Why to visit Smoke and Salt

Smoke and Salt takes a somewhat restrictive approach to cooking, preparing their food using 'ancient' techniques such as smoking, curing, and preserving. They use British ingredients and prepare them slowly and deliberately - the preparation calendar is divided into days rather than hours. They're then chargrilled and topped with things like truffle ponzu and jalapeno salsa. 

There's a small menu of interesting, and occasionally excellent, dishes at reasonable prices. The menu is constantly changing, but you can expect to eat things like an outstanding chicken leg that was brined for hours before being scorched, or a simple plate of tomatoes that is better than you'd expect. Not everything is perfect - our pork belly was a little overdone, and a few dishes are skippable - but there's enough good going on here to warrant a visit.

Special Tip

Everything is delicious, but the parsnip and flatbread combo with burnt yeast cream, pickled garlic, and apple is out of this world.
