Another trend spot on my list was Meat Liquor, rather strange for a non-meat eater, but that expressed my level of desperation to visit this establishment. Hidden around the corner from Oxford Street, Meat Liquor doesn’t the most interesting location, but the sign on the door warning “strictly no children after 6pm” instantly put a smile on my face. We arrived at around 5.30pm on a Friday night and were told there would be a short wait, so we went to the bar. The drinks menu is extensive, but I just went for the Crafty Dans IPA (which although it claims to have a ‘hint of hops’ is in fact very hoppy).
Our main reason for visiting was the Super Fatty Patty burger advertised on the Dojo app: a collaboration between Meat liquor and Bone Daddies resulting in a gluttinous burger infused with Japanese flavours. I got the Halloumi & Mushroom burger (£7.50) as I had no other choice really, in a burger place. On the side were a small greek salad (£4.50), fried pickles (£3.50) and onion rings (£3.50). We couldn’t finish everything.
The food arrives swiftly, all on a single tray to share with your dining/devouring partner. Everything tastes amazing and the atmosphere is great too.
A kitchen roll and multiple condiments are provided on every table for your use. Finally, the forte of the meal was a decision to order Picklebacks (£7.50 each). I had never even heard of these before: a shot of bourbon followed by a shot of pickle juice. Even the shot glasses seemed to add to the ease of each shot going down the throat, and I was raving about them for weeks afterwards. Meat Liquor is 10/10 and in this case you should believe the hype.
