Androuet

Squaremeal Review of Androuet ?

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.

The bees' knees for cheese

by   platinum reviewer (164)

Jun 2013

Androuet serves up a cheese called “trufflew” which is made of, oh go on guess…ewe cheese infused with truffle (see what they did there?). Which goes to prove that spruced up Spitalfields hasn't managed to stamp out every trace of creativity. The new broom of change may have swept away the grubby/charming stalls of old (Squarepie survived but moved in to proper premises, sell outs) and replaced it with serviceable/bland chain eateries, but places like Androuet provide a little personality. OK, it's...

This review has to be read in the context that it is written by an ardent cheese lover, so impartiality has taken somewhat of a back seat…! Despite working nearby for some 2 years, I did not know of Androuet's existence until fairly recently, which given my current struggle against middle-aged spread, is probably no bad thing. Trouble is, I will undoubtedly be making up for lost time with regular visits from now on. We had a table on the outside terrace which abuts Spitalfields Market, so great...

    you’d think i would have learnt mY lesson and stayed away from the cheese after the epic #foodcoma i suffered from after jimmy’s pop up, balham lodge. nope, it’s winter and there is the need for hot cheese, cold meats and red wine! carina was feeling the exact same so we headed down to androuet in spitalfields market for dinner and a catch up on friday.
    without a reservation, we were lucky to grab a table outside before the next group was due. dining al fresco with heaters and blankies, i felt like i was on holiday. i was so happy we were able to sit outside saving me from mY hate of stinky cheese. it was very...

    It’s been a while since I&ve visited Spitalfields and my, what a sanitised place it has become eh! I rather enjoyed my rainy stomp from Moorgate, navigating my way through all the roadworks around Liverpool Street and admiring Broadgate Ice Rink en route though. By the time I arrived, the market had all but packed up and closed, but the few permanent dining hotspots were starting to fill with the après workers all gagging for liquid sustenance and trendy nibbles. Elbows at the ready, I nudged my way into Androuet by way of their rustic cheese bar.
