A Delicious Fish Lunch at The World’s End Market

As a food blogger I’m often stuffing my face with afternoon tea, tasting menus and cocktails so the opportunity to review healthy food is always welcome especially when it’s delicious fresh fish.

The World’s End Market is located on the eternally stylish King’s Road in the building that once housed the historic pub The World’s End Distillery.

The former gin-palace has been beautifully refitted with a gorgeous wooden bar, bright white tiles, soft teal leather and bright brass lamps.
The overall feel is super chic whilst still being casual and welcoming with a busy open kitchen at the back and vibrant fresh ingredients on display.

Being located fairly far up the King’s Road and away from Sloane Square, I can imagine it would make a great local restaurant, staff are warm and friendly and there’s a relaxed bar area and outdoor seating.

We started with a glass of sparkling wine from Chapel Down each; if you’ve never heard of the company, they are the UK’s leading wine producer and are based in Kent. The vineyard use innovative techniques to produce the most beautiful tasting wine and I love the crisp, dry flavour of their bubbly!

The menu at The World’s End is nearly all fish but there is a whole burger menu including interesting combinations such a the crayfish burger and a veggie truffle burger made up of mixed mushrooms. We decided to stick with the lighter fish options and opted to share two raw starters:

A beautifully fresh tuna tartare cured with lemon and infused with ginger, jalapeno chilli and coriander dressing, I loved the spicy aromatic Asian flavour running through the dish and paired with finely chopped fresh fish, this was a perfect tartare for me.

We also chose the seabass tartare with capers and gherkins, topped with a perfectly poached egg. The salty capers really enhanced the flavour of the simply prepared fish and was altogether an ideal combination.

Mr Silver also tried the fish soup which I expected to be creamy but I was pleased to see it was lighter and healthier, with delicious hunks of seafood and comforting crisp fingers of toasted olive oil bread.
From a large selection of fish I chose the daily special, a whole cooked sea bass. Now, this is my absolute favourite thing ever so I very fussy about the preparation but I loved the dish at The World’s End. The fish was very simply chargrilled but it was cooked perfectly so that the oily flesh flaked apart beautifully and there was no need to add salt or pepper, the seasoning was just right.

A side of grilled vegetables was beautifully vibrant in colour and the dish had the perfect bite.

Lemon sole and chips was Mr Silver’s choice and we enjoyed his dish just as much as mine. I loved the slightly smokey flavour from the charcoal grill.

Though the red velvet cake and the hazelnut cheese cake on the dessert menu looked very tempting I stuck with my good intentions!

Having visited many London fish restaurants in my time, I can definitely put World’s End Market on my list of favourites. I love the unpretentious environment and simple yet perfectly prepared fish…plus I love seeing Chapel Down on a menu anywhere!
