Made in Camden

Made in Camden sits inside the Roundhouse Theatre – part of Camden’s cutting edge music and performance scene.

We convened for D’s birthday and our large group of 28 occupied one entire end of the restaurant – and due to our group size, had Set Menu C for £23 each.

Round 3 – Pan fried sea bass.  This was my favourite – smoky, firm sea bass with flat bread and yoghurt to make little fish sandwiches.

I don’t recall this dish and it seems it didn’t make much of an impact as I forgot to take a photo of it!

Final dish – Pork Belly with Butternut squash.  The pork belly was every carnivore’s dream – soft, melt in the mouth with a crispy crackling topping.  The pureed squash was largely ignored!

Dessert was a choice of Apple & Rhubarb crumble and Chocolate fondant.

Crunchy and crisp on the outside, molten chocolate gooeyness with a raspberry coulis to complement and pistachio bits.

A great end to what was a very interesting and well executed meal.  And for £23 each – it really was a steal!
