grilled eel with cucumber
This is a photo post of dinner at Kikuchi Japanese Restaurant last Friday night. It’s not that I have nothing to say (c’mon you guys know me better than that!). It’s just that all I need to say is that I loved it and I’ll definitely be back.
amuse bouche ~ potato ball
scallops with Japanese ginger and citrus dressing
tuna with grated yam potato
chef’s sushi selection
fatty tuna & spring onion rolls, razor shell clams and selection of a la carte nigiri
toro nigiri ~ £8 for one of these suckers
the sushi chef man
Ok wait, I do have something to say (see, I knew I couldn’t keep quiet). Kikuchi is simply brilliant. The food is fresh and delicious and that sushi chef guy looks bona fide and those knives behind him? Yeah, don’t mess with the guy.
The menu’s actually quite affordable if you stick to the small dishes and selections. Hit the a la carte though and your wallet will feel the pain. Starting at £2 per piece in a la carte, the range goes up to £8 for one piece of toro nigiri. Insane right? But I’m quite happy to have the selection… the chef’s sushi selection was perfect.
Ok, ’nuff said.
