Finally we get to try Zuma – it was by luck really as after being told that it was difficult to get a table at short notice, we actually got one for lunch within 48 hours! All excited after being told by some that they thought it was far better than Nobu, I hurried along to meet my lunch companions, family, to see what all the buzz about Zuma was about. I thought I’d put a picture up of what you would not normally see, the wall full of bottles which was one of the views I had at my table, as an interior shot of Zuma London.
The Omakase continues… this time at Roka, Charlotte Street.
Being a rather cold and rainy/sleety day, it didn’t take much to persuade ourselves to go somewhere to keep warm and enjoy what we enjoy doing most… eat! So on this ocassion we turned to Roka. Having mostly experienced their Shochu lounge, I was glad for the opportunity to try their restaurant again and this time without a doubt, we didn’t look at the menu in detail, but made the decision of – let’s go omakase!
Ah Nobu… the occasion to dine there? Just as a lead up to Chinese New Year 2013 and part belated birthday celebrations of two family members! The Old Park Lane, one of the notoriously difficult areas to find parking, I found myself rushing and cursing to meet the rest of my family there on time. However, much to my relief, I wasn’t the only one delayed, so had time to sit by the bar to recompose myself. So while waiting I decided to try the Olympus OM-D in low light (no flash) and took the candle & menu below.
