We’ve been big fans of Jidori ever since it launched in Dalston back in 2015. Well it’s recently had a little refresh and has just this week re-opened with some new menus and dishes.
The one that’s really got us excited is the Cheeseburger Katsu Sando – yes you read that right. We’re talking an aged beef patty covered in crispy panko crumbs, cheddar, bulldog sauce and kewpie mayo. YUM. The only drawback? It’s only available at lunchtimes, Wednesday – Saturday 12 – 3pm. And you thought you’d seen the last of the katsu sando trend.
Other new dishes include onglet steak tataki, tofu yakitori, and chicken crackling with togarashi, as well as a new yakitori set menu at lunch time and a vegetarian omakase at dinner. There’s also happy hour cocktails and a new wine list to get stuck in to.
Old favourites are going nowhere of course so you’ll still be able to get the katsu scotch egg and all those chicken yakitori skewers you know and love. We’ll be in for that katsu sando first chance we get.
