Square Meal Review of Frizzante ?

The ‘rus in urbe’ experience at Hackney City Farm’s scruffy café Frizzante has gone down a storm with east London’s crunchy mamas & their broods. There’s a menu for the ‘young farmers’ – spag bol, eggs on toast & the like – plus a more tantalising blackboard of specials for the grown-ups. Non-breeders are welcome too, but they may want to bring earplugs & vast reserves of patience. The kitchen has a strong Italian leaning, so it’s worth trying the pappardelle with lamb ragù or gnocchetti sardi, however strong the pull of a ‘big farm breakfast’ with eggs freshly laid by the farms’ own hens. Every Thursday, the barn-like space (with its peeling paintwork & dodgy artworks) is miraculously transformed into an atmospheric live music & ‘agriturismo’ dinner venue, when marinated poussin with peperonata, asparagus soup, & Italian cheese with mostarda, lure in locals for a hoedown, Italian-style.

    Frizzante, the cafes that lies within the farm also has residency at the other 2 city farms (that I know of) – Surrey Docks Farm in Rotherhithe and Mudchute Farm on the Isle of Dogs...
