UPDATED SEASONAL MENU AT MEGARO EATERY
<< Back to Blog

We’ve just updated our seasonal menu at The Megaro Eatery here in King’s Cross.

We work hard to keep our menu fresh, always seeking the best seasonal produce from around the UK to bring you some of the very best food in King’s Cross. We’ve just updated our menu with some new dishes.

Fowey mussels are cooked in a Ginger Pig cider and cream sauce, available as a starter or main. The main is served with our triple cooked chips for a filling lunch.

 

Our blue mussels are from Fowey on the Cornish coast and are are classed as the most sustainable to eat by the Marine Conservation Society. They also happen to be delicious, being what we consider to be the very best estuarine farmed mussels available.

According to the Cornwall Seafood Guide: “Blue mussels are found naturally growing all around Cornwall’s coast. There are now several companies farming mussels in Cornwall’s estuaries and bays. This practice is very environmentally friendly as the mussels grow naturally, feeding on passing plankton. Unlike fish farming where large amounts of feed is used and polluting waste is created mussels have a minimal impact and the farms actually create sheltered habitat for other species. Always ask for Cornish farmed mussels.”

Another new starter is our treacle cured Loch Duart salmon. The use of this classic British black treacle, made from molasses, brings some unusual, slightly bitter flavours which work in harmony with the salmon and the earthy tones of the pickled beetroot. The dill cream brings a further texture and a tangy lift.

Gressingham duck breast is served with a fig compote, glazed baby carrots, Swiss chard and an incredible chicken liver parfait. The tender duck breast is perfectly complemented by the tangy fruit compote. The parfait is extremely light though with intense flavour, which adds a deeper dimension to the dish. Highly recommended.

All of our dishes can be paired with some amazing wines from our extensive wine list. Selected carefully by our expert sommelier Richard Weiss, the wine list features many wonderful varieties. We offer a large number of Biodynamic wines, part of our ongoing commitment to supporting organic farming and viticulture. Our staff will be happy to advise you on pairings.

<< Back to Blog

Please note: This menu is seasonal and is now unavailable as of 7/09/17.

At our Megaro Eatery here in King’s Cross, we just launched our special native lobster menu.

As always, we have a sharp focus on the integrity of our ingredients. We source the freshest and finest native lobsters, harvested from the waters of the British Isles.

Our native lobster menu offers three glorious courses for just £24.50, a summertime taste of the British coast in the heart of the city.

  • Native lobster home-made tagliatelle, with a lobster bisque foam
  • Half native lobster, cooked on the Josper grill, served with triple cooked chips, Choron sauce and young leaves
  • Roasted figs in port, with fig leaf ice cream

 

Lobster tagliatelle at Megaro Eatery King's Cross

We’re very proud of our home-made pasta, and this tagliatelle is no exception. Served with tender pieces of native lobster, peppers and our home-made lobster bisque foam, it makes a fantastic starter.

 

Cooking the lobster on our Josper grill enhances the flavour, and brings some fabulous barbecue notes to the dish. Truly special. The Choron sauce, a Bearnaise sauce with tomato puree and diced tomato, is almost too delicious.

The grilled figs in port rounds off the menu, with the delicate fig leaf ice cream cleansing the palate.

To book, please call us on 020 7843 2221 or book online here.

<< Back to Blog

We’re no strangers to taking photos of our food here at Megaro Eatery, or indeed cocktails at the Megaro Bar for that matter. And we see lots of you doing the same. Social media, especially Instagram, is full of food, bursting at the seams in fact.

It’s a little strange, but then again it’s great to see what new places are serving up, and what old favourites have cooked up to keep us coming back. Like our steaks: people just keep coming back for them, over and over. You can never have too many pictures of your steak it seems.

During your stay with us in King’s Cross at the The California Hotel or the  Megaro Hotel we’ve a recommendation:  ‘Food For Being Looked At’, a new small exhibition a The Photographers’ Gallery just off Oxford Street. The exhibition examines the phenomenon and you can read more here, including some handy food photo tips. The exhibition runs until October 8th, alongside a permanent collection as well as other temporary exhibits.

We’d also invite you to take pictures of our food while your dining with us, naturally!
