Eli & Fur
A record that always reminds you of Ibiza
Cure & The Cause (Dennis Ferrer remix) – Fish Go Deep
Your perfect breakfast would be…
Eli: An American breakfast…Applewood smoked bacon and eggs over easy. Or if meat is a no go then banana pancakes.
Fur: Papaya with lime
The most unusual thing I have ever eaten…
Fur: Leaves and grass, I used to pretend I was a horse when I was younger.
Eli: Rabbit droppings. At school I went to an activity camp and we did it as an experiment which looking back seems weird..
The dish that reminds me of my childhood
Peas and fish fingers or animal shaped pasta
Who taught you to cook?
Eli: Myself, I’m not great.
Fur: My Mum, she’s a good cook. And Jamie Oliver
Your favourite 3 restaurants in your home city…
Eli: I’m from London and my favourite three at the mo would be Bad Sports (amazing tacos), Gymkhana and look out for Le Bun…they do pop ups around London – their truffle burger is the best burger I’ve ever eaten.
Fur: Eat Tokyo for quick sushi, José has great Spanish tapas. I have also been trying to find something equivalent of Klaw in Dublin (below), haven’t found it yet. There is probably the best food I have ever had.
5 other restaurants from around the world you love…
Gitano in Tulum, Mexico
La Contenta, New York City, USA
Scorpios, Mykonos, Greece (below)
PICA, Cali, Colombia
Eveleigh, Los Angeles, USA
A DJ or musician that has surprised you with their cooking…
Okay so we have never been cooked for by a DJ. However we’ve seen some stuff online and Kölsch looks like an amazing cook so he would probably be our choice of DJ chef.
Your guilty pleasure food.
Eli: Burgers! In-N-Out Burger in LA or Bleecker Burger in London
What is your signature dish?
Eli: I just putting things in the oven in foil, that works with most things.
Fur: Pasta A La Fur, cooked only after I’ve had a few drinks.
Dead or alive – 3 famous people you would invite around for dinner…
Ha, that would be a super weird dynamic.
A dish you have yet to master…
Eli: I would love to be able to do Caribbean jerk chicken
Your favourite pizza topping
Eli: Basil and Mozzarella with extra cheese capers
Fur: Magarita with Capers
Your biggest ever food mistake
Eli: I was halfway though eating a chicken Kebab in Morocco and then realised it was totally raw. I have no clue how I got through that without being violently sick, always check to see if the chicken is cooked.
Fur: Artichoke pizza two weeks ago, worst food poisoning I’ve ever had!
A dish you just cannot eat
Eli: Kippers, yak.
You get in from the club pissed, dive in the fridge and usually come out with…?
Eli: Cheese and bread, grilled cheese is ideal when drunk.
Fur – Pasta or marmite on toast
The most expensive meal you have ever had?
Mr Chow in LA, don’t make the mistake of going in there for a quick bite. Sexy Fish in London is also not recommended if you are hungry and trying to save cash.
My favourite restaurants on the island…
Collectively, La Bodega in Ibiza Town and Es Xarcu (below).
The best sunset spot for a cold drink…
Your favourite Ibiza dish
Iberian ham and local cheese with some padron peppers on the side.
The perfect 24 hours in Ibiza would be…
DJing at ANTS in the day and then partying there all afternoon, or a sunset boat ride would be ideal…maybe going to Formentera.
A late dinner somewhere in town, there’s so many good parties now on Saturday…can’t wait to check out Black Coffee at Hï Ibiza! Lunch on the beach, chilling out in the sun usually dreading going to the airport so possibly just changing flights and staying for another 24 hours…
