It’s been a busy couple of months at the office and what better way for a bit of team bonding then a lunch down at Bone Daddie’s Shackfuyu in Soho. Their latest opening is Japanese junk food in a tapas style made to share and the staff were lovely throughout, great atmosphere.
Having heard many good reviews of the place I was very excited to give it a try and as you will see it works out best if there’s a group of you.
First picked from the menu was the great idea of the Asahi balloons which are 3L of chilled Asahi with it’s own tap plonked onto the table. These went down an absolute treat with the group.
Next up was the food selection, starting with a few of the smaller dishes edamame with a sweet chilli soy then korean fried wings which were delicious. The yellowtail sashimi tostadas were small mouthfuls with a powerful chilli kick to each bite.
The prawn toast was one of the highlights of the smaller groups, a must for anyone visiting.
Of course we couldn’t resist ordering the wild tiger prawns with a jalapeño ginger dressing, could have skipped this for more prawn toast if I’m honest!
After a bit of a breather and a repeat order of the balloon it was time to dig into the larger sized dishes. A request was the salmon karma which was good but not earth-shattering that was left to the beef.
USDA beef picanha with a kimchee tare butter which was gorgeous and went perfectly with the hot stone rice, make sure to scrape every last bit of rice from around the hot edges – best bits.
The last side dish was the mentaiko mac and cheese with bacon and cock scratchings (Ailsa especially liked that name), perhaps not very Japanese but especially naughty in a good way.
After an epic feast and plenty of beer it was time to satisfy a slight sweet craving by sharing their signature dish kinako french toast with green tea ice cream, gorgeous!
All in all it was a wonderful meal, lovely relaxed atmosphere and great for a long leisurely meal with a big group – would highly recommend if in the area.
