A few cool new places have come to my attention, tipped off by some of my friends. This round we have Kome London, Glazed & Confused, and Jones Family Project.
Kome London: K-Mex comes to the Capital
Credit to Katie B for the heads-up
First, Kome London is popping up at the Dolls House Hoxton for just a few days (Nov 20-23) and slinging some very tasty sounding Korean-Mexican fusion. Starting at 6pm each day, the tasting menu costs £25 and includes the full line up shown below. It seems like a good range of food albeit a tad pricey (not clear as to just what quantity you get), but given the lack of K-Mex in the city it’s worth a punt. Seems like most people think so too as tickets are selling out fast.

Glazed & Confused: Designer donuts delivered to your door
I get pretty excited about new openings and even more so when I get to taste test at the launch event. Apart from tweeting out pictures of their donut trials (which look absolutely brilliant – dibs on the mint chocolate donut!), there has been little info out about these guys yet. I thought about asking but wanted to keep it a surprise until after the launch.
What I can tell you is that they’ll be able to deliver to almost any postcode within Zone 1 & 2 which makes an excellent time to persuade your boss of the efficiency and time-savings in order donuts rather than sending a runner to the nearest Krispie Kreme. And they’re bound to be better quality (and perhaps even healthier) than your standard Friday treats.
More to come and a full write up after the launch event in a couple of weeks so stay tuned.

The Jones Family Project: Pairing locally sourced ingredients with a love of food
JFP is the new (well newest) kid on the block in an area known more for its watering holes than dining options. It’s currently going through the soft launch phase (get in touch quick as there may be a few tables left and 50% off food is an excellent deal!) with a menu that draws influence from a variety of sources although looks to be somewhat Italian-influenced. Of particular note are the Josper grills for cooking the Ginger Pig-sourced meat – this was the key driver behind Goodmans being the provider of my favourite steak in London (check it out here) so I’m excited to try it.
I’m also curious about Anna’s (the matriarch of JFP) triple chocolate brownie and of course the truffled mac’n’cheese. We’re trying them out this Wednesday so a full review to come shortly.
