Dub Plates Kitchen is the creation of two friends with a desire to share their dual experience of growing up Caribbean and British, through food and culture.
We grew up with a curiosity about all the cultures around us, people, food and music. Memories of Mum's rice and peas, and curry goat, fish and chips on a Friday and comforting school dinner desserts. Reggae music on the stereo at home, and the Top 40 on the radio, raving to Reggae, Jungle and Garage, and having a bagel afterwards in Ridley Road, or enjoying a curry in Brick Lane.
We want to share our passion for the culture we were raised in, and the food we love that comes from both Caribbean and London.
The rock steady flavours of the Caribbean are the foundation of our kitchen selector’s culinary combinations, food that reflects the unique influences formed as a result of growing up in the city.
Dub Plates Kitchen remixes the dishes of the Caribbean, with a London vibe….expect the unexpected.

Superb Caribbean Fusion Dining Experience

Dup Plates Kitchen is a groundbreaking Caribbean fusion concept that’s bound to catch on with adventurous and fun-loving foodies, principally because the dishes are sublime.
The first course, which comprised Jamaican-style fish and vegetable soup served in an English fine bone china tea set, was most impressive; but the main course (including the vegetarian option) and desert were simply superb.
Fantastic food and a truly innovate take on the West Indian dining experience. Quite possibly, the best thing since sliced hard dough bread.
one drops to die for !!!

To begin with, having grown up British Caribbean myself, I was curious to see what the team behind Dubplates would produce. Needless to say, dishes like the duck pancakes added happy surprise as Chinese food, to me, is as British as Sunday roast dinner or shepherd's pie.
The homemade dishes had a professional quality that has left me looking forward to my next visit; I'll absolutely be coming back for more.
One Drops To Die For!

Thank you, Dub Plates, for a fabulous evening in such a great and quirky venue. It was lovely to meet you both and to learn something of the Caribbean culture and tradition that went into creating these dishes. I've had my fair share of carnival jerk chicken and curry goat but this is something new entirely.
The food was well presented, but at the core of every dish were the amazing West Indian flavours. I have been dreaming about your One Drop arancini balls ever since!
Definitely recommended if you fancy trying something a little different.

Would thoroughly recommend dub plates kitchen for a number of reasons. The food was interesting with alot of takes on british and british adopted classics, such as Fish and chips, bangers and mash, and the adopted like Duck and pancakes, The plates were playfully presented with authentic caribbean/west indian ingredients, with a sympathetic and somewhat romantic homage to the childhood's of both the chef and narrator of the dishes, and for me there was an instant and tangible connection to this, knowing alittle bit about the culture, food and living in a similar area.
The food is fresh, warm and tasty, and you could see alot of the dishes being cooked and preped in front of you, and the service was good. On my visit, there were also canapes being offered, and if they have it when you go, ask for the "one drop". I guarantee you, you have not had your sunday carribean staple like that before!
As a middle aged british born west indian, and proud to be british, I am glad to see finally my traditional dishes, given a great, modern and interesting spin. the (carribean) food with it's origins firmly from Spain, Africa, the indian sub continent etc, can now say it like others is being adopted by the British, and with cooking like this, could soon be mentioned as British Classics (but remixed).
Great food, good refreshments, great company and the venue very quirky, but apt for the occasion. Go and educate yourself, especially if you think you know about Caribbean food.
The concept of dub plates is about the food, the people, and the stories that people share about the food
