Ramadan may have gone, but our Sunday BBQ is here to stay – by popular demand. Come hungry for our special dish, because the plate will be full. Succulent Rump roast or half a jerked hen, plantain, Baby carrots, roast potatoes, Yorkshire pudding, grilled cabbage, all topped with a jerk gravy. Cooked on wood coal, every Sunday from 12-4pm.
Roast for Ramadan
With Ramadan approaching we understand the hunger and the cravings that come with breaking your fast. You want something delicious, filling and nutritious. So what better dish than a Sunday Roast?
How cruel would it be to restrict this mother of meals to just a Sunday Brunch? So here we are, Guanabana is going to Roast for Ramadan.
But not any ordinary roast. We give it our twist with jerk gravy, coal roasted jerk chicken or jerked roast rump beef. The usual accompaniments include roast potatoes, roasted veg, Yorkshire pudding and fried plantain. A meal to fill your belly and your soul!
With that said in the spirit of Ramadan we will be donating £1 for every "Ramadan Roast " we sell to a great cause, " Rumi’s Kitchen."
Rumi's Kitchen began in 2012, as a soup kitchen to address the increase in poverty in the Cricklewood area. The initiative has since evolved and became a community kitchen for all to tackle local issues.
Their guests range from rough sleepers and low-income families to a surprising number of individuals who are socially isolated and simply come for a chat. In 2017, they opened another kitchen service in the Harlesden area in response guest feedback at having no access to a hot meal on Saturdays.
At Rumi's Kitchen, guests are treated to a dining experience with meals served on real plates, with proper cutlery and glasses, an experience that we can easily take for granted. In July 2018, Rumi's Kitchen will be operating from their new community centre "Rumi's Cave" in Queens Park where they can offer three meals a day, as well as other support services.
Rumi's Kitchen owes its success and longevity to their many volunteers which means every £1 donated from the Ramadan Roast will go directly to one meal for a guest! If you would like to read their full story or would like to volunteer, please visit rumis.org. Thank you and Ramadan Mubarak!

- The Cut -
The blade cut originates from the intensely practiced muscle in the shoulder area. It has a line of connective tissue down the center, making an extreme steak most appropriate to a moderate cooking or braising technique to yield a delicate outcome. Kept in general steak, diced or cut into strips for panfry, the blade is a flexible choice.
Nowadays it's considerably more typical to dismantle the block into its individual muscles, each of which can be showcased as another sort of steak. Therefore, the blade steak from Guanabana Restaurant is the menu of the day.
- Blade steaks are made by cutting specifically over the top blade muscle, which is in reality truly delicate. The issue is, there's a crease of connective tissue going through its focal point. Which implies that each area of steak has a bit of this intense cartilage appropriate amidst it?
- The best way to separate the extreme connective tissue amidst a blade steak is to cook it gradually, with sodden warmth — at the end of the day, by braising it.
- On the bright side, there's a ton of muscular flavor in a blade steak and it's generally modest. Braise it for around an hour and you'll cherish it.
Another method for managing that strip of cartilage is to evacuate it. What's more, truly, that is precisely how level iron steaks are delivered. Level iron steaks are produced using precisely the same blade muscle, just instead of cutting them across, leaving an area of cartilage in every steak, they're cut the long way. That crease of cartilage winds up going into the piece heap (which implies ground hamburger). Accordingly, a similar bit of meat yields two very surprising steaks.
Level iron steaks are more costly —Both in light of the fact that they are dispassionately more alluring, and in view of the extra work required to deliver them. In any case, not at all like blade steaks, level iron steaks truly are awesome for flame broiling.
For Christmas party you and your family are currently prepared to encounter an amazing meal with this straightforward however awesome tasting blade steak formula. On our Guanabana Restaurant, you, along with your family will have the best options for the same and that also within the finest budget.
