It’s is still rare to come across a fusion restaurant in London that isn’t either a bit gimmicky or a downright disaster, but TATA Eatery pulls it off brilliantly, combining ingredients from all over Europe and Asia. These guys started out as a stall in Druid Street Market, and now they’ve taken up a Wednesday to Sunday residency in a chilled coffee shop in Dalston. The fusion menu can mean anything from a rice bowl made with Galician blond steak to a sweet shrimp tartare with wasabi and shiso, and while it seems all over the place, everything comes out great. You’re going to need to do a couple of visits, because you’ll want to try as much of the menu as possible.
TĀTĀ Eatery is permanently closed.
