The Potato Project Soho London Review*

So I do have a full post coming tomorrow on our trip to London but before that I wanted to let you all know about The Potato Project, a place we had lunch last Thursday before doing a spot of shopping on Oxford Street. Potatoes are basically my life so I jumped at the chance to go along, try out some of the food and do a review of the place.
The Potato Project is a baked potato company if you hadn't already guessed, who have a big range of exciting potatoes to try, they are all about showing you that potatoes can be exciting and there is more to them than just standard beans and cheese! Every member of staff is passionate about providing fresh and high quality food for their customers, aswell as a homely atmosphere at both of their locations, Soho and Boxpark Croydon.
After a chilled morning in Hyde Park, we got to The Potato Project around 1.45, luckily it wasn't too busy as we were so hungry and ready for food. We were greeted by the general manager Fred, who was so lovely! I was quite nervous before going in because I had never done a blogging thing like this before but he put me at ease straight away and was so polite and friendly to both me and George. When it came to ordering, we were totally taken aback by the menu. Everything sounded so nice and there were so many options. In the end I had the Tuna Mayonnaise, Roasted Corn and Picked Red Onion on a sweet potato which is priced at £5.55. George had the Pulled BBQ Duck, Mozzarella and Sesame Seeds on a Sweet Potato. This was £6.65. I wouldn't usually choose a sweet potato, give me a normal one any day but unfortunately they had ran out. I was still excited to try a sweet potato one out though and I had a feeling I was still going to love it. The tuna went so well with the sweet potato and I already want to go back and order it again. I thought I'd like it but I didn't know just how much, and I really wouldn't say that unless I meant it because sweet potato wouldn't ordinarily be my thing, these just went together so well. I loved how tangy the pickled red onion was aswell and it went perfect with the tuna. Everything about it was just delicious, the potato was so soft and the skin was nice and crispy, just how I like it. George also loved his and was so impressed. His was definitely a bit more fancy than mine, I always tend to go for the standard tuna or cheese on a baked potato and even though mine definitely had a twist, his was a bit more adventurous. I did try a bit of it and we both really liked the sweetness of the bbq duck. It was just something a bit different and nothing like we've ever tried before. The mozzarella was perfect and there was a decent amount which George was quite pleased with! 
I want to mention a few of the other options available here because ours were just two out of many. There is a full menu on their website but the ones that have caught my eye for next time we're in London are, Smoked Ham Hock, Pesto Mayo, Sun-dried tomatoes and melted mozzarella, Borlotti Bean, Tomato and Mature Cheddar Cheese, Black Beans, Lime Guacamole and Corn Salsa, and Autumn Wild Mushrooms, Spinach, Blue Cheese and Truffle Oil. Aswell as potatoes they also do a small range of sides and desserts and there was a full fridge of drinks to choose from and a few snacks near the til. I need to try a dessert next time!

I've mentioned the homely atmosphere briefly, but it really was lovely. It was a really cosy place and I loved how it all looked, it was modern but comfortable and the staff were all so nice. I thought everything was reasonably priced and I was super impressed with how big the portions were. It was just what we needed to set us up for an afternoon of shopping. I coudn't recommend The Potato Project enough, I'm so glad I now know about this place because potatoes are basically my favourite thing and somewhere like this is just perfect to visit for a quick lunch. As I said we went to the Soho one which was literally a 5 minute walk from Oxford Circus tube station, it's perfect to pop into if you work in London and want to quickly pick something up, or like me you want to do some shopping on Oxford Steet. You can order and collect, eat inside or they also offer office delivery which I think is brilliant. I couldn't fault this place honestly.
