These are some pretty Instafamous onion rings so it was only right that I put them to the Onion Rings Rated test.
Number of Rings: 5 (large)
Cost per ring: 70p
Firstly let’s talk about Meat Liquor itself. I had to queue for 20 minutes outside before we were even let into the restaurant and then we has a further 20 min wait in the bar area. This place serves fantastic dirty food and is a hot spot on a Saturday night so be prepared to queue. This restaurant is an experience let’s say. It’s very dark inside like a nightclub (check the photo below) and has loud music to match.
We each had a cocktail called “GAME OVER” which is so strong that it is limited to two per person! The cocktails are London prices, £10.50 seemed like a good deal for vodka, gin, rum, tequila, triple sec, pisang ambon and absinthe all in one hit!
Getting down to the oniony business now: The menu starts off with a bold claim in describing the rings as “Big and Fluffy”. I can officially confirm that these claims were not unfounded.
I was served with 5 almost comically large rings which were almost an inch thick/tall as well as having a large diameter. This made it possible to truly enjoy the perfectly cooked onion which lay within. It was just one thick ring inside and it was lovely. So juicy.I would describe as fluffy yes because they were certainly not crunchy. The texture was fantastic and also very flavoursome. Finally somewhere that doesn’t scrimp on salt! Scrumptious!
One of the greats.
