    I love trying foods and flavours from all over the globe – BUT, you really don’t get better than good old British cooking though, do you? Steak. Roast Beef. Ham, Egg and Chips – come on, I dare you to name a more iconic trio!

    I’ve fallen in love with a new British Brasserie in Soho so I’m excited to tell you guys all about it. It’s down on Old Compton Street and aptly named the Old Compton Brasserie. The menu is based around British classics but with an elevated twist.

    There’s a killer cocktail menu too – themed around true Soho legends like Ronnie Scott and Soho Pam. The Regina Fong is simply FABULOUS and even arrives at your table in a disco ball!
    The restaurant itself is gorgeous too. Super spacious, with street art on the walls and a huge wrap around bar up front. Towards the back you’ve got incredible industrial style beams and huge leather banquettes where you can hide away while you enjoy your food.

    We kicked off our meal with two of the highly recommended starters. Mine – the tempura prawn taco (£8.50) – was a huge king prawn deep fried and served with crunchy pickled vegetables and a tangy citrus mayo.
    Tom went for the Kedgeree Scotch Egg (£5.50) created with delicious spiced chunks of fish encasing a perfectly cooked egg, rather than the traditional meat filling. The outer coating had the perfect bite to it and was all beautifully brought together with the creamy curry mayo - a fab dish for lunch or dinner!
    For mains, I went for the classic Ham, Egg and Chips (£15). A proper British classic - I love the fact you’re served a bacon chop here rather than a gammon steak which made the whole dish feel so much more premium.
    Tom ordered the Grilled Lamb Rump (£22) which was served with alongside salt baked celeriac on a bed of kale, pea, broad bean & mint relish
    For sides, we shared an extra portion of Triple Cooked Chips (£4.50) - because one is never enough -and some buttery greens (£4.50) in an effort to restore some balance! We finished off the evening by sharing a Lemon Posset before heading off into the bright lights of Soho.
    The restaurant is open all day so you can book for breakfast, lunch and dinner - and it also makes a great spot for a few drinks after work! I definitely recommend getting yourself down there ASAP!
