Theobalds

November 11th, 2010

I’ve just been to the butcher, Theobalds (McKanna Meats Ltd.), for some osso buco. My friend Oli introduced me to this butcher’s shop, over ten years ago. I wanted to cook some ox tail, which was hard to come by then. Theobalds have a fantastic range of offal, game and occasionally exotic meat, such as crocodile and zebra. Graham even managed to get me 30 sheep’s eye balls recently, for a photo shoot.

Theobalds sells meat wholesale to restaurants in London – Graham told me he goes to Smithfield Market at 5.30 each morning and because of this wholesale trade, ordinary customers benefit from cheap prices that buying in bulk allows. I noticed, this week, that osso buco is £10 per kilo, pheasants are £7 a brace and large gammon knuckles are £1.80. I even got a poussin for £1!

I wholeheartedly recommend Theobalds – you can tell how popular it is by the queue outside the shop. The address is: 21 Theobald’s Road, WC1X 8SL.
