The area around Blue Anchor Lane, Spa Terminus and Maltby Street Market has become one of London's great food destinations, with some outstanding producers alongside street food vendors and out-and-out restaurants proving incredibly popular with Londoners. You can add another restaurant to that list - Fine Cut Butchers - a butchery and restaurant that combines the best of Brazilian and Italian gastronomy in a neat package on Blue Anchor Lane.
Seven days a week you'll find the butchery open and ready to serve. Fine Cut Butchers specialises in beef and pork, particularly in Brazilian cuts like picanha (rump cap), maminha (rump tail), and costela (flank on the bone), but the butchery has everything you'd expect from a good butcher, as well as doing a solid line in Italian cured meats and Brazilian snacks. It's definitely worth a visit for any Brazilians who find themselves pining for home comforts!
If you head to Fine Cut Butchers for dinner from Wednesday to Saturday, you'll find the restaurant is open too. The restaurant works on a simple premise - choose the meat you want from the butcher's counter, then take a seat in the dining room and the Fine Cut team will bring it through with a healthy helping of sides. Many of the cuts are Brazilian, but they are often served with a mixture of Brazilian and Italian side dishes, from grilled vegetables to farofa and plantain. You can get your grilled meat in a panini if you're on the go, or have it grilled on skewers in a more authentic Brazilian style. There are specials available too, like Brazilian fried chicken and salt cod fritters.
Desserts are simple but very effective - creme caramel, a homemade chocolate mousse and banana and nutella all hit the spot. Fine Cut Butchers also regularly hosts live Brazilian music, so head on over for a real taste of Brazil.
