SquareMeal Review of
Tooting’s restaurant scene should receive a welcome lift with the launch of Tota – a family-friendly, all-day eatery on the neighbourhood’s main drag. Breakfast and brunch should suit local
shoppers and the office crowd, while light lunches will put the emphasis on trendy sandwiches, burgers, salads and other daytime staples. Come evening, the kitchen will roll up its sleeves for a
grander menu of eclectic dishes ranging from confit duck with ginger and orange sauce to roast hake with peperonata, chorizo and parsley crumbs served with ‘paella’ croquettes or miso-glazed salmon
with pickled cucumber, black beans and sushi rice. Pasta, risottos and grills will also feature, while desserts will keep it traditional with the likes of pineapple upside-down cake. The modest
wine list won’t break the bank, and drinks will also include bottles of ginger beer from Brixton.
