Bar and Block Review

Top 10 things you need to know about Bar + Block Steakhouse in Aldgate:

1) If you find yourself in the fast lane of the City of London, either during work or play, and you’re looking for a casual juicy steak joint, then you've come to the right place. Down a quiet street next to a Premier Inn hotel you’ll discover Bar + Block Steakhouse, an expanding enterprise bringing proper, affordable, South American reared steak to hungry Londoners.

2) You'll love the relaxed and chic interiors: brick walls, comfy leather banquettes, wooden parquet flooring, and private booths in a well-lit setting. Explore further and see how expansive this place is - big enough to host any type of gathering.

3) It can take a while to decide what you want from its lengthy and varied menu. Steak is king here (obvs), but the rest of the menu draws inspiration from around the world. Some Asian flavours here, Indian spices there. Fancy fish tonight? You got it. Burgers? Yep.

4) To start, the pulled beef tacos is a good shout, although personally, I'd have liked more meat to balance out all those beans. The salt and pepper squid is decent, although could be a little crispier. Next time, I'll start with the exciting-sounding Asian crispy beef.

5) Expect unique speciality cuts when visiting a steakhouse. For the juiciest steak in London, order the spiral cut fillet, marinated in garlic and parsley for 24 hours. If you're searching for that perfect Instagrammable pic, the Surf & Turf sirloin steak, topped with lobster tail, and cooked in garlic butter over charcoal, will boost your Likes.

6) No steak meal is complete without fries. Sweet potato fries with chorizo, feta and coriander (what a combo) is a fried success, especially when topped by béarnaise or chimichurri sauce.

7) Although the steaks are awesome, the sticky toffee pudding - super soft sponge smothered with sweet toffee syrup and a dollop of vanilla ice cream for good measure - is one of the best I've ever tried. For something richer, a triple chocolate brownie with chocolate toffee sauce and vanilla ice cream will satisfy.

8) If you're fast enough, its Happy Hour every Monday-Thursday, 5-7pm which means half-price cocktails. Or, on Fridays, kick-start your weekend with a fancy bottle of prosecco for £18.

9) You'll find all kinds of guests here: families, couples, groups of mates, and hotel guests from next door. You're welcomed as family, and speaking to Amit, our waiter, was like greeting a fond family member; so make yourself at home!

10) This may not be the place to impress with the best, but if a relaxed atmosphere, a good chat and a steak are what you're after, this is it.
