as a place to eat has a mixed reputation. Personally we don’t think it’s all that bad with Market, the ChinChin labs, some of the weekend food stalls and the pubs in Primrose Hill serving decent grub. So when we heard about Made in Camden located within Camden’s most famous live music venue The Roundhouse. We wanted to check it out, after all, music, food and beer – what more is there?

We visited for dinner and sat by the floor to ceiling windows, people watching from the comfort of the relaxed, warm restaurant. The concept of the dinner menu is simple, each diner orders 3 dishes which are brought to the table when they are ready rather than in courses.

We wanted to fit a dessert in so we opted for five dishes between two. The Sweet Potatoes, baked ricotta, roasted grape and caper dressing was the first dish out. A great tasting dish we demolished it in seconds. Next up was the Grilled Brussel Sprouts our least favourite dish of them all.

The Crisp Seabass, Char Grilled Scallops and Crispy Pork Belly were all extremely well thought out. Each dish was served with textures and flavours which complemented one an other perfectly. The Scallops cooked to perfection, were juicy and plump. The Pork Belly was a nice piece of meat, tender and tasty served with pickled cabbage, apple puree and poached quince, for us this was the winning dish. The one we fought over…..

To end we opted for the Peanut parfait, chocolate mousse and salted butter caramel. It wasn’t what we expected but like the other dishes the flavours and textures had been planned so well you couldn’t fault them.

We really enjoyed our meal at Made in Camden and we’d happily go back although next time we’d try the Steak Sandwich it looks mighty fine.
