Mishkin's on Urbanspoon

Square Meal

 

Mishkin’s is yet another of Russell Norman’s culinary ventures. After a recent trip to Israel we were keen to see how  Mishkin’s compared to some of the dining experiences we’ve had there.

 

Sauerkraut

Chicken & Matza ball soup (7.5/10)

Mishking’s: Chicken & Matzo ball soup (7.5/10)

 

The dishes at Mishkin’s are focussed around old traditional Ashkenazi Jewish dishes (mainly Polish & Russian). The interior is that of a very relaxed 50′s / 60′s type jukebox bar / restaurant (…it’s as if you’re in a ‘Happydays’ episode and Arthur Fonzarelli might pop-around the corner at any moment).

  • Whitebait, garlic mayo & parsley sauce (7/10)
  • Chicken & Matzo ball soup (7.5/10)
  • Chopped chicken liver with schmaltzed radish (8/10)
  • Salt beef burger with onion rings and fries (7/10)
  • Goat’s cheese, sweet potato and pine nuts pancake (8/10)
  • Berry & praline pavlova (8/10)
  • Bread and butter pudding (8/10)

The food at Mishkin’s is very comforting and the dishes we tried were all tasty, but at the same time none of the dishes are mindblowing, just very tasty comfort food (the same can be said for any of Russell Norman’s establishments).

 

Bread and butter pudding (8/10)

In total we paid £68 at  Mishkin’s (incl. service charge, a bottle of water and three coffees), which is a fair price.

 

Overall rating for Mishkin’s: 7.5/10

(The rating is based on the quality of cooking, ingredients, ambience and price)
