While my boyfriend and I were hungrily wandering around Soho we stumbled across a cracking burger and hot dog restaurant called Top Dog. It was such a lovely place, had a great vibe, it was really reasonably priced and of course they did onion rings.
We’re definitely going back.
Number of Rings: 8
Cost per ring: 49p
Wow! These onion rings were something else. We may have found the holy grail of onion rings and it’s only the second review.
These were not frozen onion rings and were not at all stodgy. If you look inside you can see the onion is intact and separate from the batter and this indicates the low stodge level before you even taste it. The crunch of the batter was extremely satisfying was followed by a top notch juiciness level of inner onion. It was the perfect balance.
They were sliced very thin which I thought was interesting. Luckily this did not negatively affect the juiciness of the inside onion, in fact it made each ring the perfect size.
Although I have to admit these rings were a bit greasy, this is the only fault I could find. They could have done with sitting on a bit of kitchen roll when they came out of pan to soak it up. The inevitable greasiness was counteracted by the onion inside which was unusually sweet.
It was so good, so delicious I wanted to cry. How did they craft these masterpieces? Are the chefs at this restaurant extremely skilled in the art of onion ring creation? Or did they just get lucky? I’ll have to return to see if they can repeat this stellar performance.
These are the onion rings of gods. Amazing. An exceptional onion ring and well worth the money.
