It’s been four years since the temper group opened a new restaurant but now their empire has expanded once more with a fourth site (the others are in Soho, Covent Garden and the City) now open in Shoreditch. Led by Chef Director David Lagonell, it sticks to the same formula of open fire cooking and a menu of tacos (including the excellent cheeseburger tacos), steaks from rare-breed British cattle, bottomless barbecue brunch, Sunday roasts and smoky cocktails.
The split-level site has a cocktail bar on the ground floor, where you can sip on drinks like The Bone Collector which infuses bourbon with smoked bone butter, then mixes that with wild honey liqueur, bitters and dark sugar, whilst the Piña Pirilla blends pineapple rum, homemade smoked and roasted pineapple jam and shiso leaf – there’s even a fresh take on the Pickleback with pickled chillies, mango and pineapple served as a chaser for the shot of your choice (we recommend choosing from the bar’s impressive selection of tequilas and mezcals). The perfect place for an after-work drink or three, there’s also a weekday happy hour until 8pm (launching on Tuesday 18th October) and DJ sets every week from Thursday to Saturday.
The basement restaurant, centred around the open firepit, serves up meat butchered in-house, cooked over fire, with dishes like smoked goat tacos or whole duck carnitas with chillies and kumquats, served on homemade parathas. And if you want to go big, temper also does bottomless brunch every Saturday, featuring platters of coal-roasted Belted Galloway beef, pork burnt ends, homemade smoked beef sausages, potatoes with gochujang butter and fried eggs, and Sunday roast featuring pulled lamb shoulder, roast aged beef and smoked pork belly with all the trimmings.
If you’re liking the sound of temper, then you’ll love this – we’ve got a £200 voucher to spend at the restaurant and bar up for grabs. Think of all the tacos and mezcal cocktails you can get with that.
