Shokuji – a popular Japanese meal of rice, pickles and soup found everywhere from in the home to kaiseki menus in restaurants – is coming to Bermondsey thanks to Omoide from chef Angelo Sato.
Former head chef at Restaurant Story, Angelo has gone back to his roots (he used to prep fish for takeaway bento boxes in Tokyo’s fish markets as a teen) with his signature chirashi rice bowls, which include Yuzu Salmon (with sushi rice, avo, cured cucumber ginger, goma wakame, pickles and crispy shallots), Gift From The Garden (with miso aubergine, tofu, yuzu avo salad, 5-grain sushi rice, charred broccoli, edamame, pickles and crispy sahllots), and The Humble Chicken (den dashi chicken, five-grain sushi rice, umami mushrooms, shichimi mayo, spicy beansprouts, pickles and crispy shallots).
As well as the option to customise your own rice bowls, you’ll also be able to get dashi with udon noodles and a ramen egg. Omoide officially launches at the end of October but the doors are actually already open, so leave the sarnies behind and swing by for lunch.
