Opening on 5th September 2016, the latest restaurant will sit inside Selfridges department store, offering shoppers the perfect lunch time watering and feasting hole. The menu will feature Tonkotsu favourites such as their deliciously authentic, crispy fried chicken kara-age, their variety of ramen noodle dishes, and gyoza dumplings.
Birmingham’s visitors will also be treated to an additional dish of katsu curry (Londoners, try not to get too jealous!) Expect craft beers all the way from Japan, and an excellent cocktail menu featuring Japanese flavours. In further good news from the Tonkotsu team, Anzu, their upscale Japanese brasserie, will open later this year, offering London diners the chance to tuck in to teishoku sets in a contemporary Japanese-style setting. Sakagura, a joint collaboration between Japan Centre Group and Gekkeikan sake, will be shortly opening their doors, introducing Londoners to authentic Japanese ‘washoku’.
With miso and fish key to this type of cuisine, this restaurant is going to go down a storm with those interested in healthy, clean eating habits. On the menu, you can expect to find dishes such as: wagyu tatami (seared wagyu beef with a tosasu black truffle oil), lobster tempura, kamo nanban (soba noodles with roasted duck) and kurobuta (black pork belly with halen mon sea salt).
Or for the not-so-health conscious, there’s going to be a designated sake bar! Handpicked by Gekkeikan, expect limited edition, sake-based cocktails devised by expert mixologists.
Set across two floors, customers can choose from small, intimate dining booths or a traditional wooden counter from which the chefs can be observed. Visit at: 8 Heddon Street, London W1B 4BU. Openings dates TBC. Perhaps you’ve already heard about Monohon’s pop-up ramen evenings. If so, you’ll know it’s time to get excited, as this pop-up venture finds itself permanent residences in Old Street, London.
Monohon’s noodles are freshly made using a noodle machine imported all the way from Japan. Chef and founder Ian Wheatley fell in love with this ‘b-kyu gourmet’ food after living in Osaka, and wanted to bring authentic ramen noodles to the streets of London. We’re excited to see which ramen flavours Ian will feature on the permanent menu when the restaurant opens its doors. Sushi and Robata has now opened up in the food hall of Whole Foods, close to High Street Kensington station.
The restaurant offers a mix of Japanese-style barbeque and sushi, with delicious, good-value bento boxes at lunch time. Their dessert menu is particularly enticing, and includes matcha cream puffs and yuzu cheesecake, incorporating popular Japanese flavours which are good enough to gorge on.
The restaurant will be headed up by Masa Tanaka, who has come on board from Koya Frith Street. Yoobi will be opening another branch of their restaurant in Oxford Circus, bringing with it more of their delicious temaki and maki sushi rolls. The Japanese/Brazilian mash-up will include temaki dishes such as: spicy amazon salmon temaki spiced with pepper, and seared pica, and avocado and asparagus with baby spinach, carrots and white miso sauce. These unusual flavour combinations are available to eat in, or take home.
