Restaurant review: Shackfuyu, Soho, London

Way back in September, we all scheduled in a trip to Japanese restaurant Shackfuyu to try their new brunch offerings in celebration of Lily's birthday. We'd been before to try the dinner menu but as massive fans of brunch, we were all desperate to try their new offering.

Priced at £35, the Sunday brunch includes unlimited prosecco or pineapple sake. God I love this unlimited trend in London at the moment. I opted for a glass of prosecco while I drooled over the menu. Included in the price were two small dishes and one big dish - an insane amount of food and a combo that will leave you waddling out of the building. You also get a fresh fruit platter and their famous french toast served with green tea soft serve for dessert to share.

After lots of deliberation, I decided to go with my old faithful Korean fried chicken wings. These are absolutely incredible and one of my favourite things I have eaten. Anywhere! The sweet, spicy sauce scattered with sesame seeds with the succulent chicken is just the perfect combination. Then keen to try as much as we could, Hannah and I tag teamed and picked two things to share. Intrigued by the green tea waffle, we decided to have this as one of our options. Topped with crispy, smoked bacon, gooey maple syrup and a black sesame butter, it was well worth the punt. A great sweet tweet for such a savoury brunch. We also shared the Katsu Sando which was a breaded chicken in a sandwich with a tonkatsu sauce. A bizarre concept but something that I really enjoyed. The sweet sauce was extremely addictive. For our large dish Hannah and I decided to share the beef short rib as we'd had it before and fell in love. Incredible tender beef served with a bundle of iceberg lettuce and two sauces. Prepare to fight over the last piece if you go for this!

Once again it was another successful trip to Shackfuyu. Service did leave a lot to be desired at times as it was slow despite it not being overly busy. But they were pretty quick in filling up our glasses which is always a winner. I think the brunch is great value as a good amount of food is on offer. I'll definitely be back!

  1. I've wanted to go this restaurant pretty much ever since I read about it in Time Out when it opened but for some reason I still haven't been :( Your post has just put it back on the top of my list so thank you! Everything sounds so wonderful, especially the bottomless prosecco.. x
