10 GREEK STREET, SOHO, LONDON W1D 4DH
10 Greek Street – named after its street address in Soho is a small, modern restaurant which seats around 30 diners. The decor is simple and understated – off-white tiles, chalkboard menus and black unclothed tables. The seasonal menu is updated daily.
I ordered a special from the blackboard – guinea fowl, new potatoes, peas and summer truffle. I had never tasted guinea fowl before, it has chicken-like white meat, but tastes slightly like pheasant, not overly gamey. The meat tasted fantastic – succulent and juicy. The new potatoes were lightly crushed, perfectly seasoned and flavoured with capers and herbs – beautiful. Summer truffle I have also never tried – a much more subtle flavour to the black winter truffle I have tasted in Australia.
I had the chocolate cheesecake with blackberries for dessert on the recommendation from the waiter. An enjoyable dessert, classic flavour combination – but very conservative.
