The Owl & Hitchhiker – Archway

Extra, extra, ready owl about it 🦉⁣

The @owlhitchhiker has just been voted Best Pub in North London… Guess people know how much of hoot this place is 🦉 It’s run by the same people who own @thebirdsleytonstone& they offer a similar menu – half meat, half vegan 🌱⁣

🌱The MD Burger w/ crispy seitan, hash brown, facon, mac & cheese, pickles, salad & fries on the side ⁣
✏️There’s a LOT going on in this burger! On first bite, I wasn’t sure about it but as you get to the middle, you get a bit of everything and it works better. Especially when you get a bite with fresh tomato & lettuce and creamy mayo. I would’ve liked some BBQ sauce but it wasn’t an overly dry burger – the seitan was cooked well and the mac added some moisture. Bun worked well!⁣
❓Order Again?⁣⁣ Yes, with changes⁣

🌱Dirty Fries w/ smoky facon, onions, house pickles, fresh coriander & vegan mayo⁣
✏️ This is a HUGE portion, with hot sauce & sour cream! It’s not super hot but does pack a little punch. Chris liked the hot sauce but I would’ve preferred BBQ. Top layer covered well but underneath, it lacks sauce⁣
❓Order Again?⁣⁣ Yes⁣

🌱Salt & pepper cauliflower w/ pickled chillies, onions, coriander, salt & pepper sauce⁣
✏️ I loved these. The glaze is sticky and very sweet and the coriander & spring onion are great additions. Good price too!⁣
❓Order Again?⁣⁣ Yes⁣

🌱White truffle mac & cheese w/ facon, vegan cheese sauce, chives & white truffle oil⁣
✏️Love the truffle and creaminess but this was a little too oily for me. Wasn’t sure I’d like the facon but I didn’t mind it⁣
❓Order Again?⁣⁣ Yes, w/ changes⁣
🌱Spiced chickenish tacos w/ crispy seitan strips, pickled chillies, fresh tomato, onion, basil salad & hot sauce⁣
✏️My fave dish! Southern fried vibes, lovely flavours – red onion goes well, quite hot 🔥 Taco shell was a little chewy in parts⁣
