Ello Guv’nor! The place have y’all been?? (and by y’all i imply we’all) 😛 Solely God is aware of what’s taken us so lengthy to go to The Mad Sailors. I imply, we’ve visited just about each different spot from The Black Gap Group PLUS this place serves up a lot that’s proper down my alley. So we lastly received our plates of meat transferring all the way in which to Haji Lane so let’s make this rely!
So The Mad Sailors focuses on churning out some jolly good British grub. We’re speaking about some classics like Bangers & Mash, Fish & Chippies and some stunning twists right here and there.
I do know plenty of you might be all in regards to the Fish & Chips however a Sunday Roast is definitely about as British because it will get on the subject of a basic. It’s received all the pieces you want on one plate!
A wholesome minimize of Roast Beef comes with all of the trimmings together with Mushy Peas, carrots, mushrooms and potatoes. Spherical all the pieces up with the long-lasting must-have Yorkshire Pudding – which is definitely not a candy pudding as some might count on however extra like a… hmm.. I’m gonna name it the equal to a bun/pastry hybrid 😛
The meat was tender and attractive (it’s a Roast Beef and never a steak so don’t ask me about doneness okay) particularly with that savoury Worcestershire-ish brown sauce. There’s a lot to take pleasure in with each the meat and the Yorkshire Pudding.
All the things goes nice collectively and you may most likely wipe this entire factor out alone in case you’re actually hungry. However, don’t be shy to share lah okay then can order extra stuff on the aspect LOL
Okay so I can’t put it off anymore – right here’s what you’ve all been ready for. The Fish & Chips!
Moreover the basic Fish & Chips, they’ve really received just a few completely different variations to select from on the menu at The Mad Sailors (5 really and that’s simply the fried selection!)
Try their Masala Fish & Chips which marries each East & West (like The Kumars at No. 42).
You get some battered Dory that’s really received a Masala Spice batter after which been given the #DeepFriedGoodness remedy. Throw in some hand-cut potato chips (that is the legit recent one not the frozen-from-a-bag sort) too. However that’s the place issues begin to get slightly completely different.
As a substitute of a salad, you get some pickled vegetable aka Achar n the aspect. However the actual kicker right here is the Masala Mint Chutney that’s (very artistically) swished onto and served in your plate. Daring flavours abound that really actually go properly with the fish! A good selection in case you’re searching for a distinct imaginative and prescient to your basic Fish & Chips 😀
And talking of various…
In the event you like SPICY then you definitely MUST order the Sambal Fish & Chips! ?
Battered and deep-fried Dory ?
Traditional hand-cut chips ?
SPICY SAMBAL ???
You know the way some sambals look ‘fierce’ however will not be that spicy proper… Properly this one is LEGIT! No mucking about at The Mad Sailors apparently as a result of they imply enterprise with their sambal! They even give some Achar and yoghurt-y sauce on the aspect to assist cool you down lah LOL In the event you’re hantu chili then this one will probably be good for you!
After all, in case you nonetheless need a few of the good ol’ original type, they’ve that too!
A basic serving of batter-fried Dory fillets with chips, salad and creamy Tartar sauce! For me, I’d personally spring slightly additional for the Cod Fish & Chips ($18.90). Sweeter and firmer flesh with the Cod if y’know what I’m saying 😀
I child you not – the Cheeky Git is formally my most favouritest dish on the menu at The Mad Sailors!
A brilliant tender cheek of beef that’s been braised for who is aware of how lengthy however it’s simply amazeballs. Served with some veggies on the aspect and a mattress of mash (which may have been a bit smoother now that I give it some thought) however the star is clearly that beef!
PS at $21.90 – that’s a steal, kiddies! Value each penny and extra.
I noticed PLENTY of individuals posting about this dish on their IG not too long ago. Looks as if the Laksa Pesto Pasta is an enormous hit!
The Laksa flavour is daring and packs a punch right here. You possibly can thank the Pesto that’s had Laksa paste and spices infused into it therefore the sedap outcome. Throw in some prawns and clams alongside along with your Linguine and also you’re all set! In the event you love your pasta however at all times gotta have that Asian flavour, get this.
Oh, my egg runneth over…
However significantly – this was (surprisingly) my favorite dish of the night time. Whenever you hear Duck Pasta, you’ll most likely consider (smoked) duck atop some tomato-based pasta am I proper or am I proper? So when it stated, ‘Carbonara’ on the menu, I used to be intrigued!
