Find it annoying that delis attract swarms of people despite astronomical prices. Since opening a few weeks ago, Mount Street deli has been mentioned all over the place, so I had to see what all the fuss was about. Chocolate cake from Annabel's? I must say I have had the same cake at Annabel's and this isn't a patch on it I'm afraid whether it's the same recipe or not is questionable.
What is weird is that on a summer day in June their dish of the day is a very Wintery Irish stew with barley, which is really bizarre. Are they not aware of seasonality? How odd. Minestrone is the soup of the day, another slightly odd choice. For a Mayfair-based deli, I would expect more appropriate seasonal selections.
I'm sure they taste delicious but its not really what I want to eat on a Sunny day in June.
Mount Street Deli gets a luke-warm reception from me… When I want to pay exorbitant prices, I will happily plod along to Ottolenghi instead, where at least every single dish is utterly delicious and vibrant, colourful and full of flavour.
