Another of those ‘pop ups’ that never quite ‘popped down’ due to huge demand for Shackfuyu and their exciting, vibrant menu in the heart of Soho. Opened by the certifiable big daddies of ramen and Japanese food in the Capital, Bone Daddies, it’s been promised to us for at least a year but we hope it will be here to stay.
Expecting big things, we were not disappointed, hailed as one of Grace Dent’s favourite meals of 2015 (big praise indeed). For glutinous, mouth-watering dishes the list is endless; korean fried wings, monkfish cheeks, prawn toast and the slightly surprising macaroni cheese with extra bacon and cock scratchings (yes, you read that right). Oh and joyously they take reservations.
Be sure to finish with their French toast with bright green matcha ice-cream and an Asahi beer and you will roll home deliriously happy and content.
