Guanabana Restaurant British Lamb Week

Guanabana British Lamb

British Lamb Week

Guanabana Restaurant lamb

Guanabana Restaurant is helping to raise the profile and awareness of British Lamb week. Running from September 1st till 7th September British Lamb Week is helping unite all who Love British Lamb. So whether you’re one of the many producers or consumers, Guanabana is excited in playing our part in giving a boost to the great local businesses who supply some of the finest cuts of British meats we serve at our restaurant..

Uk British Sheep Farmers have said about the week long awareness “2016 will be our second year, and through supporting #LoveLambWeek producers have the opportunity to join together and show consumers that we love what we do & are proud to produce British Lamb. We hope to get more people thinking about British Lamb and see more British Lamb in store's, butchers and restaurants UK wide and as proud producers will support campaigns in any way we can.”

Guanabana has joined the ‘Love British Lamb’ campaign!

Being one of Camden’s leading halal only restaurants, Guanabana are proud to support our local farmers and butchers by sourcing only ‘British Halal Lamb’. To celebrate this special week, our team of talented chefs have been developing new creations in our kitchen to give that British lamb an infusion of Latino spirit. Racking our brains for the past few weeks Guanabana is excited for the launch of the ‘Love British Lamb’ week, so we are introducing two mouth watering lamb dishes to our already tantalising Latin American menu.

The Guanabana Lamb Burger!

Sounds boring doesn’t it? Think again! A burger might be the creation of the North Americans but our Latin American roots have produced the perfect recipe for the ‘gourmet burger’. Using our Caribbean expertise whilst not forgetting our Camden heritage our team has developed a burger that can really create a ‘capital kick’! Our chefs have indulged in their Latin roots and using the finest ‘British Halal Lamb’ they have infused passion in the seasoning of the meat! The only dilemma now is, how adventurous are you feeling?

Our spiced lamb patties are cooked fresh using the finest British and Caribbean ingredients. Using a combination of different herbs and spices these ‘Guanabana Lamb Burgers’ are anything but fast food! We have bravely created a mouthwatering burger masterpiece, sandwiched between the finest ice gem lettuce and our ‘homemade brioche bun’.

What topping are you?

At Guanabana we want you to be as creative as our chefs, so what will you choose? A personal favourite of Guanabana is the lamb patty with a ‘skirt of toasted cheese’ layered with ‘British home cured beef bacon’. Sounds delicious, doesn’t it? Would you though prefer our lamb patty smothered in a ‘BBQ Jerk Glaze’ with ‘Jalapenos’? Either way with a portion of ‘hand cut chilli chips’ on the side you can guarantee that our spices and seasoning will pack a punch! This is no ordinary burger!

Chargrilled Guanabana Lamb Chops!

The word chargrilled makes any dish sound mouth watering however, our Latin American chefs barbeque the tender British Lamb which is infused with flavour and passion. Our chefs have meticulously prepared the British Lamb in our Guanabana marinade and then seasoned with the finest herbs and spices. So when the lamp chops are served we guarantee they will be juicy, tender but more importantly mouthwateringly tasty!

But how will you combine the chargrilled lamb chops?

It has been a difficult week tasting all this delicious food but we can definitely recommend combining the lamb chops with some ‘Feta Cheese Mash’. However, the ‘Coal Cool Baked Sweet Potato’ with the sour cream and chive dip is something you must try!. Either way you will be transported to some truly delicious comfort food made in the heart of Camden.

Fear not if you’re not a fan of British Lamb!

Perhaps lamb isn’t your favourite meat? Do not worry at Guanabana our famous Latin American menu has been tickling the tastebuds of Camden and London residents since 2007. So whether you want to tuck into one our ‘Gourmet Burgers’ or perhaps our Jamaican Speciality of ‘Ackee & Snapper’ you can guarantee we will use the finest and freshest ingredients on the market. Our menu has something to suit everyone, just make sure you order the “Dutty Fries!”

Enjoy the last fews weeks of Summer 2016

Our relaxed environment allows you to enjoy the last summer days and evenings tasting the finest food that Camden has to offer. You can get to experience our famous ‘mocktails’ served and created by our famous bartenders. Our ‘Guanabana Mojito’ is not only alcohol free, it is also a great palate cleanser to our seasoned food! But maybe you like a beer or a glass of bubbly? No problem, at Guanabana we love the party atmosphere so we created our ‘Bring Your Own Bottle’ policy! Quite simply it allows you to bring your own wine or beer with you to the restaurant to enjoy with your food for just a small corkage fee.
