This dish is Mackerel Mbongo. The mackerel is cured on kombu, flamed and then brushed with a spiced anchovy butter. This sauce is a total fantasy, @chinesebisonread about a sauce in Cameroon using alligator peppercorns and interpreted it in his own way using caramelised squid ink and confit lemongrass served with Daikon from @robinsansai.
29 . Oct . 18
Snacks to kick off @ikoyi_london X @theskinnybib X @toufas . Miang of chilli coconut and palm sugar, made with peanuts, cashew, pear and apple and a bergamot flush. Topped with red chilli and toasted coconut. All on a betel leaf, the origin of this snack is a dish served at the royal court. The idea is the Miang captures the spectrum of Thai flavour in a bite.
Fried Prawn relish spider crab and pork skin. Made with small prawns fried, grilled sweet onions, Thai garlic and white peppercorn. A recipe which predates the prevalent use of chilli in Thai cooking.
On 29th October, we’re inviting Jeremy Chan @chinesebison, chef and co-founder of the recently Michelin starred @ikoyi_london and along with @theskinnybib to come cook with @toufasat kiln. Two of the most well travelled and brightest voices in food right now according to us. The menu will be a kind of loose collage of their backgrounds and influences... all cooked over fire and focused on a few of the best examples of produce coming up from cornwall at the moment.
Dishes in development are Raw Lobster & Nam Pla Kuan Egg Yolk, Mackerel with Mbongo & Plantain, Aged Hogget with Gola Pepper & Fermented Scotch Bonnet, Stir Fried Red Curry of Aged Hogget & Green Peppercorn, Ike Jime Mackerel Clay Pot and Greens & Fermented Soy Bean Cake.
It’s a set menu and includes wines which @lukepyper is picking out for the evening. Bookings from 5.30pm, We are now fully booked. Poster by @personality___crisis
We have a few of these Madcap Magnus magnums. 100% Riesling thats stored in old oak for 12 months by Jan Matthias Klein of Staffelter Hof from Mosel in Germany. Zero sulphur, zero additions and bottled by hand. Serving by the glass tonight.3 . October . 18
Do pick up an issue of the ever excellent @codehospitality if you see one. This issue has an interview at Kiln with our co-founder Ben by writer, chef and all round fantastic person @holdsknifelikepen . Thanks to everyone at Code for including us here and for their approach of telling encouraging stories from within restaurant industry. We all need a little encouragement every now and then, don’t we.29 . Sep . 18
Wild Ginger & Beef Neck Curry from Burma, this dish has been on our menu since day one. We use beef neck that’s aged on the bone which gives us excellent flavour. On daily for lunch.25 . Sep . 18
Fried Cornish Herring with Sour Chilli on for lunch today. We make the Sour Chilli by charring red and green long chillies over charcoal to give it that smoky flavour then pound together with fermented shrimp, fish sauce and palm sugar.20 . Sep . 18
On the menu for lunch today we’ve got Kachanaburi Style Jungle Curry of Pollock, Ox Heart Laap with Makhwaen and A Northern Style Turnip, Radish & Herb Salad.
18 . Sep . 18
A roasted long pepper and galangal curry with influence from Indonesia returns to our menu today. Pungent, dark, spicy and then citrus from the green peppercorns. This works well with aged Denver from @philip_warren_butchers cooked over charcoal. We first saw this recipe on the wonderful resource that is thaifoodmaster.com and it’s on and off our menus in a few variations since our first day of opening.12 . Sep . 18
Venison Larb with Makhwaen is back on the menu today. We cook this a little differently to the other laaps you’ve seen on the menu, it’s made in a spicy and aromatic broth taking influence from the northern borders of Thailand.11 . Sep . 18
We’re opening a Radikon Ribolla magnum to pour BTG tonight.
From Fruili in the north of Italy this 2010 vintage is aged 2 years in barrels and then a further 3 years in the bottle. With 4 month skin contact the extended skin maceration in old oak barrels give this wine well balanced tannins and acidity with a citrusy finish. We’re thinking Fried Curried Monkfish with this one, the tannins will stand up to the richness of the monkfish livers that are throughout the curry.
Very slow grilling ike jime prepared mackerel so that the flesh is soft and fatty. The longer is has on the grill the more time for the head meat bones and skin to give they’re good flavour into the flesh.5 . Sept . 18
Southern Style Curried Aubergine, This style of curry made using turmeric is typically seen in the south of Thailand where it is often more humid, so these types of roots are more prominent. This variation is sweet, spicy and slightly bitter with aroma from Thai Basil.31 . Aug . 18
We have a wonderful new wine in by Elisabetta Foradori. Her winery is situated on the hills above Trento in the north of Italy. She has created Fontanasanta Manzoni Blanco (a cross between Riesling and Pinot Blanc).This has a sharp freshness that rebounds on mineral textures and apricots. With this stony minerality and delicate aromas it is a lovely reflection of the craft and care that goes into creating a true biodynamic wine that wishes to reflect its home. On the menu by the glass and bottle.29 . Aug . 18
Our kitchen is serving 12pm straight through till 9pm today. Slow Grilled Lemon Sole, Pollock with Sour Chilli and Claypot Baked Glass Noodles are just a few bits on the menu.
27 . Aug . 18
This is Vignasilan from Vignaioli Contrà Soarda in the hills surrounding Breganze, Veneto in North-East Italy. The grape is Vespaiola which is native to the region and gets its name from the wasps it attracts due to the honey-like aroma it produces in the vineyards. Vignasilan is gently pressed and fermented in steel for 60 days before being bottled unfiltered and aged a further 2 years until release. Thinking this will be a pretty good companion to our spicy and aromatic Dry Red Curry of Monkfish.24 . Aug . 18
Beautiful produce in today including different types of courgettes, squash, himo tagarashi chillies all grown in Cambridge by @flourishproduce for us. @toufas will be using these in our curries and Thai relishes.22 . Aug . 18
A monday morning team tasting of a new dish for us, Geng Jin Som, a northern Thai variation on the sour curries we serve often with fish. This is made with a lot of gourami - fresh water fish fermented in rice powder and mahkwan which a relatively of prickly ash. It’s a really interesting balance between the oily tastiness of fried curry and the herbal bitter notes which come from boiling a paste made with a good amount of lemongrass and galangal. In this instance the aged flavour of good duck compliments the muddy funk of fermented fish really well. We’ll continue working on it over the next couple of weeks, as we come towards game season. Hopefully It’ll work really well with things like deer, hare and small game birds.13 . Aug . 18
Slow grilling horse mackerel this afternoon over charcoal. These are stuffed with a little fragrant turmeric curry paste.7 . Aug . 18
A phetchaburi style boiled curry with Tamworth from @gothelneyfarmer and flowering holy basil from @flourishproduce . Really into this style of floral and herb led curry pastes at the moment. We’re open normal hours today with plently of space at the bar.6 . Aug . 18

