Most of us are familiar with Brew Café. Whether you live locally in Clapham, Putney or Wandsworth, many weekends have been spent sampling their delicious brunches and juices. Not to mention, they do some of the best coffees and their brownies are delightful.
This time, for a change, we decided to check out their dinner set menu – 2 courses for £12/ 3 courses for £14.
For our starters, we both went for the caramelised onion and aged Cheddar Quiche with tomato chutney and watercress. Upon request, they swapped my watercress salad to a simple spinach salad. The quiche itself was quite tasty – firm pastry on the outside, soft and cheesy gooey on the inside.
For the mains we both opted for the Steak Frites – Flat Iron steak, béarnaise, fries and house salad. The house salad originally came with watercress and rocket, two leaves that I don’t like very much, so they kindly swapped it for a gem and spinach salad for me.
The steak was perfectly cooked – tender, ruby red and melt-in-the-mouth. The crunchy-edged fries were a decent portion! There are definitely no cutting corners here in terms of quantity or quality just because it was a set menu (as you see quite often in other restaurants).
It was definitely on the quiet side on the evening we visited, which is a shame because I truly think the food was good quality and more people should give the Brew dinner menu a go.
The set menu at Brew is quite delicious and great value for money. It is a great option for a laidback, fuss-free, midweek dinner out if you don’t want to venture into Central London. Everything is cooked well, service is informal and friendly and you can trust the Brew team to deliver their best.
