THE place to go in SOHO for all the Japanese cuisine lovers out there, lies the wonderful Izakaya-style dining restaurant, Shackfuyu.
If looking for Japanese comfort food in a relaxed setting, this is your next must-stop place in the fabulous city of London.
As it was a special occasion (boyfriend’s 30th), we went for the Set Menu – a decision I thoroughly recommend to everyone.
This “wine” type isn’t normally my cup of tea, but with the flavours of what was to come, it seemed to be the most obvious choice for consumption.
Nibbles to start with consisted of lots of edamame beans, coated in sweet chilli soy & tamarind sauce 👌
The second more filling starter was then served – raw fish, AKA “ceviche”. Very light and packed with a concoction of ingredients & spices to keep you guessing on the good old food palette…
Now for my personal favourite, the medium-rare beef with sesame & chilli, accompanied by a fabulous hot stone rice dish with raw egg which was cracked & mixed into the dish right in front of you – a nice touch to the ambience which added to the excitement of the dish.
Sweet Green Tea ice-cream served on kinako French toast – what else can a girl ask for? 💕
And just around the corner from the supposedly “coolest cocktail bar in London’, The Escapologist.
An ideal stop after a lovely theatre performance just up the street 😉 Evening sorted!
