Bloom's has always been a Jewish landmark. First in the East End, then in Golders Green and now in Edgware.
Having recently revamped its Golders Green branch, Bloom's has now opened up in Edgware on the site of the old Kinneret.
Where Kinneret was a mixture of modern Israeli and traditional Jewish, Bloom's sticks to its roots and this branch is strictly old school.
And that's what makes it really great. All the dishes your grandmother would make and some she wouldn't have a clue how to cook.
For starters, there's soup and the choice is amazing. From chicken to cabbage, it's all there and having tried a bowl of chicken soup with matzo balls, its taste was truly delicious. Nice and hot, not at all salty and massive balls to fill you up.
And when it comes to mains, then it's just about everything you could want. Chicken, beef and lamb served in various forms.
Of course, salt beef is pretty much synonymous with Bloom's and at its branch in Edgware you won't be disappointed.
Decent size portions on the plate or in a sandwich and with no fat on the meat make it a worthwhile visit.
Eating in doesn't come cheap, expect to pay around £20-£25 a head for starter, main course and a soft drink, but this is quality food, prepared well, served well and in very clean and comfortable surroundings.
