“A Meal Built of Many Small Plates”
Since Joro opened I’ve heard nothing but good things, and with booking reservations being made months in advance we were keen to see if it lived up to the Hype. We were kindly bought gift vouchers for our wedding by friends, so we decided to celebrate our wedding anniversary there.
Joro (which simply translates to “Earth” in old Norse language) is based within the KRYNKL building (http://www.krynkl.co.uk/)which is made entirely from upcycled shipping containers, in the Kelham Island area of Sheffield. The restaurant has a very European feel, with chilled beats and modern minimalist style.
Jöro holds a Bib Gourmand in the 2019 Michelin Guide, 3 AA Rosettes and a score of 5 in The Good Food Guide. The Menus are reflective of the season using sustainable ingredients, and locally sourced when possible, in the form of small plates, think the new tapas!
The menu options on our visit in June was a 10 course taster or small plates, we opted for several of the small plates and were brought complimentary linseed cracker with beetroot puree and sourdough bread with Miso butter, which were delightful. The plates are brought to you as and when they are ready we opted for the “Moss Valley Pork Belly with Curry Ketchup, Barbecued Sweetcorn with Curry Ketchup, Lightly Spiced San Marazano Tomato Tartare, Swede Tagliatelle with Basil and Caper Pesto, and Barbecued Broccoli with Black Garlic and Vacche Rosse”. Each course was delicious and unique in its own way, and we finished by sharing “Annabel’s Strawberries with Sweet Cheese Ice Cream” which was delicious.
We really enjoyed our evening, and its a perfect place if you are looking for a special location to celebrate, especially those foodie friends! Its location means you can continue the evening with plenty of nice bars nearby, remember its in demand so please book in advance.
