Not quite the Stoke Newington original, but we went to try out Good Egg in their Kingly Court home whilst out and about one Sunday evening. Famous for its brunch of course, I was intrigued to see what they would be able to offer at other meal times. Kingly Court, as always, was buzzing with activity but as it was early evening it was easy enough to secure a table.
The menu was my favourite kind of menu – plenty of small dishes to share and a fairly nice sized vegetarian portion to it. From the dips we ordered the Labneh and the Whipped green feta. I preferred the Labneh which also had some pickled rhubarb in the mix.
For the rest of the dishes we tried Aubergine shawarma, Roasted cauliflower and tahini and the Batata harif. All of them were pretty good but the cauliflower stole the show! With plenty of sumac thrown into the dish it was tasty and just perfect for an early evening meal.
The Good Egg served a true mezze with a range of dishes although I’d argue that it is a little overpriced for what we ate. However given it is located in the heart of London, maybe it can get away with it. Was it the best Middle-Eastern food I’ve ever had in London? Probably not but if you are out and about and want somewhere quick and easy then I do think it’s worth trying it out.
Maybe next time I’ll try the Buttermilk roots.. Enjoy!
