I was back in London for the weekend and decided to check out some of the locals of around I used to live. So on the Friday myself and a couple of friends headed down to brick and liquor in Tooting Broadway (about a 2 min walk from the tube station). There is also another B&L in Clapham!
Walking in, I liked the vibes of the decor.. (picture you see is not my own, but just so you can get an idea)
See it’s cool isn’t it? So when writing posts/ Instagram photos I don’t like posting negative therefore don’t publish things where I haven’t really enjoyed however for brick and liquor the food and drinks were top notch, but it was kind of dampened (not ruined) by what I can only imagine was a new member of waiting staff because he was god damn awful, very scatty and not the most approachable! So, if that can be rectified then all good..
Cocktails were unique and fun with an almost famous glitter cocktail (Wow)
Plenty of those consumed along with the salted caramel expresso martini
As there was a group of us we just decided we would get some sharing bits so we went for the arancini and a large sharing board which combined of focaccia, pork belly bites, chicken tenders, chicken skewers, ribs and some nicey nice sauces.
Chorizo & Mozzarella Arancini (£11) – Hand crumbed risotto croquettes stuffed with mozzarella and chorizo served with white truffle mayo
Spinach & Ricotta Arancini (£11) – Hand crumbed risotto croquettes stuffed with mozzarella, ricotta and spinach served with white truffle mayo
The sharing platter is NOT FOR VEGANS, unless you are ok with focaccia 🤣☺️😉 however they do also have a veggie platter on the menu so fear not!
The carnivore platter (large is £38)
Teriyaki steak skewers, chicken skewers, pork belly bites, bbq ribs, and roasted focaccia served with brick and liquor dips!
So verdict is, great cocktails, and great food which between 5 of us came to £35 per head which included the service tip (although I didn’t think tip was deserved). Cocktails are around £9 each. Will definitely go back again though, and I see there’s a brunch menu on offer so would be cool to see how that goes.
