SquareMeal Review of Temper City

Bronze Award

Temper Soho opened to rave reviews in 2016, so we’re not surprised that BBQ-loving restaurant has produced a sibling site in City development Angel Court. Next door to Coya, this much-larger Temper sticks to the meaty formula, serving up a range of tacos and flatbreads to share.

The name refers to Rankin’s commitment to tempering his meats, whether it’s Essex beef, Yorkshire pork or Welsh lamb. Take your pick from a high-octane cuisine-hopping menu that runs from must-order blowtorched mackerel tacos freshened with sweet white miso and mashed avocado to little bowls of Thai-style larb combining roasted rice with ‘burnt ends’ for a spicy clash of textures. We recommend ordering the full quota of sauces and finishing off with a gooey-centred cookie, baked in a cast-iron pan.

The wide-ranging selection of gins will entice booze hounds, but there are also soft options including a tart apple and grapefruit spritz. A pop soundtrack adds to Temper’s appeal, while enthusiastic, committed staff seal the deal at this thoroughly modern BBQ joint.

A pleasant experience. Unfortunately we were dining around 2030 and most of the meat cuts had already been sold so the selection was quite small. To be fair, they do advertise heavily that 'once it's gone it's gone!'

When your boss has no TEMPER!
So I booked this for a lunch on my boss' behalf. He was very hesitant about it, and wasn't keen about the menu. When the team had called to confirm the booking, it was in someone else's name, and this left him less than impressed. However, he came back in a much better mood (maybe because he was full with food!) but he enjoyed the food and service. One of the parties had left their phone, so the team went above and beyond by contacting me to let me know... This is definitely one I would recommend, especially as it's a crazy time of the year!
