Last Wednesday was the birthday of one of my best friends so we decided to celebrate this together in style. London has many excellent and world class restaurants and Michelin starred Nobu had been on my to-go-to list ever since I moved here. It can be quite tricky to secure a booking for these kind of restaurants that are quite the magnet for the rich, famous and beautiful people but we managed to actually get a table for 9pm on her birthday. Ok 9pm is a bit later than my usual dinner time but this meal was worth waiting for!
After a lot of umm-ing and ahh-ing about what to order from their HUGE menu we decided to share some of their famous signature dishes.
To start we got the essential glass of champagne to say ‘cheers’ and happy birthday!
The beef was seared to perfection and the ponzu sauce with tiny dried garlic chips on top complimented the meat beautifully!
Up next the The Rock Shrimp Tempura with all sauces…
The black cod is marinated for 2-3 days in a sweet miso sauce which makes the fish sweet and caramelised out on the outside with a silky delicious texture on the inside. This one piece of fish will set you back £42 which is definitely not cheap for what you get, but we just couldn’t go to Nobu and not try their speciality delicacy dish and I must say it was very tasty!
To finish off we had the Chocolate Bento Box which contains a flourless chocolate fondant served with green tea ice cream.
Chocolate fondant is my favourite dessert ever…you can wake me up any time of the night for one of these babies! Nobu’s fondant was cooked to perfection with the chocolate oozing out on touch!! Trust me when I say this dessert disappeared within seconds!
I absolutely loved our evening at Nobu! If you ever find yourself at Nobu in London, or any of their restaurants worldwide then do be prepared to spend a bit of money because it is not cheap but I think if you can’t splurge out on birthdays, then when can you right? ;)
