1A Shepherd Street,
I arrived at Café Mish just before the lunch rush. The first thing that struck me was the roasted meat on the back counter. Huge slabs of Salt Beef, Roast Lamb and Roast Angus were screaming ‘slice me up and smother me in dijonnaise’ over the counter. Then I looked at the menu above me and saw Goosenargh Corn-Fed chicken with avocado, Romaine lettuce and Espelette tarragon mayonnaise. My mind was made up, I was ordering both. No, not just for me! I had arranged to meet my friend in Green Park around the corner.
We decided to treat the Roasted Chicken served in a thick sesame roll as a starter. It was jam-packed full of chicken encased in tarragon mayonnaise, which somehow managed to be creamy, rich and light. The Salt Beef gourmet sandwich was the star of the show; slow braised salted beef from Hensons, sweet pickle gherkins, dijonnaise and all on Caraway bread.
We also shared a portion of Mish Chips. The mixture of sweet potato and connoisseurs hand cut chips were served in a perfect little box and sprinkled with spiced Halen Mon salt.
If quality meat-filled premium sandwiches are your bag, then Café Mish is unlikely to disappoint. TIP: If you’re planning on sitting in for lunch, then arrive early to get a seat.
