Indeed it was their first day of trading anywhere. It was good to see that they seemed in good control of things are were very far from having a first day flap.I was lured in by talk of a smoked venison pastrami slider with pickles, mustard mayo, crispy onions and salad (£5). I ordered that, then listened as the chap told me that they’d made the pastrami themselves from scratch.
I was promptly on my way with item in hand. I sat on a nearby wall to munch. It proved to be satisfyingly good eating, with the pastrami packibg a lovely smoke and the supporting elements working very nicely. I was very impressed.
In fact, I was so impressed that I went back the very next day to try their falafel salad (£5). If anything, it was even better with delicious sprouting broccoli, wonderfully perky harissa dressing and oodles of freshness.
So overall, Rost is starting its journey from a really accomplished and strong position. The dishes I sampled were both outstandingly good. I look forward to many future visits and would recommend you give them a whirl.
