Aqua has long been one of my favourite restaurant groups, I’ve had several birthdays at Aqua Kyoto London, afternoon tea at sister restaurant Aqua Shard and several fantastic meals at Chinese counterpart, Hutong. In fact, I’m such a big fan that I’ve even eaten in their Hong Kong restaurant AND been on the boat, Aqua Luna. Which is why I couldn’t be more excited to be collaborating with them to thank my lovely readers with a competition to win dinner at Aqua Kyoto London. Make sure to scroll to the end of this post for details on how to win.
Located in the hub of London’s West End on Argyll Street, Aqua Kyoto is the perfect place for a top night out. Guests enter via the iconic bar, Aqua Spirit and choose one of the signature cocktails to enjoy on one of London’s best roof terraces.
With clear views of London’s landmarks and a terrace that wraps around the restaurant, there are very few other places in London quite like it!
The interior of Aqua Kyoto is just super sexy; black and red with a central sushi counter where you can watch the chefs at work under an artful red lantern.
For this competition I’ll be giving away an Experience menu for two, featuring a selection of Chef Paul Greening’s finest dishes. I was lucky enough to meet Chef Paul when I tried Aqua Kyoto’s famous infinity brunch – a former micro biologist, he injects science into his food to create unique and innovative cuisine.
The Experience menu kicks off with a glass of sake that can be served hot or cold before a little bit of the theatre at the table. The spinach salad with toasted sesame and goma dressing is prepared table side and combined to create this famous dish.
The chef selects the finest fish of the day to go into the sashimi selection, which is presented beautifully on our table. On the night we came in we tried salmon, tuna, yellowtail, sea bass, sea bream and scallop served with fresh wasabi from Japan.
I’m a huge fan of the handmade soba noodles at Aqua Kyoto and this big bowl between two is almost like a warm hug. Containing fresh crab and mentaiko with bonito flakes on top, it’s just full of flavour and so perfectly prepared.
Mr S’s absolute favourite course is the lamb cutlets, cooked beautifully with a good hit of chilli and served with tomato miso. I’m a good wife and let him have three of the four.
The sushi course showcases spring vegetables with asparagus rolls wrapped in skins, uniquely prepared with mango or beetroot.
The dessert on the Experience menu is a chocoholic’s dream! A delice served with sesame praline, kaki fruit sorbet and ginger wafters is the perfect finish to an incredible meal at Aqua Kyoto.
And if that wasn’t enough, coffee and petit fours are the final touch.
