Habit Hunter Hotspots| March Edition

1. Treat your mum to something special at Scully

WHAT IS IT? Scully started work in the kitchens at Ottolenghi, going on to become the creative force behind much of the menu as head chef of NOPI when it opened back in 2011. The food on offer doesn’t really subscribe to any particular culinary tradition, but rather draws from Scully’s own family heritage, which stretches from Ireland to Bali. Which basically means you’ll find dishes ranging from candied butternut with cabbage samba and apple shrub; to octopus with salt-baked avocado and black garlic; to beef short rib pastrami with horseradish & pistachio, in a constantly evolving menu.
