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