Game on! Enjoy a carnivore feast as pop-up restaurant Struie Road returns
It’s already made quite an impression on the game-ing community last time it ran… and no I’m not talking about fans of consoles, I mean the wild, carnivorous kind of game. After a break this summer, the Wild Game Go are returning with their monthly pop-up restaurant Struie Road. Named after one of Britain’s most remote places and home to top produce, which also happens to be where WGC founder Andy Waugh hails from.
Just in time for the autumn game season, Struie Road will offer an eight-course tasting menu featuring wild treats from Scotland when it returns from September. The main attraction will be the Grouse dish, which will be served on a Forest Floor salad, using Foraged Mushrooms, Dried Cranberries and a Pine and Oat Crumble. Two new dishes on the menu for the new season will be Pickled Herring and Wild Boar Chipirones.
Old favourites previous diners may recognise are also returning; the Surf and Turf, slow cooked Ribs and Oysters, the Venison Chateaubriand and seasonal Ripe Cheese and Hokey Pokey Shards. The dishes will be accompanied by a recommend wine list, to complement the flavours.
The Wild Game Co. was established by Waugh back in 2010. A street food concept, it uses high quality meat from his family’s butchery business just outside Inverness. Wild Game Co. has already received many accolades, including winning Young British Foodies Street Food Award 2012-2013, on Evening Standard’s Top 5 Places to Eat Game in London and a shortlisted finalist for BBC’s Food and Farming Awards 2012.
- Struie Road is open for diners on Friday 26th September, Friday 17th October, Friday 21st November and Friday 5th December 2014, but seats must be booked in advance. It takes place at Workshop Coffee Co., 27 Clerkenwell Road, EC1M 5RN. Nearest tube/train: Farringdon. Tickets: £49 per person including complimentary cocktail on arrival, from 7pm. To book, visit Design My Night, or for more information, check out the Wild Game Co website.
