Holloway Road, once an area purely reserved for late-night questionable food choices and dodgy pubs rammed with Arsenal fans is quickly becoming the new destination for creative dining and Croft Kitchen, the pop up dining club inside Vagabond, is a welcome addition to the scene.
Set up by ex-Mugaritz chef, Phil Walther, the communal dining pop up serves seasonal British dishes in a supper club setting from Sunday to Thursdays through the summer.
With a weekly-changing menu, for the refreshingly price of £30 a head, the dishes are inspired by classics from across the UK and made with local produce.
All seven dishes were pretty outstanding and favourites included; mackerel with lightly salted lemon and samphire , a creamy golden egg yolk with girrolles and sweetcorn followed by crusty Peckham Rye bread with juicy pork rillettes, tangy fermented cabbage and pickles finished off with delightfully sweet strawberries and raspberries coated in fennel vinegar
To go along with the food there’s English sparkling wine, IPA’s and seasonal cocktails and with only 35 places per night you’ll need to book (email: firstname.lastname@example.org ).
