While Soho has a wealth of restaurants spanning every cuisine under the sun, 10 Greek Street has established itself in the locale as something of a trusted neighbourhood restaurant. It’s that rare hidden treasure, offering high-quality, no-frills modern European cooking where you can guarantee you will leave its doors well fed. And it’s this kind of comforting food, transforming seasonal produce into seemingly simple yet stunning dishes, that we could all use a bit more of as we head into these harsher winter months. Luckily the restaurant has teamed up with dinner delivery service Dishpatch to bring a taste of 10 Greek Street to any home in the UK.
The Meal Kit
The kit comes with all the food part pre-cooked and packaged in handily numbered parcels to be easily reheated and put together with the help of the included instructions. This kit is all about creating that convivial atmosphere around the dining table, so rather than lots of finickity courses it is focused more around the concept of a feast to be shared, designed to be served up on platters that showcase the generous portions and plentiful side dishes.
How many does it feed?
The food was thoughtfully packaged, and came nestled in a sustainable and reusable wool lining. The accompanying leaflet gave a nice introduction to the experience, along with instructions even the most cooking adverse can follow with ease.
All of the food was heated on the hob. Taking into account a little pan juggling and keeping an eye on timings, the entire meal went from box to plate in just 15 minutes.
With seasonality front and centre, the contents of the box regularly changes. The star of the show in Brummell’s kit was a slow-cooked short rib of Dexter beef. While such a juicy, tender dish would normally take several hours, the fact that here you could achieve such a melt-in-the-mouth result in less than 15 minutes is nothing short of a marvel. This was accompanied by a selection of confit potatoes, braised curly kale, carrots and parsnips that you required just a slight browning in the pan before serving, and delivering just as much depth of flavour as the meat. The was finished off with a perfectly moist poached quince, polenta and almond cake, which came supplied with a necessary dollop of creme fraiche for a perfectly balanced pud.
A two-course meal for two, including delivery, £55
Just as with the in-restaurant dining experience, with this box you will finish your meal comforted and satisfied, if you are even able to polish it all off at all.
