End the week on a high note with Sìso’s Slow Sundays

It’s as winter nears that we find ourselves craving the comfort of a shared, Sunday lunch or dinner. There truly is no better way to end the week well than gathering your loved ones for a comforting, hearty feast (with a glass of red for good measure), and thankfully one of our favourite, neighbourhood eateries has just announced the return of its popular Sunday series, Sìso Slow Sundays. A weekly event that began in 2022 and has continued ever since, so loved has it become, Slow Sundays offers a curated take on the traditional roast with a mouthwatering menu of dishes on offer for lunch and dinner that are reminiscent of a meal made at home (although with a decidedly elevated spin).

Right: Porchetta

In a banquet-style feast, guests will be given the option of two mains: a porchetta with free-range pork, braised puy lentils and pancetta, or a slow-roast lamb shoulder served with wild herb tabbouleh, pomegranate, golden raisins and pistachio. Both of which are to be enjoyed with an impressive array of toppings including romesco, jus, labneh and green harissa, and delicious sides like sautéed greens with lemon and toasted almonds, roasted heirloom carrots with pistachio dukkah, and harissa-roasted baby potatoes. It is a long lunch offering that perfectly showcases Sìso’s signature, culinary approach — simple food, exquisitely done.

Just like the traditional Sunday roast, Sìso Slow Sundays are designed to embrace food as it was meant to be eaten — unfussy, full of flavour and much better when enjoyed in good company. The menu is designed to be shared (among a minimum of two guests), making it the perfect excuse for getting together with friends and family at the end of the week.
