People who work around Soho are spoilt for choice when it comes to lunch and dinner time. Taking advantage of working in Soho I noticed Flat Iron. A small steak joint selling flat iron steak as the name would suggest. We strolled down one lunchtime and decided to indulge. On arrival we were presented with a mug of popcorn. The cutlery also resembled a mini meat cleaver which was a bit quirky.
The menu consists of flat iron steak and a special which was beef brisket on that particular day. Set on the steak before visiting it was advised to have it served medium rare which is how I usually prefer it anyway. A range of sauces were available and I decided on the peppercorn sauce. The steak was served on a stone slab and certainly looked inpressive, juicy and pink as it should be. The steak certainly lived up to the taste test, wonderfully seasoned and tender. I dread the usual lunchtime sandwich after having this.
Being a lunchtime treat we shared a portion of chips. Whilst the steak was great value at £10 we only realised the accompanying side salad mentioned on the menu was forgotten about. The chips could be better but it was all about the steak.
