Eat With Your Hands is a new immersive dining experience coming to Tower Hamlets, for the community’s annual Shuffle Festival.
Down in the woods where nobody goes … there’s an Indian dining experience that gets customers to use their hands and clamber up into a treehouse for the pleasure.
As you might have guessed, the premise is all about eating with your hands and is inspired by the theme of this year’s Shuffle Festival, which just so happens to be public and private spaces.
The treehouse will be situated in Tower Hamlets Cemetery Park and the organisers promise it will look magical when lit up.
Chefs Anjli Vyas and India Hamilton have flown over from Mumbai especially for the occasion, and their event seeks to ask: “Does the way we eat change based on the environment we are in?”
Hygiene-worriers needn’t worry over the lack of cutlery, as there’s set to be a “cleansing altar” where guests can cleanse themselves with rose-infused water amongst other lotions and potions.
As for the food, it’s set to be amazing, full of flavour and a grand communal affair. Dishes on offer will range from a Woodland Meze full of cheese, herbs, figs, nuts, jam and hummus to spiced Halwa on pancakes or Indian spiced roast chicken. There’s some amazing foodie options inspired by Persian, Indian and Turkish cuisines and of course, who doesn’t want to dine in a treehouse?
Guests have the choice of booking onto the brunch which is only £20 for two courses and a cocktail or dinner which comes in at a very reasonable £17 for three courses.
