If you’ve read my original Kurobuta post, you probably know how much of a fan I was of their King’s Road pop-up. Flashforward to less than a year later and Kurobuta has found a permanent home on the King’s Road.
I was always planning to visit the new restaurant but I guess I was also bracing myself for a change in style. After all, the location was once the slick Sushinho and so I think I ended up holding off for a short while. But word of mouth soon caught up with me and I realised that I was a fool not to check it out at least.
The cocktails are also very good. Sadly Kurobuta’s website doesn’t have its drinks menu on it (or perhaps I can’t find it), so I can’t tell you what this is. But the likelihood is you’ll like anything you order. It’s a good-looking menu.
The mochi ice cream is always a lovely way to end the meal here; refreshing, flavoursome and I just love the texture.
I’m starting to feel like this is an exciting time for the King’s Road with regards to restaurants and bars, and Kurobuta is definitely one of the reasons there is a renewed sense of optimism in the air. I love it.
