No, we hadn’t been to Brockley before either, but we highly recommend venturing south down the gingerline to sample the delights this neighbourhood restaurant has to offer.
We warmed ourselves up with a pear and vanilla daiquiri which complimented the smoked salmon and avocado amuse bouche we received on arrival. The market-driven, British-fusion menu was concise but offered a variety of flavours, all of which tempted!
To start we recommend the scallops – cooked to perfection, sweet, tender and so fresh – followed by the beetroot ravioli. Not only was it stunningly beautiful on the plate, adorned with jewel-like baby beets, the pasta was al dente and the puree was earthy and unctuous.
Oh and make sure you try the lemon curd for dessert. The zingy sharpness refreshed the palate after the pork neck and kohlrabi we also had.
Our waiter was attentive, chef Zsolt’s attention to detail was obvious and the surroundings were casual and cozy. If you’re looking for somewhere to brunch, lunch or dinner, Noak SE4 will leave you feeling like you’ve had a nice warm cuddle from a new best friend.
