Fat cheeks sells itself on combining tasty dishes, musical acts (opera-singing waitresses from time to time) and good old fashioned fun. This time, the’cheeky little pop up’ will hit The Shop in Kensal Rise for Easter Sunday where there’ll be three sittings – 1.30pm, 4pm & 6.30pm – all with the same four course menu, which will bring back the traditional Sunday lunch with a twist.
There’ll be a starter of lamb and an ‘edible garden’ of vegetables and foraged spring flowers (violets, gerberas & cow parsley in edible soil). Then there’s a whole roasted chicken on a platter from cheek to tail with all the classic roast trimmings. Next there’s a sensory palate cleanser of mango egg, finishing with a classic patisserie dessert.
