I had been looking into trying to find a place that specialised in meatballs, I have tried Mishkins and whilst I love the atmosphere there…the balls fell a little short. There’s a place called Meatball Shop in New York that’s right on the money, meatballs any way you like and they taste divine. I was really excited to try Giant Robot, I had heard good things, so was dying to try it!
The restaurant is designed really well, a friendly atmosphere and an American look and feel to it. I really loved that throughout the whole meal it was really relaxed, the waiting staff were friendly and aware of what was going on, I never felt that I couldn’t get their attention. The menu is fantastic, there’s a real plethora of choice and it’s great to choose a dish and decide if you want it small or large. It’s really refreshing to not be overloaded and also for the prices to be really reasonable when the dish is smaller. Here’s a little piece of the menu below…mmmm
smoked salmon, ricotta, arugula, mint 96p
salami & cannellini bean, rosemary, garlic 85p
Everything was perfectly spot on! The beef slider was amazing; soft, sweet bread and melt in the mouth beef meatball with just enough sauce to accompany it. It’s fresh and the ingredients just blend together perfectly.
I really would recommend this place, it’s cheap, it’s friendly, really relaxed with great food and great service. What more do you really want?
