Pickles

The Palomino, on Bath Street, is on my regular route through the city. I’ve walked past it on many occasions, but today was the day to pay it a visit for a spot of late lunch.

I was joined by Tim, a friend of long standing with whom I’ve just started working again.

Specialising in meaty delights, the place has a smart steakhouse look and feel to it. We sat at a generously appointed booth and contemplated both the a la carte and express lunch menus.

We both settled upon trying one of their meaty buns, with Tim opting for the pork while I chose the beef brisket. I added a starter of deep fried pickles with blue cheese sauce.

Items promptly arrived with a headily meaty aroma. I started with the pickles which were good but a little lacking in crunchy crispness. The blue cheese sauce was good, but slightly too polite for my tastes.

The sandwiches were rather better, with good hearty portions and a tasty brioche bun. Mine was a gloriously messy eat, which I really enjoyed.

So overall, the Palomino is doing good work. In a city that’s gone meat mad, it’s continuing the theme rather than redefining the genre, but it still puts “burger corner’s” efforts to shame. I enjoyed both the welcome and the brisket, so I’d be happy to visit again.
