Cay Tre Hoxton, Old Street, London
This week we had our agency away day, and whilst I lasted as long as I could with the drinks courtesy of the company tab (that’s a reasonable while, mind you) the hunger eventually came into play. There’s only so long fries can delay an inevitable, and insatiable appetite. Cay Tre was around the corner and the crowd level was appropriate and suggested the fare was fair. The queueing and service were crappy but the food came soon enough and I enjoyed it.
I had the Com suon (£11.95) which consisted of a charcoaled pork steak, lemongrass, five spice honey glaze, daikon and fried egg over steamed rice. The pork was made of good quality and tasty for the most part, I could have done with richer flavours and more char on the meat. Nothing too exciting or different on the rest of the plate but also nothing being a let down. So solid effort and would be up to try a lot more of the menu.
