Delicious London: Kurobuta Restaurant Review

We had a very good meal at Kurobuta- a fusion Japanese pop up restaurant in Chelsea that will soon open a more definitive location in Marble Arch. Every dish we had was very well executed and the place has a very cool, urban vibe with a great playlist. The service isn`t the best, the waitress seemed very stressed out and after the first dish we had to wait a lot of time and then all of our other dishes came at the same time. Fortunately everything tasted really good so it`s definitely a place I would like to visit again.

We started off with the beef fillet tataki with onion and garlic crisps (16/20) which I really liked.

And then we followed with nasu dengaku which is a grilled aubergine with sticky miso (13/20). The aubergine was good but the miso was a bit too heavy for my taste.

The shrimp tempura with spicy mayo (14/20) was great when you combined all the bits together, especially with the onion.

The miso grilled baby chicken with lemon (14/20) although good was probably not as impressive as the other dishes.

The tea smoked lamb with spicy Korean miso (18/20) was our favourite out of all. The meat was tender and all the flavours just worked together really well.

  1. My first question is why haven't I been there yet, quickly followed by when will it be becoming a permanent restaurant?
