SquareMeal Review of Blixen

Bronze Award

Proudly independent, this all-day brasserie is a dependable alternative to Spitalfields’ pervasive chains – not surprising since it’s co-owned by bright spark Clive Watson (of The Garrison and Village East fame). Fans praise Blixen’s “well-done and good-value” food, as well as its spot-on service and buzzy vibe – whether you’re in the light, airy dining room or the rustic wood-toned basement bar. One regular also likes the ‘secret garden’ for a quick lunch. The cooking is broadly European, moving from pea and wild garlic soup or scallop crudo with radish and poppy seeds to robust mains of corn-fed chicken with roasted Jerusalem artichoke and chicken jus or pork belly with spätzle, kale and quince. To round things off, we like the sound of the banana and caramel pudding with coconut sorbet.  Brunch, daytime snacks and Sunday roasts lure the crowds, while drinks encompass house sodas, smoothies, locally brewed beers and some “OK” wines.

This was my first time here and I will be going back. The food is very well cooked and presented, with a good selection for all types, including vegetarian options. The prices are reasonable and service very good. THe wine selection is okay and there are a couple of local beers.

First time at Blixen and I think i'll come again. Love the feeling of the place. It's nice and bright. Loved the bar display. Food was good. My dinning companions enjoyed it too.
