From April 7th Origins Of will launch its first kitchen takeover in Spitalfields, hosted at the independently run venue Blessing’s. Abdulla Amin and Hugo Toland’s Middle Eastern-inspired take on traditional recipes will bring a new flavour to the plates of Londoners.
Friends for over 20 years, Abdulla Amin and Hugo Toland are out to introduce new ideas and flavours to the palettes of forward-thinking Londoners via Origins Of. The concept takes classic Middle Eastern ingredients, remixing them for a new audience. Abdulla, who left a professional career to pursue his lifelong passion for food, along with Hugo, a consultant whos projects have included dining powerhouse Street Feast, embarked on an adventure to create a fresh take on classic dishes.
The three main offerings of spice infused fried chicken, buttermilk soaked cauliflower florets and a vibrant twist on the classic falafel are served dressed on three mini charred flat breads, as a basket or sharing platters with a selection of sauces including; Tahini Hype, Scotch Bonnet Mayo, Fresh Sweet Chilli, Honey Mustard BBQ and Sumac Yoghurt.
