Now this is something new for town - just opened in Westbourne Park is London's first broth bar - called Bone Tea. What is a broth bar, you ask? Essentially it's slightly poshed up stock, something which has apparently been a hit in the states (see Brodo for an example). It's also been seen as something of a healthy drink too in "wellness circles" (although some might argue with that assertion).
As for this particular broth bar, it comes from Chefs Bjorn Van Der Horst and Omar Romero who previously worked together at the Rosewood in Holborn. On the menu (it's not all broth) will be:
- Meat Marmalade (£9)
- Bone Tea Glazed Chicken Wings (£6)
- Pulled Pork or Beef Bun (£9/ £9.50)
- Bone Tea Fruit Scones with Clotted Cream (£6).
And all those dishes will be used to create the various broths: Beef (£4.50), Pork (£4), Chicken (£3.50), Mushroom (£3) and Fruit (£3). They'll be served with bread or you can take home a litre too. Alongside all that, a small selection of wines, as well as whiskey and mezcals.
So - if you've been craving a broth fix, now you know where to go (although more are promised for the capital too).
