Plates – Dalston

In my happy “plates” 🥰 {press meal}

If you’ve never heard of @plates_london, you’re in for a treat. The team have just found a new home at @untitled_bar_ldn 📍They’re all about sustainability and food innovation 🌎

Chef @kirk_haworth is insanely talented and a true leader in plant-based cooking 🌱 After being diagnosed with Lyme’s, he adopted a plant-based diet to reduce symptoms. He’s worked in Michelin starred restaurants ⭐️ around the world and you may recognise him from @greatbritishmenu 👀

Here’s what I thought:
🌱 5 course set menu
🥔 Barbecued pink fur potato, parsley & watercress, coconut butter, crispy shallots, seaweed caviar

🍞 House bread, whipped cashew cheese seasoned w/ yeast garam

🍅 Lightly smoked tomatoes, house ricotta, wild garlic velouté

🥕 Fragrant carrots, asparagus, verjus & mango, cavolo nero, crispy black rice

🍨 Vanilla ice cream w/ sweet n sour rhubarb, fermented strawberry, caramel custard & matcha tea

🍫As a treat, they let us try the new dessert they’re developing – aerated choc mousse, 85% cacao, salted caramel gold centre, cashew & vanilla ice cream

💰 £45
💭 Wow. This food was sensational. The attention to detail is incredible and it’s clear how passionate the team are about injecting creativity into their food with unreal texture & flavour combos. The only dish I wasn’t keen on was the fragrant carrots – just wasn’t my thing – a bit too veg heavy and too sour in parts. Staff were attentive and the venue is modern and slick
🤷🏼‍♀️ Visit again? Yes. Perfect for a special occasion. I also want bar snacks & cocktails in the garden
🏆 Fave: Pink fur potato and both desserts
