Start off with a warming bowl of seafood miso – a light soup that is full of seafood and shellfish such as squid, prawn and clams. Follow with an early favourite, Loch Duart’s heavenly salmon donburi featuring salmon sashimi, our own tea-smoked salmon, crispy salmon and ikura – gorgeous globes of red-orange salmon roe – all served with rice and super-healthy hijiki seaweed.
Next up is a deluxe tempura selection of oyster, tiger prawn, scallop and soft shell crab served with a tangy lemon and poppy seed dip. Alternatively there’s a light and wonderfully flavourful tea-smoked salmon salad featuring rocket and soba noodles infused with green tea.
Curry udon is our delicious and filling soup with crispy organic tofu, udon noodles and broccoli in a mild curry-flavoured soup. The curry theme continues in Japan’s favourite comfort food – katsu curry – but, instead of the usual pork or chicken cutlet, we serve ours with lightly breaded hake, organic tiger prawn and cuttlefish, all served with a mild curry sauce and rice.
If you’re in the Borough area you should also try salmon teriyaki – glazed and slightly barbecue-flavoured chunks of salmon – with soba noodle salad, or tuna karaage – delicious nuggets of tuna served with Japanese slaw. Our red miso udon is a feast of hand-made fish dumplings with onsen tamago, crispy tofu, shiitake mushrooms, carrots, spring onions in a tasty red miso broth.
Finally, there are our wonderful drinks and desserts, including brown rice saké, plum wine and delicious rice pudding. (available at borough market, southbank & chalk farm)
