So why settle for the usual bangers and burgers on a the barbie when you can have Wagu beef, short ribs, Ox tongue, seafood such as prawns, squid and scallops on the menu?
What am I talking about is the Yakiniku experience from Sakagura LDN which is the more upmarket branch of Shoryru. The venue on Heddon Street just of Regents Street is like a hidden gem of food galore and places for a quick drink or drinking outdoors while you watch the sun going down in the heart of the West end.
So let’s get to the food.. The menu normally £30pp minimum order is for two person.(I would it’s a tad over priced for the quantities. However for the experience and ambience of the setting, maybe…) The price includes, as a starter, Japanese rice, salad and miso soup.. Before the Bbq is served each person can pick three items from their meat, seafood and veggie options.. I will recommend for the price to order the meats and we definitely recommend the Australian Wagu beef, this is an additional £3 per portion ,we asked our waiter which one he would recommend, sirloin or cubes.. Apparently one is diced.. Lol.. Well we went for the Australian Wagu sirloin and it was amazing!
We tried the Wagu, short ribs, chicken thighs, Ox tongue, prawns and scallops. We felt the quantity and quality of meat was great and the experience of cooking the meat at the table really heighten the experience. The traditional stove that you use to cook really feels like a traditional experience.
To end the meat feast, the process include a scoop of icecream where you get to pick from the following flavours.. Sakagura last vanilla, dark chocolate wasabi and my favourite soya sauce caramel.
P. S did I mention the happy hour cocktails? 2-4-1 5pm-7pm Monday to Friday.. £15.00 each normally
P. P. S just to mention if you head over to Sakagura website they have the Yakiniku meal for 2-4-1 until the end of July.. I know it’s not long to go.. But better late than never.. Download the voucher and grab a friend.
