So you’ve heard of punk rock, right? But what about punk tapas? Small Plates Sessions is a street food stall popping up at outdoor market Last Days of Shoreditch, promising to serve up an invigorating take on tapas throughout the summer. The pop-up will be led by chef Ben Spalding, a rising star and former chef at Simon Rogan’s Roganic restaurant and at Aqua Shard

If you’re thinking ‘Never Mind the Bravas’, think again. Small Plates Sessions is all about out-there mini dishes rather than tapas in the trad Spanish sense – from Gressingham duck with a chocolate salt crust, to a sandwich made from chicken skin and the Cookie Dough Milkshake on a Shovel (one for We Want Plates, perhaps?). The innovative menu will be served across a 50-cover mezzanine and paired with a soundtrack supplied by DJs selected by Spalding.

Small Plates Sessions will also be taking over a no-reservations terrace and bar at Last Days of Shoreditch, with a focus on dishes cooked in a charcoal oven, including Cornish monkfish roasted on the bone. You can follow it up with the totally punk-sounding ‘Silky Charcoal Holy Fuck Fudge’.

LOOK AT IT, WHAT A REBEL. 

Small Plates Sessions is at Last Days of Shoreditch, 288 Old St, EC1V 9LA. Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays, 5pm-11pm, from May 25 to Aug 26. Tickets are available at www.benspalding.co.uk and cost £28 for any four dishes.
