Contemporary Japanese.

TSUKEMONO is a brainchild of local chefs Iris Hable and Adam Hartshorne.

In the spirit of inclusivity our menu caters to everyone from vegans to ethical omnivores. We believe that food should be fun, fresh and unapologetically tasty. While our main source of inspiration will always be Japanese cuisine we love exploring techniques, ingredients and flavours from all over the world.

Tsukemono means “pickled things”. A staple of Japanese cuisine, these bite-sized treats round out the flavour profile of any dish. In homage to this tradition, all of our food is served with a selection of pickles.

We are super excited that Iris and Adam will create 100% Organic versions of their amazing dishes incorporating Ferments & Pickles.

You will be enjoying the following menu:

  • Starter: Homemade Miso Kimchi Soup
  • Main course: Shio Koji Chicken Donburi + Vegan version
  • Dessert: Miso Caramel Panna Cotta (vegan and gf) with popped rice & fruit

    Organic Fermentalists - United in Love & Passion for a healthy planet.

    SUUR is deliciously GOOD. Love & Peace and Sauerkraut 🤟

    Patka & Martin, hailing from Poland and Northern Germany respectively, founded PAMA in 2011, in North London.

    During the intervening 10 years, team PAMA handcrafted over 200,000 jars of ferments, won the 2020 slow food award for sauerkraut, and changed locations several times to meet increasing demands and to overcome limitations.

    First founded in a small Newington Green Kitchen in North London, they upscaled to Hackney Wick, and soon again to the magical Sheepdrove Organic Farm, their home for the past 5 years.

    It has always been the imperative for PAMA to provide the highest quality ferments for the many, not for the few.

    Fast forward PAMA & SUUR developed a range of cutting edge organic ferments for the UK market. The common goal, purpose before profit, and their combined expertise, knowledge and passion puts them in a unique position to provide the highest quality ferments for the many, not for the few.

    Make sure it’s SUUR 🤟
