15/8/16 - updated with soft launch details.
It was only a matter of time. We'd grown up adoring a Sunday carvery, but it's something which isn't quite as prevalent as we'd like. Now one of the founders of Euphorium is on a mission to bring them back with Carve.
It's not quite the type of carvery you might remember, though. One of their main dishes will be the "carvepot" billed as high-protein pots of freshly carved fish, meat or vegetables (we're not quite sure how they carve those), mixed with spices, rice, relishes and roots. You can either grab one of those or make one yourself - together with a roll or sauce they'll come to £6.95.
As for some of those pre-made combinations? They include:
- smoked pork leg with apple slaw, crème fraiche, piquillo peppers and pineapple ketchup; roasted tofu with sesame seed crust, tamari, ginger and turmeric root; or salmon gravadlax with leeks, fennel, radish, chopped egg,
- roasted tofu with sesame seed crust, tamari, ginger and turmeric root; salmon gravadlax with leeks, fennel, radish, chopped egg,
- salmon gravadlax with leeks, fennel, radish, chopped egg, dill and mustard.
And there will be breakfast pots too - they include Cumberland sausage meatloaf with ground Landroc pork, nutmeg, sage and a whole loin of dry cured bacon with a Seville orange marmalade glaze, served with sides including bubble and squeak and rumbled free range eggs (that's richer scrambled eggs).
And as with Euphorium before it - expect this to only be the first Carve, many more are planned. And it'll be cashless too - so you can order everything in advance.
Carve opens 15 August 2016 at 116 – 120 Tooley Street, London SE1 2TH. Until 17 August 2016, all their carvepots will be £2.50 for the soft launch. For more, follow them on Twitter @CarveCity
