THE CHERRY​ ON A STEAK PT 2

If you’ve been following my endeavours, then you’ll know that the last time I dined at Steak and Cherry was a year ago! I rated it a 3.1 out of 5, but now, with it being a year and all, I thought it can’t hurt to reevaluate the experience.


Last time I visited, was during Ramadhan and funnily enough that was exactly the situation this time. My food buddy and I were searching for a place to open our fast and Steak and Cherry was open until 4am so it was a no-brainer.


We ordered far too much: a pre-starter, starter, mains, and desserts. But I do not regret it one bit. C’mon we’d been fasting for almost 20 hours.


Ok, so moving on to the pre-starter…



Tex Mex Nachos £6.95


The waiters were so understanding that we were fasting and brought our nachos to the table bang on 9:53pm so we weren’t sat staring at it for ages.


I don’t know if I’m just saying this because I was so hungry at the time, but I reeeaaaally enjoyed it. It came with three dips, guacamole, sour cream and salsa. The sour cream was my favourite and I feel the guacamole can be a hit or miss. I don’t think I’ve ever had good guacamole consistently. What is that about?


The only thing I’d change is the cheese to crisp ratio. Never be stingy with the cheese. There is no such thing as “too much” cheese. That is just not a thing. So yes, more cheese, please. The spicy chicken topping was good, although I wasn’t too happy with the kidney beans making a surprise appearance every so often.


The portion was quite generous so this was a plus along with the amount of chicken on top, That made up for the lack of cheese.



Steak and Cherry BBQ wings £4.95


I’ll be honest. This was a bit disappointing. The BBQ sauce came as a dip and we were so hungry we forgot about the dip and started eating straight into the tasteless chicken and realised we couldn’t taste any barbeque. We had almost finished the 3 wings by the time we realised our mistake. Gutted isn’t even the word. But nonetheless, it was a good BBQ sauce.



Mac n Cheese £8.95 served with garlic bread


Last year my food buddy had the mac n cheese, and this time I wanted something comforting. What bothered me was that in the years’ difference, nothing had changed. It tasted roughly the same, which was nothing wow. Not much effort went into making this dish from my personal opinion. The garlic bread was better than the pasta and that says a lot.



Carolina Reaper £11.95


This was a burger worthy of its name. Cheese melted over a grilled chicken topped with two onion rings and scotch bonnet salsa and spicy as hell. The bun was slightly burnt but it was nothing overpowering. The burger kept its composure throughout and didn’t fall apart. And then there are the chips. They were just dull and lifeless as you can see from the picture.


The overall bill amounted to £32.80 excluding the drinks and the dessert that came after. There must’ve been a reason I didn’t visit again after a whole year and to be honest, not much had changed. A restaurant should be evolving and getting better. This one just seems to be a little stuck. Until next year perhaps?
