This rather fine looking shellfish dish is the crab burger from Claw. And if just gazing at that photo makes you fancy it half as much as we do right now, you'll be wanting to know that the streetfood folk behind it have just taken residency at The Three Compasses in Dalston.
From this week until the end of January they'll be serving up a mainly crab-based menu with all their crab coming from Start Bay in Devon.
There'll be five burgers on offer including:
- The Samphire – Devonshire crab with iceberg lettuce, samphire and CLAW sauce
- The Kimchi – Devonshire crab, iceberg lettuce, Korean kimchi and Sriracha
- Octopus – Barbecued Padstow Octopus, BBQ sauce, pickled cucumber and coriander; all served in an organic brioche bun with tarragon salted fries.
As for sides expect Crab & Mac, crab arancini served with harissa mayonnaise or lemon alioli. And - this sounds particularly good - they'll be serving their first brunch dishes at weekend including a lobster BLT and crab grilled cheese with a bloody mary.
Claw is now at The Three Compasses, 99 Dalston Lane, London, E8 1NH until January. Tel 020 7923 4752. Food will be served Monday – Friday 5pm – 10pm; Saturday: 11am – 4pm / 5pm – 10pm and Sunday: 11am – 4pm. Keep up with their news on Twitter @CLAWfood
