Very mixed feeling about this restaurant.. read on!
This was probably the best fried fish I have ever tried! It’s hake fried in beef fat, served with chip shop curry. The batter was fried to a deep golden brown. It’s amazingly crispy and bubbly, while the hake inside was juicy. It's topped curry leaves and pickled gooseberrie, which cut through the fat and brightening up the palate.😋
Another dish that I loved from Perilla was the pluma of Iberico pork with braised greens (pic2). The meat was rich, and succulent, and so tender that it melted in my mouth😍
I also had the roasted skate(pic3) and red onion ratatouille with parmesan and baked quail egg (pic4), which I found quite average unfortunately, especially the skate as it hasn’t got much flesh on.
And very sadly, the dessert was the most horrendous thing I have ever ordered in a restaurant😓. It’s the soft herb sorbet (pic5). Somehow I just assumed it to be a sorrel or basil sorbet, and it ended up to be made of coriander and parsley.. guess my fault for not checking in advance. To make it worse, I have ordered two portions! One spoon and I almost threw up - no joke! It totally ruined my dinner. I really do NOT think it’s a good idea to put coriander in a dessert... My friend who loved coriander couldn’t stomach it either. Upon asking, the waitress said half of the customers loved it and half hated it. Not sure what to say about that but they could at least put a warning on the menu. But why would you served something that half of the people would hate anyway?!?!😡
Overall, the service was good and some of the food were top class and good value (£11 for the hake!!!). If you order well, you can potentially have an excellent dinner here. Just don’t try the sorbet... but let me know what you think if you have tried it😅

@thefisheries has definitely designed something very special. We couldn’t get enough of this dreamy collaborative work space in London Fields filled with tons of plants, wooded, raw elements and natural lighting. We definitely know where we will be if we’re ever in need of a desk and an extra boost of inspiration 🌿🍃🌱 #happyfriday
