We’ve read countless of rave reviews about the Braised Beef Cheeks so we weren’t surprised to find that it was as good as it sounded. With beef cheeks, it can go 2 ways: extremely tough or outrageously tender. The ones at Eleven Strands are of the latter and it was fork tender and packed with plenty of umami. It came with a side of buttery mash and mushrooms and everything was doused in a savoury gravy that had hints of red wine in it. Definitely a stellar dish that is well deserving of all the praise it has received!
