How Much?

Hipster seafood is surprisingly hard to come by in London. Odd for a city where small, stripped back restaurants with low lighting and 5 item menus exist in great abundance for every other kind of food.

So, CLAW, a little outpost nestled just off Carnaby street, is here to solve our woes. Billing itself as a “celebration of the British coastline”, this joint specialises in crab, from light and fluffy beignets and chips doused in meaty crab mayonnaise. Sadly, the main event, crab claws with garlic and lime butter, were sold out when we got there but the word on the street is that they’re absolutely brilliant – get in early!

The menu is split up into 4 sections – crab, land, sea and plant, so there’s still plenty of room for experimentation. We had some pork stuffed squid – an odd combination whose flavour didn’t quite merit the audacity it must have taken to put the two things together, and some markedly better fish fingers.
