World Tour at Counter CultureLondon is a melting pot of cultures. Over the years, many food cultures have crossed our counter through the chefs from across the globe who have come through our door. The menus have always been influenced by the individual chef’s own culinary journey from their home country to places of travel and work. With this in mind, we are giving Counter Culture an evolving new outlook by embarking on a world tour. Counter Culture has always been a creative and fun space for our top talent to experiment with new ideas, and this new approach will focus on a different culture's cuisine every two months, giving us the chance to embrace the knowledge within the team whilst learning new skills and techniques and putting them into practice. Each menu will be given our typical approach with the inclusion of our own housemade pickles, ferments and cures. We have spent years building up close relationships with growers and producers across the UK and we will continue to work with them in securing the best local produce however the dishes will be inspired by and spiced with a global influence. The aim of this world tour is to consistently offer something new and fresh. Later in the year, we will be bringing the likes of the South of France, the Caribbean and the Deep South to our leafy corner of Clapham Common so watch this space.
First up, we are kicking off with a tribute to Mexico from May 8th. We are hard at work preparing a simple, concise menu. Expect 'Aubergine and herb tacos, chile de árbol salsa', 'Our farm pumpkin and mole', 'Margarita scallop ceviche' and 'Crayfish and asparagus tacos'.
Our Mexican menu will run from the 8th May right through until the end of June, ideal for sunny summer evenings and Margaritas on our terrace.
