New Autumn Menu and Wine list

It’s that time of year; it’s the ‘Season of mists and mellow fruitfulness’ as Keats called it. Summer is now a distant memory, autumn is here in full swing, with turning leaves, cooling temperatures and darkening nights, and winter is fast approaching.

Since the cold days started, we have been searching for new seasonal ingredients, trying and tasting different recipes to find new mouth-watering dishes to add to our menu. It’s been a hard job, it’s always difficult to decide what to change and to choose among the options, but we are thrilled to announce that our Autum/Winter Menu is now ready and available at Mora!

Get ready to celebrate the cold months with us, we’ve added brand new, comforting, full-flavoured dishes, including slow-braised stews and a touch of spicy to keep you warm and delight your senses in these chilled days.

Long-standing favourites will still be on the menu, including, among others, our popular melanzane alla parmigiana and malloreddus alla campidanese, no doubt!

There are still some exciting changes on our wine list, with new luscious additions definitely not to miss!

To celebrate the launch of our new menu, we will be pouring a Special Wine of the day: special wine at a special price by the glass only.

Book a table now and be one of the first to try the tasty New Autumn/Winter Menu and Wine List!

A Carnival Feast in East London

It is Carnival time in Italy! Come and celebrate it the foodie way at Mora on 7Th March!

Carnevale is believed to have originated in Roman times when Saturnalia, the Saturn festival, and Lupercalia, the feast of the full moon, were celebrated. However, its pagan festivals and traditions were adapted to fit into the Catholic rituals, hence it is highly likely that the word “carnival” derives from the Latin carnem levare, because originally the expression indicated the banquet that was held the day before the start of the meat fasting, or Lent.

That is why pork-based dishes and fried sweets tend to be typical of this season. After all, Carnival is a celebration of excess, of abundance, of pleasure. The more transgression takes place, the better, in all fields, including food.

Italians love to socialise around food, and Carnival provides a great excuse to do just that.

We have been searching through regional Carnival recipes to create a tasty and rich special menu inspired by the tradition to celebrate this colourful, joyful time of the year at Mora.
