The Street Photographer: Sardine Tin

Like French sister restaurant Piaf, Sardine Tin at South Bank is seductively European in its cuisine and relaxing atmosphere. Best enjoyed pre-sunset with a chilled glass of French sauvignon blanc, unwind with gastronome pleasure in this open-air tapas bar. With a new menu every eight weeks, a visit to Sardine Tin is ever-fresh, with the share plates and light meals curated to the available seasonal produce. Jams and relishes are made in house, adding a flavoursome twist to meals. Try the warm olives and Pumpkin and Pinenut Arancini to start, followed by the softest of gnocchi, and the Buche d’affinois cheese with sweet quince paste to close, all the while people-watching, grazing and savouring this humble yet gourmet experience in the company of friends. Check out Sardine Tin on The Street Photographer. more

With dishes like the Black Angus Wagyu Beef Carpaccio with Shallot Vinaigrette, Tuna Mayonnaise, Quail Eggs, Baby Capers and Duck Fat Potato Chips followed by the Anisette of Wild Rabbit with Braised Rabbit Leg Terrine, Rabbit Loin, Foie Gras, Brioche, Pumpkin Puree, Oyster Mushroom and Maderia Jus, you’ll… more

Pop in for Canvas-worthy cocktails from 3:00 pm on Saturday, meet Kevin the taxidermy peasant and marvel at the cool prints, old bottles and bizarre knick knacks, while sampling the creative flavour fusions and twists on homestyle, family-favourite dinners.
