London Eating. London Drinking. London Clubbing. Basically things to do in London. Free things. Fun things. Quirky things. This is what I do. This is what I will write about. This is my London blog.
I place things on the list, cross them off the list, and then replace them with more new things on the list. Join me in my crossing off fetish.
As has been noted before, I am willing to travel for food
that has potential. So when I saw Earl’s cheesesteaks had a regular base at
Liverpool Street I knew I’d have to give up a lunch hour to get over there and
try them out.
When I arrived they offered me a loyalty card and seemed a
little taken aback when I said I would probably not be returning too often
because I work in St Paul’s and had only come down to try them!
Unlike Liberty Cheesesteaks they make no claim to
authenticity, they’re just doing a cheesesteak the way they see fit. And let’s
face it, you can’t go too far wrong with meat and cheese. Earl’s use bavette
steak and provolone (a classic melty cheese) and give it a twist with pickled
chillies and their own sauce. At first bite I was worried it would be a little
dry but I soon got a mouthful of sauce which did its job. Towards the end I had
a bit of meat that was a little gristly but mostly it was nice and tender. So
it was a decent sandwich but I don’t know that I would use my precious 60
minutes in order to have it again.
However. While I was there I perused the
rest of the menu and my God, When Mac Pulled Pork looks like something special.
It’s pulled pork with a deep friend mac and cheese patty and scotch bonnet
sauce. I have to have it. So, Earl’s, I will be back!
