Review: Oxalis Offers Michelin-Style Magic At Great Value Oxalis at Platform 1 5
The mouth-watering trout rillette.

Nothing's ever quite the same at Platform 1 — East Dulwich's 'permanent pop-up'. Oxalis — two ambitious chefs combining British ingredients with classic French technique — have a residency here till September only. Even then, the dishes change every month, and are tweaked en route. Such attention to detail is not lost on us: from silky chicken liver pate and pickled beets, through to trout rillettes that melt on the tongue, and tart apple sorbet with poached rhubarb — the five-course taster (£35pp) wouldn't be amiss in a Michelin-starred joint. Founder Chloe pours wines on a whim, from cloudy prosecco to a spicy red from Adelaide. One thing that's a constant at this place is the quality. Oxalis at Platform 1, 71 Lordship Lane, East Dulwich, SE22 8EP. Until 30 September. [Thursday-Saturday]
