If you're sushied out, why not try Japan's take on BBQ with Sakesan, Soho's newest robatayaki bar? With a culinary team of 12, led by executive chef Andre L’Herminier and scattered across a series of open kitchens, expect classic Japanese grilled dishes with contemporary twists including homemade steamed tofu; lobster dumplings; mouth-watering rib eye steak; and Sakesan's sake Teriyaki salmon (try saying that five times fast), served amidst chic, lounge-like interiors.
In the evening, the Fiona Bagaman and Mirei Lim-designed restaurant turns into a sexy nightspot, with dishes matched with a great range of sakes, potent awamoris, beers from Japan's regional ji-biru beer movement and Nippon-themed cocktails.
You'll get your Rising Sun fix quicker than a bullet train of screaming, scantily-clad school girls.
“Mecha Kucha”! (pretty bloody awesome in Tokyo slang)
