Located in Barking, East London, Cristina’s is an untraditional casual steakhouse that actually serves halal food. They have an impressive menu offered a range of steaks and classic British food.
I was recommended this place by an Instagram follower and I’ve actually been here twice in that time!
On the first visit, I got a rib eye steak and a chicken and mushroom pie, both were good, in particular, the chicken and mushroom pie was brilliant, but I am going to about something I saw when I was there….
A Sunday Roast for £10!
Beef or Lamb, with Giant Yorkshire pudding, rosemary roast potatoes, honey glazed carrots, roasted butternut squash and ginger basked beetroot with homemade beef gravy.
The accompanying vegetables were very good, the unusual usage of British vegetables like beetroot actually combined really really well with classics like roast potatoes. The beef and lamb both were cooked to a medium with a little pinkness and lightly seasoned. The Beef Gravy really went well with the dish and was welcomed.
Amazing value at only £10 and worth checking out. I got a beef and lamb and both were rather similar.The Sunday Roast is available ONLY on SUNDAY between 12 and 3 pm only and I recommend you make a reservation as its very popular and the place gets busy with large groups.
Here are some pics from my first visit, Rib Eye steak and the brilliant chicken and mushroom pie. The ribeye was the most expensive, to be honest, I wasn’t blown away, I don’t think it was an aged steak, I’d give it a 6.5/10, however, the pie, was an of a high standard and tasted great that gets a 9/10