When the dish arrived, I used to be like “The place the duck is the duck?“. After which I discovered after just a few bites ? There was no smoked duck right here… It was precise duck meat that had been cooked, finely shredded after which mixed-in to the pasta and sauce! AND IT WAS SEDAP GILER! There was no gamey flavour in any respect (in case you’re nervous about that) and also you do get to take pleasure in a slight textural distinction with every chew because of the duck.
In the event you love Carbonara, then it is a should strive. In the event you love duck, then it is a MUST TRY!
And final however not least for our Pasta course, we tried the Hunky Dory Aglio Olio. (To keep away from confusion, I say first ah – there’s NO Dory on this dish LOL) 😛
A basic Aglio Olio has pasta, garlic olive oil and slightly chili for positive. All checked and current right here! As a bonus, they throw in some prawns and mushrooms for good measure too. High that each one off with a copious quantity of Parmesan cheese that’s been shaved instantly from heaven onto your plate LOL
The one pasta dish we didn’t strive (as a result of a lot meals already!) was the Queen Vic Pink which is a tomato-base pasta with Garlic & Herb Sausages. However you possibly can take pleasure in these sausages in one other dish –
It’s an actual sausage fest right here (oi!) at The Mad Sailors and a real British basic is the Bangers & Mash!
I’ve to say that the Garlic & Herb Sausages had been DELICIOUS! It’s beef sausages by the way in which so that you’re assured a full-flavoured kick right here together with that savoury brown onion gravy. Mushy Peas and Slaw on the aspect as you take pleasure in all the pieces with a well-pureed mattress of Mashed Potatoes. Really fairly shiok ah! I’m really yearning for it as I sort this out 😛
Oh blimey! What a burger that is being! (Did anybody else get that reference?)
The Goodness Gracious Me boasts a fried hen thigh with a house-made yoghurt sauce, onions, tomatoes and a Tikka Masala sauce all in between a pair of Brioche buns. In the event you’re searching for a burger to fill you up, that is most positively being it! Por favor?
On the menu at The Mad Sailors, there are literally loads of different dishes I actually wanna strive. The Traditional Chip Butty (HP sauce FTW) and the Spiced Scotch Egg are prime of the record. Even their Snacks menu is in depth doing little to cease me from drooling.
I assumed I’d begin the Snack part with some seafood!
Fairly positive that Creamy White Mussels are huge on plenty of peoples’ record for starters. Recent Blue Mussels are cooked in a cream sauce and there’s some bread on the aspect for mopping up that sauce. Sharp-tongued diners will detect a slight tart-ness within the sauce courtesy of some vinegar!
In the event you’re searching for a lighter munch, the Crikey Crab needs to be proper up your alley. Mini Crabs deep fried and served with a house-made Tartar sauce? Signal me up sideways! (Geddit? Sideways. Cos it’s crab. Pfft oh by no means thoughts.)
The Mad Poutine, as you possibly can most likely inform by the identify, has A LOT occurring! 😛 The truth is, it’s listed within the Snacks part however may very properly deserve a spot on the Mains aspect of the menu!
Chips are utterly doused in a particular sambal gravy and mint chutney plus some fried onions and garlic for good measure. Undoubtedly a really Anglo-Indian affect right here and if I needed to describe it in a single phrase, it’s be – BOLD!
Anyhow, I’ve saved one of the best for final! 😀
O superb Marmite! ❤❤❤
Okay lah I do know that that is an acquired style and never lots of you might be followers (but). The truth is, numerous you’ve gotten instructed me you haven’t even tried this wonderful factor referred to as Marmite 😛
Properly, this may really be place so that you can begin! They go straightforward on the Marmite right here (so that you don’t get scared off LOL). Plus you get hints of honey and smokey flavours because of the grill. A great snack no much less. But when there’s Marmite in it, you may be positive we’re gonna order it 😀
Wash all of it down with some refreshing drinks. Butterbeer is at all times a sensible choice! Sodas, Smooshies, Espresso – you identify it, they’ve received it. Oh! Maybe a pleasant cuppa tea for ya, luv? 😛
REGRET – not ordering the Fried Mars Bar (or any of the desserts lah!) LOL oh properly subsequent time lah like that! And in case you’re nervous in regards to the children, don’t! They’ve received children’ meals on the menu too okay!
The Mad Sailors is certainly a spot to go to with the gang for nice grub and nice firm. Plus, it’s in the midst of Haji Lane in order that’s an enormous plus already. Simply bear in mind to say good day to the pleasant Marmite Woman okay! (Spot her within the picture under!)
