OQO

Links

The best foodie trend of recent years HAS to be the vogue for world tapas. Variety is indeed the spice of life, and happily, many restaurateurs agree. OQO, a recent addition to this scene, brings some decent Chinese-influenced “tapas” to Islington Green.

It’s a canteen style place, a pleasant mix of form and function that, even on a weekday lunchtime, generates enough atmosphere to make you think that another plate of octopus, a second bottle of wine and an early start tomorrow is preferable to heading back to the office.

The dishes that’ll keep you coming back for more include Baby Octopus in Szechuan Pepper and Salt – good density and great flavour - and Monkfish in a Coat of Yellow Curry (£6), where the meat of the fish holds up surprisingly well under the attack of the feisty sauce.

Desserts – never usually a strong point in Chinese restaurants – are a pleasant surprise and very good value, particularly Caramelised Strawberry Fritters - although “fritters” is a bit of a misnomer. They’re actually deep red strawberries in a perfect caramelized shell. As you bite, the coating cracks, the strawberry yields between your teeth and the tongue gets the sweetness of the fruit and the bitter edge of the caramel in one eye-rolling hit. The fritters are reason enough for a visit. A bill just south of £60 for two, including wine, is another.
