Once you pop you just can’t stop. Well Kurobuta certainly can’t, as it's turned permanent and settled into Marble Arch, and we're all over it. The décor features lots of exposed light bulbs, booths, benches and bar seats. Some say it's Japanese pub vibes, we say it’s laid back dining with tons of sake and killer food.
The staff all know their sh*t and are dressed like chillers, if we could carry off double denim we’d wear it to work too. Behind the food menu is Scott Hallsworth, ex-head chef at Nobu, so come hungry. Divided into sushi, snacks, cold raw and Japanese junk food, there's a lot to think about so take your time.
The cocktails are awesome - light, fresh and all with an Asian twist, we loved the Chelsea Iced Tea and the Sake Caipirinha with fresh lychees, limes, Meijou futsu shu and plum infused sake. Don’t miss the sake menu, grab a member of staff if you don't know what you’re ordering and follow their lead. That goes for the food too, go big, be adventurous and enjoy... it's all delicious and finish off with a Japanese carrot cake. Yeah boi.
