Forget doom scrolling, it's all about food scrolling here at Hot Dinners Towers. Here's what made us want to lick our phone screen this week... not that we actually would. Covid, innit?
Boy Bawang Bun from Kapihan
This weekend-only special from Battersea's newish Filipino cafe sees them dip their sourdough pandesal in an egg, along with - be still our arteries! - condensed milk garlic butter. Given that head baker Rosemary Motley, trained up at The Dorchester and The Shard’s Shangri La Hotel you can see why it's worth pre-ordering these for pick up.
Pork shoulder doughnuts at From The Ashes BBQ
Normally January consists of 31 days of self-flagellation and recriminations following the excesses of Christmas. This year all bets are off and there's no doubt that having one of these would serve as 'self-improvement'.
The Sumi Box at Sumi Sushi
God, Notting Hill folk really have won the London lottery haven't they? Not only do they get to live the full Richard Curtis experience but now they've got this new Sushi place on their doorstep from the team behind Endo at the Rotunda.
Winter tomatoes from Natoora
Beloved by chefs across town, this winter's lockdown means that you're much more likely to get your hands on some amazing winter tomatoes from Natoora. We can already imagine how these will taste, thinly sliced, drizzled with olive oil and some sea salt.
Smoked pumpkin Omelette from Juliet's Quality Foods
Boozy brunches that while away the weekend might be a distant memory at the moment, but this Tooting brunch spot is still making us want to break lockdown restrictions (not that we would, obvs) and cross town for this omelette with whipped Chèvre, roasted Pumpkinseed & Lemon Salmoriglio on grilled sourdough.
