For starters we experienced some unusual and exciting dishes. The thinly sliced meat is “Ox Tongue” that has been slow cooked for 72 hours and then charcoal grilled and served with mini gherkins and toasted bread crisps. In all honesty, we were apprehensive to try it but it was amazing. The “Steak Tartar” was simply divine, seasoned impeccably and bursting with flavour. – Recommended
The “Premium Ox Fillet” steak arrived with a hypnotising aroma and had a smokey, caramelised char, with a hint of crispness, whilst being simply seasoned. The steak was recommended to us to be prepared rare, which I nervously agreed to. I’m adventurous, but even I’m not keen on having my steak over flowing with myoglobin juices (this is sometimes mistaken for blood). However, the steak was effervescently juicy, without being watery or chewy. That was due to the meat being dry-aged, which allowed it to remain succulent and flavoursome. – Recommended
The “Premium Ox Burger” was sensational. Matured for 100 days and prepared medium, it was undoubtedly the best burger I have tried in a while. The magnificently sweet onion jam along with the smoky Applewood cheese was stunning. – Highly Recommended
The “Duo of Chocolate Mousse” was pure decadence and the dark chocolate sauce was extremely rich. – Recommended
The “Hazelnut & Caramel Cheesecake” was delicious and surprisingly not too sweet. – Recommended
The World’s End Market, without-a-question delivers a unique dining experience for the Halal community, due to the cuts, calibre and quality of meats that is on offer.
So if you are feeling adventurous and want to try some really exotic proteins, then you are in for a treat at The World’s End Market.
