NOTE: Flavour Bastard has now closed.
Would a rose by any other name not smell as sweet?
Probably not if you called them “flavour bastards”.
So it’s lucky that this Soho restaurant really does deliver some sweet-smelling food, because that name might guarantee publicity (bazinga!) but maybe not punters… In fairness to the proprietors – chef Pratap Chahal, an alumnus of Cinnamon Club, Claridges, etc. and restauranteur Vic Singh – the name isn’t all gimmick, it’s also referring to the “cuisine agnostic” approach they take to the menu here, unwed to any particular culinary style or tradition.
That free-roaming approach to the dishes yields a menu divided up into tiny, small, and large plates. You can size them all up/down according to your appetite, and expect an array of deliberately unauthentic dishes including white lentil, chorizo and pecorino doughnuts; miso and mango glazed aubergine with peanut crumble; tandoori fried chicken; and steak tartare with tamarind, chilli and garlic.
Which all marry well together.
