TĀTĀ Eatery

London

During the day, this bright, rustic-chic space functions as a cafe, Curio Cabal, but on Thursday through Saturday evenings it becomes TĀTĀ, an unexpected Chinese-Portuguese fusion restaurant led by dynamic husband-and-wife team Zijun Meng and Ana Gonçalves. You'll be treated to their exceptional, culture-crossing bowls of perfectly moist rice beneath anointments like Iberian pork, giant octopus, and marinated tofu. Most important: you'll want to top off your meal with some "ricecream": rice ice cream that's toasted, speckled with caramelized cornflakes, and topped with smashed strawberries and pearl barley.
