, the Chop Shop didn’t disappoint.

My Creekstone USDA Hanger steak was £16 alone, but I savoured every last tender piece. The waiter recommended having it medium rare which I was a little hesitant but remembered my Bleeker Street Burger experience. Ever had rare steak which is like chewing gum, seemingly never breaking down no matter how much you chew?

Fortunately it wasn’t too stringy or difficult to chew which is testimony to the quality of meat they’re using. The steak was more than happy to soak up the tangy vinaigrette meaning every time you chewed you would get a short burst of sweetness.

I chose chips to accompany my steak, but wish and suggest I ordered vegetables to go with my steak. It just need another texture to go along with the steak.

Oh dear lord. The butterscotch custard was amazing. Beautifully sweet and crunchy shortbread cookies, thick layer of Chantilly cream and an even thicker layer of salty caramel. I even had smaller spoonfuls so it would last twice as long it was that good.

I may have put on a stone, but it was totally worth it.

The restaurant has a relaxed atmosphere featuring exposed brickwork, inoffensive indie music playing in the background (thumbs up for playing ‘ Another Sunny Day’ by Belle and Sebastian) and butchers knives sticking out of the wall!
