Barnyard London Chicken Wings

Our Rating

Barnyard was one of the top “must try” restaurants on my list but since it doesn’t accept bookings, I knew never to dare on a weekend. I have also been meaning to try Dabbous (http://www.dabbous.co.uk/), Barnyard’s older, richer and famous brother restaurant but that will happen hopefully sometime soon. Monday night+rainy (no, it doesn’t rain every day in London believe it or not) = perfect opportunity to try hot new restaurants. Stewart’s good friend from Princeton (yeah, I married up I know…) Evan was in town and we started the night at London Cocktail Club (http://www.londoncocktailclub.co.uk/goodge-st-gin-palace). Their happy hour and two for one drinks certainly helped open our appetites for some meaty and hearty rainy weather appropriate food. Barnyard was perfect for it. The wait was about 10 minutes and flew by as the very enthusiastic bartender asked if we were boozing and enthusiastically explained all the drinks .

What we ate:

Crispy chicken wings with smoked paprika: I tried to persuade my husband not to order it, claiming that we shouldn’t order wings when having dinner with a friend who lives in NY and should order more British foods……of course it didn’t work. The wings were delicious and made your fingers sticky and messy like they are supposed to. They also had a nice citrusy taste that balanced the oily rub well. The cornbread side we ordered (suggested by the waiter) was perfect to mop all the drippings.

Cornbread: key element to be consumed with the chicken. Very tasty, moist and with good ratio of crispy to soft bites around the edges.

Homemade sausage roll with piccalilli: We saw this dish being paraded around the dining room and had to have it! We almost ordered two portions but there were too many other things on the menu we wanted to try. The dough was flaky and baked to perfection and the sausage was tender and tasty. The piccalilli (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Piccalilliwas not remarkable in any way and too pickled…..but I guess its supposed to be and I am not a huge pickles fan.

Roast suckling pig with celeriac and caraway: This pork skin should be mass produced, bagged and sold for a lot of money! The pork was succulent and flavorful and not too fatty and the skin on top was sheer perfection, crispy, porky, amazing. MUST ORDER!! The celeriac with caraway is on the side, in a little dish and is a bit creamy and nice. But unnecessary as all the focus should be on the pig.

Barbecued grain-fed short rib: very tasty, perfectly cooked and tender. The issue we had is we ordered it at the same time as the pork (I suggest ordering in stages as the food comes very fast and if you order all at once, you may be done in 20 minutes) and the pork was better. Still very tasty, not overly fatty like some short ribs can get.

Broken eggs with mushrooms, garlic and parsley: this was our least favorite dish but could be easily improved. The texture was like an egg and mushroom chunky soup but the egg whites seemed undercooked which made me ask the waited if they were too raw (no-according to him). If the dish was served with toast (waiter said they don’t have toast apart from lardo toast…..so we ordered lardo toast with no lardo) to soak all the juices. If the dish was less soupy it would be great as the mushrooms were abundant and very flavorful. The egg was just not compelling the way it was cooked and mixed in.

Charred broccoli: I am a broccoli addict and this one was fantastic. Charred, flavorful, al-dente and with a tasty creamy drizzle on top.

Popcorn ice cream with smoked fudge sauce: this was fantastic and even forced my husband to break his recent “no dessert” rule. Soft serve pocorn ice cream, with several caramelized pocorns around the perimeter and served with a little cup of the sauce. We imagined chocolate fudge but it was closer to a dark caramel, with a strong smoked flavor that made it exciting, complex and new (desserts have become a bit repetitive….this one is great).

Barnyard London delicious popcorn ice cream

In Sum: casual and reasonably priced with tasty food (£66 for three of us, but just one cocktail and one glass of wine as we had happy hour pre-dinner). We would pop in if we were in the hood but wouldn’t wait hours for it (seems like lines can be very long on weekends)
