Plantain from Ikoyi – buttermilk deep fried plantain coated in dehydrated blackberries and spices, served with a smoky, spicy mayo

Shrimp Boil from Decatur – shrimp, smoked Anduille sausage, Snow Crab, corn on the cob, spuds, a garlic butter dip and a sachet of secret recipe Cajun spiced seasoning

Eel and potato from Sessions Arts Club – layers of smoked eel and potato, deep fried and served with roe, rocket and edible flowers

Egg Hopper from Hoppers – a coconut and rice pancake with an egg cracked into the middle, served with dips and curries / Roti Canai from Roti King – fluffy, crispy, soft, layered, sweet and savoury roti, served with Dhal here / Pig skin ragù from Manteca – a rich ragù with a chili kick served with a monster piece of crispy pig skin / Corn Ribs from Rovi – deep fried then grilled corn, glazed in maple syrup and lime with a lime and pumpkin miso and smokey pumpkin seed dukkah

Garlic bread from Rita’s – a ball of doughy loveliness topped with parsley infused garlic butter and parmesan
