Squaremeal Review of Curio & Tā Tā ?

Druid Street market’s Tā Tā Eatery now has a permanent address, with chefs Zijun Meng and Ana Gonçalves (formerly of Viajante and Chiltern Firehouse) taking up residence in Haggerston’s unassuming Curio Cabal café. Considering the stripped-back vibe here, the short menu is a surprisingly refined array of Asian-leaning, globally inspired dishes. A 24-hour marinated brick of steamed tofu is served atop crème fraîche and sprinkled with katsuobushi (dried, smoked tuna flakes), producing a superbly creamy, crunchy texture. Intriguing, sour-and-salty butifarra (Iberian pork sausage) arrives diced in a cake with fermented turnip tops beneath a fried egg; and braised aubergine is paired with fermented bean sauce, forming a smoky, sticky delight. To drink, there are cocktails, wines, beers and sakés. The kitchen sources top-notch produce (all fish is caught that day), but herein lies the problem: prices are high and portions small. Nevertheless, if you’re after something different and delicious (chocolate-infused mescal Espresso Martinis, anyone?), Curio & Tā Tā won’t disappoint.
