The Winged Ox is the food and drink side of the operation at ultra-hip East End venue St Luke’s. The stage in the converted church is set to be the focus of national attention later in the month when the BBC 6 Music Festival rolls into town. Meanwhile, the kitchen is cooking up its own headliners with a new menu which will be introduced from Friday.
There’s space on the line-up for some of our favourites – mac & cheese and the Reuben pastrami sandwich which we’ve ordered more than once.
Then there’s new arrivals like Calton kebabs – gourmet offerings with options like shish chicken, tandoori fish or braised ox fish. Look out for their pizzas too, they mean business.
Expect lots of American-tinged soul food to be the most popular restaurant items – think chicken wings, burritos, and loaded burgers – which sit along more local flavours like steak and chips or the chicken and haggis pie.
Here’s a first look at the new menu in full.
