SquareMeal Review of Mimino

Bronze Award

An unprepossessing home-from-home for expats from the Caucasus, this “lightless, scruffy basement” looks like it has been transported whole from the Easter Bloc. There’s nothing fancy here and service is endearingly unpolished, but the gutsy cooking more than makes up for any decorative austerity. The kitchen’s heart is in Georgia, and the menu takes no prisoners: come here for wholesome soups, baked-to-order mjadi (cornbread), peasant stews, Georgian ‘pizzas’ and high-protein mtsvadi (kebabs), as well as specialities such as badrijani (roasted aubergines with walnut sauce and spices), khinkali (savoury dumplings) and tsiplyonok tabaka (dry-roast chicken with mashed potatoes). For afters, don’t miss the special Mimino cake made with condensed milk and cocoa. Fizzy green lemonade (tarhun) should satisfy the abstainers, while the line-up of esoteric Georgian wines makes boozing here a fascinating game of chance. Live music on Saturday nights.

The restaurant is quite popular among Russians and British who had any experience of Russia or Gergia (be it business, tourism or friends). The cuisine is a mix between Georgian, Russian and Ukrainian. Adjarian Khachapuri were amazing, so was Khinkali (meat dumplings). Salad with Suluguni chese was too simple, but the chese was very tasty. There is good selection of Gergian wine which is perfect with this food because of it rich and fruity flavour. The interiour is quite generic, bearing little connection with the region, however simplicity has not impacted the total comfort and cosyness. The prices are reasonable, expect something like £70-90 per two with a bottle of wine.
