14 Aug Yuu Kitchen at ICEBAR London
If you are looking for a fabulous night out in London, the new Yuu Kitchen at ICEBAR London will not disappoint.
At the end of June Yuu Kitchen launched its latest residency at ICEBAR London. The Yuu Kitchen’s menu is inspired by the Head Chef’s heritage and travels across south-east Asia. The Head Chef also brings in his experience at Nobu London, making the pan-Asian and Fillipino menu sensational.
When I visited Yuu Kitchen I adored walking down an atmospheric mural staircase that transported me to the edgy underground scene of a Japanese street with moody lighting. The menu has a wonderful range of dishes to choose from and I have to admit I found it difficult to decide what to eat as everything sounded lovely! Yuu Kitchen advises customers to choose 3-4 dishes per person, so my husband and I decided to choose different dishes so we could try each other’s dishes too.
From the menu we chose the Wagu Bao, the Crispy Soft Shell Crab Bao, Baby Octopus Karrage, Grilled Broccoli, Crispy Cabbage salad, Cheesy Cheeseburger Spring Rolls, Bistek and Chicken Karaage. The food was absolutely divine. The dishes were full of flavour and the Bao buns were wonderfully soft. The flavours from south-east Asia had a fabulous London twist. The Cheesy Cheeseburger Spring Rolls were a wonderful blend of the different cultures and worked really well together. The desserts were also delicious and my husband and I really enjoyed our meal. The staff were also very friendly and attentive and made brilliant suggestions about dishes when we asked. Yuu Kitchen is a fabulous restaurant to visit with delicious food, a great atmosphere and wonderful staff.
After our meal we also visited the ICEBAR. This bar compliments the décor of Yuu Kitchen with their amazing dragon ice sculptures. In the ICEBAR everything around you is sculpted from ice; the bar, tables, glasses and ice sculptures. Temperatures are kept at -5ºC and tickets also include a drink from the bar. You are given a warm overcoat to wear before entering the ICEBAR as the temperature is so low in the bar. ICEBAR is a brilliant experience and is a different way to enjoy a drink in London.
My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our visit to both Yuu Kitchen and ICEBAR and I would definitely recommend visiting them both.
