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).
When we visited Mishkin’s for lunch we tried the following dishes:
- 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).
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
