Oded Oren at Brewery Below
Oded Oren learnt a thing or two about cooking in Tel Aviv before moving to London to bring us his exotic flavours. He's decamped to the basement of Borough Wines to show off his skills with a five-course set menu. Work your tongue through burnt beets with soured cream; warm crispy sea bass salad with smoked tomatoes; squid a la plancha, warm chickpeas and tahini; spiced beef cheek with roasted freekeh; and a cardamon panna cotta with spiced quince. Phew. If you're feeling like a top dog, bump your ticket price up to £57 and cop the wine tasting flight, presented by Lebanese winemaker Faouzi Issa. We're gonna be honest here, never tried Lebanese wine before, but apparently the good grapes of the Bekaa Valley are sweet as.
