I felt like I'd missed a trick when I perused the menu at this familiar sports bar in Bromley town centre.
Mustard at Mascot's
Mascot's was a sports bar that had a winning food and snack menu. I'd only visited Mascot's once before, but the menu had gone unnoticed, but not this time. My work colleague and I were in our element with a menu serving all day (and night) breakfast options in the form of eggs Benedict or royale, as well as sausage, beans, hash browns and ham and cheese toasties.
The rest of the menu featured typical sports bar food: chicken wings, stacked burgers and extra long hot dogs.
Our food came with a condiments tray filled with my favourite yellow mustard. It was wonderful. My meal was a rather humble eggs royale with a home-made smooth and light hollandaise sauce. It wasn't fancy, nor over the top, simply a filling meal that I gladly tucked into.
I also ordered the sweet potato chips. They were incredible. Salt and oil free, I chose not to season because they were so good alone.
My work friend opted for the burger, and whilst she said it was good, she'd wished she'd ordered my choice because I had wolfed it down.
Food aside, Mascot's sports bar is ideal for a fun, if not random, night out. On Thursdays they have karaoke nights. Naturally, my work friend and I got up on stage, and although it wasn't the busiest of nights, plenty of other revellers took to the mic to warble, whine and whistle their way through a few tunes.
The service at Mascot's is great too; food is cooked fresh, so you might have to wait a bit longer than what you might expect in a restaurant, but our waiter apologised for the delay and our drink servings were the largest I've seen this side of the South East.
Mascot's is also a relatively cheap night. For a large glass of orange juice I paid £1.50, a bottle of Corona is £4.00, beer is £3.80 and cocktails are typically on offer with 2-for-1 deals throughout the week.
Now you know where to go when a Mariah moment strikes, or that hunger for sweet potato fries.
