Based in the old Monty’s Deli on Hoxton Street, chefs Eddy Tejada, formerly of St John and Silo, and Matthew Scott, from Cub, have established Hot 4 U - a new offering with a London-wide delivery service for dishes - on a pre-ordered £35 set menu each Friday and Saturday. The dishes focus on “sustainability and high-grade produce” and draw on St John’s nose-to-tail approach, and span countries around the world, from Japan to Peru. Menus have so far included the likes of rabbit glazed in fig leaves with Szechuan daikon in a milk bun, and tete de cochon with rosehips and tamarind.
Buttermilk curds with courgettes and fermented potato crackers; mackerel crudo with celtuce & kumquat kosho; rabbit glazed in fig leaf and Szechuan daikon & milk tea bun and burnt cheesecake with apple custard.
Alongside the set menu, the ‘Hot 4 U mini-mart’ also offers groceries such as Estate Dairy cream butter fermented in-house, kimchi, sustainably-grown vegetables, and Cacklbean eggs.
