In a joint collaboation betwen the The World’s End Market and the meat connoisseur himself, José Gordónis, Chelsea is now the home of what they call the world’s best steak. Jose is originally from the Spanish town of Leon and owns his own restaurant El Capricho Proprieto, known of course for its amazing steaks. Needless the say, the steaks found at The World’s End Market are from Spain and are served with love. World’s End Market itself is a beautiful, modern and elegant pub located on King’s Road. It had always been one of my favorite spots to have a drink in but I had never tried the food before.
I popped by to try the new set menu by José Gordónis. For starters we had ox tartare and entrecote carpaccio. The carpaccio is matured for 180 days in high-quality Spanish olive oil and you can really taste the richness of the olive oil as well as the meat. The slices were so thinly cut and the sea salt just completed the dish, it was incredible! The tartare tasted so fresh with lots of spices and herbs, and the texture was perfect. If I would have left my dinner at this point I would have still been happy, because that’s how content I was with both starters.
Now on to the main courses. We tried both the El Capricho Ox Burger and the Vacio De Buey Ox Steak. The steak was ordered medium rare and was served with salad and bread. The flavour of the steak itself was so on point that they don’t even have sauces on the menu. Of course these are available upon request.
The first thing we noticed was the quality of meat in both the burger as well as the steak. The meat is dry-aged for at least 90 days to ensure the most flavoursome finish. It was a lovely steak, however not the absolute best I’ve had. As for the burger, due to the type of solid high quality meat, the patty texture wasn’t as soft and juicy as I like my burgers. The highlight of the burger was actually the chips! The chips were by far the nicest I’ve ever tried. So perfectly crispy, covered in truffle oil and Parmesan.
Last but definitely not least was the chocolate fondant. I loved the fondant. It was served fresh and warm with rich chocolate sauce on the inside. What’s a fondant without a bit of vanilla ice cream?
I’m glad I finally got to try the food at The World’s End Market and I was not disappointed. It’s a lovely choice for King’s Road and has a nice homely atmosphere to go along with it. I definitely recommend to pop by.