The ike jime mackerel sold out at lunch today so we have raw gilt head bream killed by the same technique from @kernowsashimi this evening. Served with this fragment fish sauce, which we make from fresh green Corriander seed, kaffir leaf and som Saa (a type of Thai citrus).4 . July . 18
Ike Jime Mackerel in this morning. (We’re all hugely exited about this). Ike Jime is a Japanese technique for separating the spinal column as the fish is killed, this preserves the taste and texture quality of the fish. Very rare that you see it here at all and particularly so with a common fish like mackerel. Thing is, I actually think mackerel is the best thing we can get out of the sea here so should always be treated like this. We will grill them very, very lightly over charcoal and serve whole today.30 . Jun . 18

Team briefing on how we make our stalwart Wild Ginger & Beef Neck Curry this morning. Been on the menu from the beginning, although it has been through many recipe transformations. Using @philip_warren_butchers beef neck which is aged on the bone gives us a good collagen richness and excellent quality of flavour from the best native beef from an underrated cut.19 . June . 18
This is ARKESTRA, our Grenache blend that we bottled with winemaker Philippe Wies a few weeks ago. Bright fruit, high acidity and best friends with Southern Style Dry Pork Curry, one of chef @toufas favourites. On by the glass today alongside 20 others.18 . Jun . 18
@gothelneyfarmer Tamworth pigs grazing in on a lay of 30 odd herbs, legumes and grasses this afternoon. Yes, pigs graze given the chance. So wonderful to see this project coming to fruition by September they’ll be on an entirely green diet. Fred is a very wonderful and progressive farming talent, hugely lucky to work with him.13 .

Jeeezzz. Tonight we’ve somehow won number 1 restaurant in the Uk.

