CAU Kingston – 9th September 2016

I was recommended this steakhouse on my Onion Rings Rated Instagram (which you can find here!)

Ben and I had a lovely meal here and he even described his meal as “the best steak of 2016 so far”.  Seriously bold claims.

THE STATS

Number of Rings: 6
Cost: £2.95
Cost per ring: 49p

Wow these are not your ordinary onion rings, they are strangely floppy but not even necessarily in a bad soggy way. They are so flexible. I would definitely describe these as gourmet, they for sure were made from scratch which is always a good sign.

The batter had red flecks in it which I’m pretty sure were chilli flakes – although don’t fear spice haters these were no where near the flame power even of Nando’s lemon and herb (you wusses). The chilli flakes are very subtle and make these rings particularly tasty and unique. I can’t quite put my finger on the flavour exactly but it’s somewhere in between sage and onion stuffing and a Chinese vegetable spring roll.

The onion itself was plain and not very sweet at all and I found that most of the flavour was coming from the batter.

Grease level approved: Not at all greasy but not at all dry.

Even Ben liked these onion rings and he is not what I would describe as an onion ring fan.

Summary

Very nice.  A great take on onion rings but they are not the classic. 

Overall Rating: 9/10
