Mid-October sees the arrival of a new Japanese neighbourhood restaurant to King’s Cross.
Wazen, which means ‘Japanese table’, will bring Londoners an authentic Japanese experience, serving high quality and authentic Japanese cuisine for both lunch and dinner at a price that will ensure both the locals and Japanese food lovers will keep coming back for more.
The food at Wazen will be overseen by head chef Toshimasa Tanahashi who comes via the kitchens of Japanese restaurants Matsuri in St James, Kyubi at the Arts Club in Mayfair and Kouzu in Belgravia. The menu includes an extensive choice of Japanese starters, sashimi, tempura, sushi rolls and mains. Dishes such as spicy tuna tartare, chicken kakinotane, stone bass with tomato ume and yuzu shio ponzu are representative of the unique style of Japanese cuisine available. The front of house team will be headed up by Kenichiro Urata, who most recently led the team at cult central London Japanese ramen restaurant Kanada-Ya.
Wazen will offer a comfortable dining experience allowing customers to explore and learn about Japanese cuisine. Friendly and knowledgeable staff will guide guests through the menu, recommending complementary dishes and drink pairings. Lunch will be a more relaxed affair with dishes ranging from £8 – £18 and a special Bento box set lunch offering great value for local workers and residents.
Wazen will also feature one of the widest ranges of premium sakes in London. Many of these will be available by the glass and carafe. Wazen will also feature ‘kikizake’, a tasting flight of three sakes allowing customers to sample unique and rare sake from all across Japan.
To celebrate their opening, Wazen will be offering guests a complimentary kikisake tasting flight between 29/09/15 – 10/10/15. Sign up here for more information.
