New restaurant Bubbas Dining opens

There’s two rules to the South West London Food Blog.

The first one is that we never speak of The South West London Food Blog.

The second is that we stick within the confines of the SW London postcode.

Or do we? After all, this was a blog designed to be about local eating; celebrating restaurants, food producers, and other independent establishments. So I will.

Bubbas Dining is a new restaurant which is opening in Tulse Hill (postcode SE27 if you were wondering) this Friday. I am lucky enough to be going to their pre-launch event tomorrow.

I’m promised it’s new Caribbean with a twist, and by all accounts it sounds like it could deliver. The kitchen is led by Michelin-trained head chef, Anthony Cumberbatch, who has worked in the likes of The Savoy, The Ivy, and Quaglino’s (Sherlock fans – don’t get your hopes up, I doubt there is any relationship).

Bubbas, named after proprietor Antoinette Ledford Jobson’s six-year-old son, aims to produce dishes which are hearty, refreshing and refined; exploring Caribbean cuisine and taking on familiar British fare reinterpreted using West Indian ingredients.

They’re also keen to promote this new Tulse Hill establishment’s cocktail list.

I must admit, I haven’t had a great deal of experience with Caribbean food so I will be looking forward to being enlightened by such morsels as:

– Crab and chive mayonnaise with avocado sweetcorn and beetroot emulsion

– Authentic Caribbean curried goat in a roast petal tuille basket served with avocado puree and plantain crisps

– Carrot cake with rum sorbet and spiced carrot puree

I’ll let you know how I get on!