I’ll stop now, but you know who you are.
Chef nick is at @sohofoodfeasttoday making an earthy spicy pungent water buffalo laab with bitter herbs. London’s eating public appetite for weird offaly tastiness amazed us last time out so we’ve taken it up a notch this year.9 . Jun . 18
Fetembulles Pet Nat by Jean Pierre Robinot. 100% Chenin Blanc. Every bottle will taste different, going down well with Raw Chopped Beef Larb tonight.8 . Jun . 18

It’s back - Northern Style Turnip & Herb Salad. Tokyo turnips from @robinsansai, peanuts, sesame, bitter herbs, lime juice, palm sugar, fresh birds eye chilli, dried prawns and prawn floss.

We are really excited to start seeing more summer root vegetables to use in these types of dishes.6 . Jun . 18

Chef @insta_alb has another new dish on this evening. A very simple salad of wild sea herbs and raw asparagus, dressed with a variation on nam prik gapi (a relish made in a pestle with fermented shrimp, Corriander root and Thai shallots). Bright and salty from the sea purslane and rock samphire, then earthy and a little stinky from the gapi and fish sauce. Stinky is good.2 . Jun . 18
Grills are lit and we’re serving ages hoggett skewers, southern style curried aubergine, slow grilled whole lemon sole and water buffalo larb from midday straight through to 11pm on Fridays. As usual 20 odd wines by the glass and a growing selection of vinyl to listen to. Thanks to @cha_eatery for the photograph1 . Jun . 18
We have some very special ike jime bream being served for dinner service. If you’re not familiar, ike jime is a Japanese technique of separating the brain from the spinal column as the fish is killed. This preserves the quality and texture of the flesh. Chef @toufas is serving it with a very simple fragrant fish sauce, made by steeping sparkling fresh Corriander seed, curry leaf and kaffir from @lukiefarrell . There’s not much of it and it’s not cheap, but it shouldn’t be. Heart warming to have fish and herbs of this quality in the kitchen to play with.30 . May . 18
Dry Red Curry of Lingcod on for lunch today. This dish is slightly Chinese style with wok fried fish, the paste is made from tamarind, sugar and red chilli making it Sweet, salty and spicy with a deeper flavour from gapi/ shrimp paste. Kaffir Lime and Thai basil in at the end to add aroma.29 . May . 18

Last week @lukepyper took us to lend a hand in bottling a Grenache made for us by La Petite Baigneuse . In collaboration with @aubert_mascoli we named it Arkestra and it’ll be on by the glass at @kilnsoho and @smokinggoatbar in the next couple of months with a label designed by @personality___crisis . Please support the good cause of following through on daft drunken ideas by buying a bottle when you see one.
A genuine pleasure spending time with the winemaker - Philippe Wies . He’s working from roughly 11h/a in Maury (Languedoc-Roussillon) . Arkestra is a Grenache from two vintages which was aged in old wood foudres made in the winery, which Philippe built himself in the vines to reduce travel for the grapes during harvest. The talented man behind the camera is @benjaminmcmahon

They turned up with all of these - Angelica Leaves, Hogweed, Ground Ivy, Artemisia, Daikon Flowers to name a few, they are going into a new dish we will be trialling at lunch. Herbal Cuttlefish Soup, similar to Gaeng Om it’s a simple dish traditionally eaten in the North of Thailand4 . May . 18

Chef @toufas has just made a larb of absolute truth. A isaan style chopped aged beef with a rough paste of roasted galangal, shallot and lemongrass. On for lunch today alongside some stunning wild halibut and slow grilled lemon sole. Always such a treat to eat wild halibut, we don’t see it often but you get a briny, deep sea sweetness thats markedly different to the more coastal fish we work with.24 . Apr . 18

Red Sea Bream Grilled Whole for lunch.18 . Aug . 17
Jungle Curry of guinea fowl from Phetchaburi. This dish originates from an old trading city south west of Bangkok. First you get the aroma from kaffir lime, then pungency of fermented shrimp paste and finally the heat from the birds eye chilli. The guinea fowl are slow over charcoal before being fried with the curry paste and the each portion of curry is then built and seasoned in the woks over a low heat Tao barbecue.15 . Aug . 17
A few more Cornish native lobsters with curried egg on for lunch today11 . Aug . 17
And here's the rest of today's lunch menu. My approach would be spiny lobster and red mullet with a glass of Grosset Polish Hill, then the guinea fowl curry with shobbrook Clariot and some stir fried Cornish greens. (And I'd probably arrive at 2.15 so I didn't have to wait).10 . Aug . 17
