The Quality Chop House Shop and Cafe

OPENED 296 DAYS AGO

The Quality Chop House, one of the best restaurants in north London (and indeed the city as a whole) has expanded to open a shop and cafe.

It’s next door to the main restaurant and serves more casual food to eat while you get stuck into their second-hand book library, or buy and take away for later on.

The Spot:

You won’t have to look hard to find the shop and cafe because they’re right next door to the restaurant. Here, you can sit back and chill with the papers, or have a look through their selection of second-hand books. They’ve also got a range of recipe book titles to buy and take home and you can stock up on wine and other products too. It’s basically an all-round service.

The Food:

Everything these guys make is brilliant. They’re baking sourdough in-house, plus rye bread, cakes and pork pies (oh, those pork pies!) and of course, there are some cracking sandwiches. Think hot roast meat specials including lamb with mint sauce; ham with mustard; porchetta with crackling and apple puree; chicken with garlic mayo and smoked brisket with mustard and sauerkraut.

There’s also a bacon sandwich to die for on Thursday and Friday mornings – the bread is enriched with fat. Say no more.

In the shop, you can pick up some top-notch provisions like milk, eggs and seasonal fruit and veg. You’ll also be needing terrine, foie gras parfait, mince and dripping toast and the famous confit potatoes because they’re all essentials just like the milk, right?

The Drinks:

The big draw here is the Allpress coffee, a London roastery with a unique hot air roast method designed to best extract the flavour from the bean. There’s also a wine selection to buy from and drink at home, including lots from Burgundy but also elsewhere in the world.

The Damage:

Prices vary for individual products of course but those hot roast meat sandwiches are £6 each. The wines to buy and take away start at £8.50 a bottle.

In a Nutshell:

Every time we think ‘Quality Chop House could be no better’, we find out that actually, it can. Don’t have time for a full blow out on confit potatoes and chicken liver parfait? Buy them to take home. Need a quick sandwich and a refuge from the delights of King’s Cross? QCH has you covered.
