Origins Of will launch its first kitchen takeover in Spitalfields, hosted at the independently run venue Blessing’s from April 7th. Abdulla Amin and Hugo Toland’s Middle Eastern-inspired take on traditional recipes will bring a new flavour to the plates of Londoners. 

Friends for over 20 years, Abdulla Amin and Hugo Toland are out to introduce new ideas and flavours to the palettes of forward-thinking Londoners via Origins Of. The concept takes classic Middle Eastern ingredients, remixing them for a new audience. Abdulla, who left a professional career to pursue his lifelong passion for food, along with Hugo, a consultant who clients include dining powerhouse, Street Feast, set on an adventure to create a fresh take on classic dishes. 

The three main offerings of spice infused fried chicken, buttermilk soaked cauliflower florets and a vibrant twist on the classic falafel are served dressed on three mini charred flat breads, as a basket or sharing platters with a selection of sauces including; Tahini Hype, Scotch Bonnet Mayo, Fresh Sweet Chilli, Honey Mustard BBQ and Sumac Yoghurt. 

The recipe development began over three years ago, when Abdulla was living and working in Kazakhstan where he and his colleagues couldn’t find buttermilk, leading to his own homemade recipes. Items including the hummus and pickles will be handmade by Abdulla’s mother using recipes handed down through the family’s Middle Eastern heritage. 

The menu is focused on a simple quality offering; with free-range herb-fed chicken, vegetables from New Covent Garden Market whilst the flatbreads come from a London supplier whose produce is in demand across Europe. 

After years of entertaining friends and family and getting such amazing feedback, it was time to take it to the next level. We are passionate about good food and are on an adventure to bring the flavours of Origins Of to the world and London, our hometown, is the first stop.
— Abdulla Amin
