But prepare to fork out for such a high grade product, with a 400g rib-eye costing £34 alone.This Moscow-based restaurant group are also behind recently launched Zelman Meats in Soho, with a focus on great value beef, showcasing the same level of bovine craftsmanship. They currently do a smoked short rib sandwich with pickled red cabbage and ‘Holy F*ck’ mayo for £6.50. Add a side of triple cooked chips for £4.50, and you have a meal with some of the best beef in town, plus change from £15. Hoppers vs. GymkhanaThe dark oak wood panelling and cut glass lamps of highly acclaimed Gymkhana in London’s prestigious Mayfair, is a failsafe for a terrific Indian meal. With a coveted Michelin star, the price point reflects the pedigree of kitchen; meat mains range from £10 to £38, and a 7-course tasting menu is £70.But the same talented restaurateurs behind Gymkhana and sister restaurant Trishna (the Sethi family), have recently brought Hoppers to Soho. Think southern Indian and Sri Lankan starters from £4 – £7, dosas and hoppers (fermented rice pancakes) ranging from £1.50 – £3, and curries at £5 – £6. Expect the same assured cooking associated with this respected family name, but with far more pocket-friendly prices. last_img
