Review on Shack-Fuyu
Former Zuma and Nobu Chef Ross Shonhan, who made a big impression with his Bone Daddies ramen restaurants located in Soho, High Street Kensington and recently Old Street in Shoreditch, as well as Flesh & Buns in Covent Garden has added Shack-Fuyu to his portfolio. Originally intended as a pop-up, such was its success that it was decided to make the restaurant a permanent feature. Located in the building that once housed an Italian restaurant, it now serves Western-inspired Japanese dishes known as Yoshoku.
A short walk from Tottenham Court Road tube, the interior is surprisingly large with rows of wooden tables, booths that can seat up to six diners, a communal sharing table and counter dining, as well as a private dining room. In typical Bone Daddies style, Shack-Fuyu plays an eclectic mix of 20 year old rock school music.
The menu includes creative dishes designed for sharing along the lines of tako tacos, octopus, shiso avocado, gochujang and seabass ceviche with pickled tomatoes. Elsewhere there's iberico pork pluma, spring onion and black pepper miso or whole fried seabass with cornichon kewpie. They serve just one dessert kinako French toast paired with soft serve ice-cream. Lunchtime menus comprise of a range of filled gao bao buns and side dishes.
To complement the food there's a concise wine list, as well as Japanese craft beers and whiskies, sakes and Asian-inspired cocktails.
