While we wait impatiently for restaurants to reopen, one London favourite is dashing ahead and launching its first hot delivery service. Blacklock are kicking off a new delivery service this coming weekend which will deliver hot meals for the first time.
And what a menu it is, split into buns, chops, meat-free and chicken along with sides, sauces, puddings and drinks.
The buns - described as "Blacklock cuddles in a bun" comprise a burger, steak sarnie and a pigs head bun. There are two chop dishes - thick cub lamb chops and dictionary thick pork chops. Both, you'll be pleased to hear come with their flatbread to soak up the juices.
Serving chicken will be a first for Blacklock - the chickens in question comes from a free-range farm in Devon and they're chargrilled served whole, half, or as a 'chop' for solo diners.
As you might expect, there's loads on the menu to please - here are just some of the highlights.
- Pigs head nuggets - "Legally addictive, we are pleased to confirm. Dunk liberally in gravy for added comfort"
- BFC - "Blacklock Fried Chicken. Tender thighs are tumbled in spice and fried in beef dripping"
- 10-hour ash roasted sweet potato - "Potatoes sleep overnight in the dying embers of the barbecue awakening tender and smokey the morning after."
- Terry's chocolate orange doughnuts
Delivery begins on Friday, starting with Shoreditch, expanding soon after to Battersea/Wandsworth, then Camden and Wood Green shortly after.
