Bangers and mash

Bangers and mash is a term used in Britain since the end of WWI to describe one of the most common dishes in the British Isles. Bangers was the name given to the frying sausages that especially during periods of scarcity such as the World Wars contained a large amount of water & dried bread a combination which exploded when fried. Mash is of course for mashed potatoes.

This heart-warming meal is often served with onion gravy, fried onions, and peas. The meat can vary depending on the restaurant, the cook or the preference. Nowadays you can even find vegetarian variations with veggie gravy & horseradish mash. Although not particularly fancy or peculiar it is certainly one that will make you appreciate the power of simplicity in cooking.

There is no place more appropriate for this than Mother Mash Restaurant. You’ll find Mother Mash just off the hustle and bustle of fashionable Carnaby Street. Taking design cues from the original, Victorian London pie and mash shops, this restaurant has an attractive modern dining room, with plenty of daylight, white subway tiles, and TRADITIONAL marble tabletops. There’s also a nice outside area, ideal to sit and watch the world go by.

Humble food becomes the ULTIMATE FEEL-GOOD FOOD in this place. Perhaps it’s the way they use only locally sourced potatoes and make their mash fresh for every person. Perhaps it’s the delicious choice of organic sausages, gourmet pies, and TASTY GRAVIES that accompany it. Or maybe it’s just that FRESHLY-MADE MASH makes everyone feel good. Whatever it is, at Mother Mash you can expect HEART-WARMING, HAPPY, soul food every day of the week.
