So fundamental to Chicama, that you couldn’t so much as peruse the menu without it…
However, last time you did, you no doubt noticed that the Chelsea seafood spot had just one thing missing: lunch. But fear not, for they’re now about to launch their handpicked daytime menu, combining some of their most popular dinner dishes with new lunch exclusives from chef Tiago Duarte.
You’ll find a selection of delectable starters, from bruised padron peppers to tapioca marshmallow, vegetable sides like miso plantain and crispy aubergine, and of course, a staggering range of fresh fish (they get theirs delivered on the daily), either grilled and served whole, scattered with flowers, or cooked up into dishes like blackened octopus with confit potato, fragrant mussel curry or tuna tostadas with a piquant avocado sauce. All of which can be nicely topped with an indulgent dessert, Pisco cocktail or chilled sake.
And since all the plates are designed to be shared, you could find yourself sampling twice as much, depending on how hospitable your companion is feeling…
…so choose wisely.
NOTE: Chicama’s lunch menu is now available.
