The cooking at DABBOUS is light and modern, with an emphasis on clean flavours and seasonal ingredients. Menus are product-driven, serving innovative dishes based on clear understanding of flavour. Above all else, the food should impress through its sheer simplicity and restraint.
Central to the cooking are fresh herbs, fruits and vegetables, juices and infusions, and wild foods, from the UK wherever possible. Butter and cream are used where necessary but not by default, and seasoning levels judicious, ensuring a much lighter style of cooking that is in keeping with many people’s desire to eat more healthily.
Downstairs at DABBOUS you will find the basement bar, presided over by Oskar Kinberg. Obviously there are the classics, but also many of Oskar’s own creations, such as his “Sloe Gin Punch”, a refreshing blend of homemade sloe gin, hawthorn syrup, ginger ale and pink grapefruit. The cocktails served are seasonal and use only homemade syrups and infusions. Table service is provided, as is a selection of bar snacks.
Dabbous is dining with a difference. There’s no pussy-footing around here, just pure and unadulterated flavour. Using the freshest of ingredients and the lightest of touches, Oliver Dabbous’s menu is understatedly short, simple and seasonally sourced from the UK as lovingly as possible. Oskar Kinsberg’s Bar downstairs is a little haven of brickwork and benches for those fancying something a little bit more footloose and fancy free, but be warned, Dabbous is firmly on the map and a devil to get into, so dropping by unannounced is unadvisable and one should be prepared for a little (or large) wait.
