This is what I love about London. Here I am, walking up and down the Essex Road nearly every other weekend. Never once have I stopped by Steve Hatt, the fishmonger. Until Saturday. It was noonish, and the queue was out the door.
Did I buy anything? No. I don’t cook, remember. But the Steve Hatt scallops in particular looked amazing.
Just stopping by the window and then coming home to Google Steve Hatt, I discovered all sorts of neat things.
Like that James Elliott the Butcher right up the street is just as nice. And that I should visit Frank Godfrey the Butcher in Highbury. Not to buy anything to cook, of course. Just to look.
Any other recommendations?
