When described as a nation that up until 10 years ago ate nothing more tasty than boiled mutton and porridge by the New York Times this week, Londoners quite rightly got a bit miffed. But, it turns out, we do still like a bit of mutton. Mind you, we reckon the dishes here are a world apart from what the NYT's writer had in mind.

 

Holborn Dining Room

Calum Franklin's wonderous pie menu includes a curried mutton pie made with slow cooked shoulder and mango salsa for £20.

 

Baba Boom

With two branches (Battersea and Islington) you can head to either for the rotisserie 24 hour marinated mutton shoulder for £12.

 

Dum Biryani

muttondum

Head to Soho for this mutton fry of slow-cooked diced mutton in Andhra Masala for £9. 

 

Temper City

Sadly the mutton rolls are no longer on the menu at Neil Rankin's City restaurant, but instead you can order the whole smoked mutton at £12 per 100g 

 

Hoppers

At Hoppers' two London restaurants, the mutton roll starters are always super popular and just a fiver. 

 

Lyles

They're always changing their menus at Lyles, but right now you can get mutton with potatoes and mustard. 

 

Jikoni

The Mutton Keema Sloppy Joe at Jikoni adds in Pickled Onion, Mint & Mango Chutney in toasted brioch and serves it up with fried padrons for £12.50.

 

Smoking Goat

There's usually some sort of mutton dish on the menu at this Shoreditch Thai. At the moment it's Barbecue Mutton Shoulder Massaman Curry for £24 

 

Ting n Ting

The folk behind this Caribbean restuarant in Merton make such a good mutton curry Sainsbury's got them to do a lamb version for the supermarket. Get the real deal here for just £9.50.

 

People of London, TFIF! 🍻🌞 Today's #NEWLondonCheapEat is a great local Caribbean spot down the Northern Line 🙆 MUTTON CURRY WITH RICE N PEAS from TING N TING in @mertonabbeymills SW19 - £7.90 💯 Garfield's aim is to introduce fine Caribbean foods (whether from from Grenada, Jamaica, Trinidad, Barbados or any of the Caribbean Islands) to the masses. And they're doing a good job, standing the test of time in that same spot for an impressive 15 years ✊ All their mains come in at £7.90. Their mutton curry is the award-winning one they produced for Sainsbury's (but using lamb instead), with tender chunks of quality mutton, seasoned with a mix of classic Caribbean herbs and spices, cooked to medium hot. They're jerk is another favourite, with meat grilled on their constantly smoking BBQ out the front 🔥 By @thecutlerychronicles Check 💻 londoncheapeats.com for the full write-up, and 100+ other cheap eats for £8 or less 👀😁 #LondonCheapEats‬ #LCERestaurantDish #LCEOnTheGo
