We’ve just returned from our first ‘proper’ visit to Applebee’s restaurant at Borough Market (previously we had only purchased fresh fish to prepare at home). We’ve always liked the friendly, pleasant vibe of the place and the truly amazing quality of the produce.
We got seated outside on the pedestrianised street. After short deliberation Ms B opted for fillet of sea bass with crushed new potatoes, bacon, and an olive oil velouté (£23.50) and I went for the mixed grill (£22.45), a selection of the catch of the day served with three dips and a rocket and tomato salad), plus an extra side of chips (£4).
Our waiter was super-friendly and chatty (in a good, polite way, of course) and it turned out that he’s a member of the family of the owners, who have run this gem ever since they established it as a mere fish shop twenty years ago.
The food arrived quickly and we immediately tucked our teeth into the lovely food. The portions were both rather large, too. Ideal for two hungry folks after a long day in the office. I was particularly impressed by the juicy giant prawn and the hake.
We will definitely be back again very soon. 5 out of 5 in our book. Tip to the hat.
