At the end of July I paid a visit to Konstam at the Prince Albert, near Kings Cross. I had been very excited about eating there as I had heard lots about the restaurant from the TV series The Urban Chef which followed the head chef/ owner Oliver Rowe in his quest to source all his ingredients from wihtin the M25! The restaurant is relatively small, with an open plan kitchen so you can see your food being prepared.

In the spririt of having a totally British meal we started with a glass of English sparkling wine before moving on to our starters of cuttlefish from the Thames and chicken liver and bacon pate which was absolutely delicious. We then washed our amazing main courses - steak with fresh horseradish, beetroot and onion and pork with goosberry sauce and seasonal veg - down with a lovely bottle of Chapel Down wine! The food was so tasty and fresh and it was great to know that everything had been sourced from so nearby. I would definitely recommend a visit, especially if you are lucky enough to have Oliver himself in the kitchen as we did!
