SquareMeal Review of
Hoppers St Christopher's Place
Since opening back in 2015, Sri Lankan street-food restaurant Hoppers has become a cult London favourite, even winning our Best New Restaurant Award. Now, it’s birthed a considerably larger sibling in Marylebone, which is spread across two floors and comes complete with an outdoor terrace. The menu features signature Hoppers dishes from the original site in Soho, but there are still plenty of new plates on offer. ‘Short eats’ include jaffna beef rib fry and tuna and tapioca cutlets with avocado sambol, while larger sharing dishes see claypot baby chicken kukul maas, and black pork ribs with fennel and turmeric sambol, alongside a daily-changing lunchtime rice and kari plate. Meanwhile, the new cocktail list takes inspiration from the exotic flora, vegetation and fruits of Sri Lanka focusing on genever and the south Asian spirit arrack.
