New establishment, Meat People in Angel has got things just right. From the springbok and steaks on the menu to the non-greasy salt and pepper squid starters.
This new London meat-centered restaurant, settled in a 1920s Grade II-listed building is already racking up the bookings each weekend, with it’s cosy, speakeasy atmosphere and copper and velvet decor.
This may be predominantly a London steak joint but Meat People has a blinding list of cocktails too, the rose petal martini being a firm favourite as well as some good sized (they won’t but your gut after the two courses you have had already) puddings.
Although this does feel like a trendy local joint the staff are friendly, accommodating and upbeat.
We thoroughly enjoyed our ribeye (small £17.50), apparently the most popular Argentinean steak on the menu which would make sense as the head chef is Argentinian.

Meat People

Meat market Blackhouse

New to Smithfields is Blackhouse, a welcome addition to an area that seems to have missed a lot of restaurant openings this year.

Their tagline is Solid. Honest. Simple. And they intend to build on, and take inspiration from, Smithfield’s rich meat market heritage.

It will serve of course, meat. For over 800 years meat has been bought and sold in Smithfield and Blackhouse will carry this tradition on.

With seven cuts of steak, surf and turf and burgers as well as some great seafood dishes on the menu it’s pretty extensive compared to a lot of the new meat options that have popped up this year.

The average main will set you back about £20. We’re pretty interested in the Char Sui Pork Belly coming in at a reasonable £14.25. There are some very nice sounding cocktails including the Mint and Violet Crush and a Banoffee Martini on the cocktail menu that are enough to get us down alone.

Blackhouse also has private dining rooms available as well as acoustic performances most afternoons.

The ultimate accessory for meat lovers everywhere has to be the Bacon Scarf from Swiss designer Natalie Ludera.

The digitally printed scarf also known as "Fou Lard" is available directly from the designers site for the princely sum of $170.

This stylish rasher would make everyone jealous as it's 100% silk and hemmed by hand.

With its' nude tones we reckon it would go with almost anything but mostly as bacon lovers - we just can't get over how amazing it is!

Don't panic, it's a pop up!

Smithfield Market has played host to a zombie themed meat pop up for the release of the latest Resident Evil game.

The market shop went by the name of Wesker & Son with promoters even hinting at the narrative of this fictional butchers quoting "Fine meats since 1966" on their website.

But what was on sale? Well the average meat you get in supermarkets had been fashion into various body parts with the help of what looks like parma ham. Lucky punters could grab "feet" for £6.00 and "hands" for £5.99 and we've got to admit they looked pretty cool.

The butchery pop up was open for two days bringing zombie fans and gaming geeks together to promote Resident Evil 6, with all proceeds from the sold meat going to a UK charity the Limbless Association.

We just wonder if any veggies went...
