SquareMeal Review of
The legendary House of Androuet was set up in Paris in 1909 & is universally recognised as a grandee among cheesemongers. In addition to outlets in the French capital & Stockholm, it’s now
resident in London with a shop/restaurant amid the throngs of Old Spitalfields Market. Androuet’s opulent interiors are as legendary as its dairy products, & this branch is no exception with
flamboyant chandeliers, intricately printed wallpapers & swathes of washed-our velvet adding some bourgeois glamour to the whiffy proceedings. Shoppers can enjoy a field day among the displays
of ripe specimens, but those wanting to eat also have plenty to relish. Quiches, tartiflettes, fondues & raclette are the mainstays, but the kitchen’s repertoire stretches to plates of
charcuterie, rillettes & terrines, plus cheeseburgers, wild mushrooms with Fourme d’Ambert, or Toulouse sausage & mash (with la tomme fraîche). There’s a desirable alfresco terrace too.
