We’regoing to cut to the chase, the Platterform collective have truly excelled themselves. Having taken up residency in London Fields at the Hothouse Rooftop since January, they have been tantalising the pallets of Londonites with its Sea Adventure Series ever since. Lasting 15 weeks in total, the group have lined-up a series of guest chefs taking up residency to dish up a variety of fish suppers, inspired by cuisines from across the globe.
For this leg of the voyage, we found ourselves at the helm of the Toko Indonesian Kitchen. Unashamedly, we tucked into a 13 course sharing platter of Toko’s signature dishes, each representing an Indonesian island. From Redang Sapi, Padang-style slow braised beef in spicy coconut sauce, Ikan Kuning Acar, Indonesian Style Ceviche, through to Udang Pepes, fragrant prawns steamed in banana leafs. Hands down, the beef redang was one of the best we have devoured in a long while. You heard it here first, kids.
Whilst the next chapter in this seafood adventure, will see the arrival for this weekend only of street food kings Vinn Goute Seychelles Kitchen, who will take command of the gallery to prepare a tropical seafood treat. Signature dishes will include the Bourgeois Red Snapper, the King Fish as well as curried goat, an old time favourite.
Regularly featuring at KERB and Street Feast, we are sure this going to be a sell-out, so be sure to get your tickets pronto. Whilst for those who prefer a taste of home, be sure to head down to for the first two weekends of April to sample the best of Britain’s land and sea, courtesy from The Foragers team.
Heralding from the countryside of Hertfordshire, the team, also found cooking-up a storm at The Verulam Arms in St Albans, will be dishing up a mouth-watering menu including rock dove, sloe gin cured sea trout and Dengie Bouillabaisse, featuring a collection of rarely used British catches.
Suffice to day, a visit to the Sea Adventure Series is a fully immersive experience – as well as out of this world dishes, there are a variety of nautical themed cocktails to stick your oar into, as well as projected art installations and sailing influenced music. What more could you ask for?
Running until 13th April 2014.
