Kurobuta: Japanese street food doesn’t get much better than this.
Kurobuta is a lip-smacking oriental joint with various branches scattered around the capital, offering exquisite japanese street food in inventive, small-plate servings.
Background: The Japanese eatery belongs to Scott Hallsworth, who started at Nobu in London, where he rose to be head chef before heading back to his native Australia. He came back to London to open a pop-up on the King’s Road, which has become a permanent branch, alongside two other venues in Marble Arch and Harvey Nichols. For Kurobuta founder Scott Hallsworth, “it’s about doing something informal and fun but with really good food.”
Atmosphere: With a lively and juvenile ambience, and a trendy, wood-panelled interior sprinkled with flickering fairy lights, this contemporary Japanese restaurant is hugely likeable with a refreshing lack of airs and graces. Kurubuta mixes informal dining with quality food, making it the perfect fit with the playful and high-end nature of Harvey Nichols, and the perfect stop off for a day of Christmas shopping.
Cuisine: Hallsworth adds his signature creative flare to an upmarket, tapas-style menu at this unconventional, izakaya-style Japanese, peppered with East-West fusion influences. We highly recommend the mouth-watering yellowtail sashimi, the impeccable wagyu beef sliders and the beef fillet kushi with onion teriyaki.
Price: £40- 50 / Opening Hours: 12pm – 10.30pm
