Peace Be Upon You
♥NOBU || 19 Old Park Lane, Mayfair, London W1K 1LB
To start of with I had some of the Salmon and Avocado inside out roll, which was really good when dipped in the sauce. I like avocado and salmon, so this was a good first step and choice. I also tried the the black cod with miso which was lovely, it melted in your mouth and was super tasty and definitely did not leave a fishy aftertaste.What I opted for was the regular bento box, which is two trays/ Japanese tiffin worth of food. Which includes the following: Sashimi Salad with Matsuhisa Dressing, Baby Tiger Shrimp Tempura with Ponzu, Black Cod with Miso, Oshitashi, Vegetable Spicy Garlic with Rice, Miso Soup and Assorted Sushi.
Overall I would not go again to Nobu, it’s definitely sparked an interest in Sushi and I’m totally up for trying it again but perhaps at a new destination. My next stop I want to try out is Sushi Samba – who wants to join?!
Reason for not wanting to go again to Nobu is because to me the feel and interior of the decor was outdated and plain, the service was a bit poor and I wish the menu explained what each of the items were. For newbies like me I was just seeing a lot of jargon and had to ask the waiter for a lot of the explanations. #awkward – From the moment your seated you really of feel that uppity glare from other guests who are seated and it really makes for an uncomfortable sitting.
After the initial unwelcoming feeling I started to enjoy myself with the company I was in and overall enjoyed the quality time with my cousins!
