Following its relaunch as a permanent restaurant in December, Soho’s Japanese-inspired Shackfuyu has announced a new private dining room for up to 16 guests.
Guests can select one of two set menus, or enjoy a bespoke menu created by head chef Ben Hughes. Shack classics including sweet, sticky and spicy Korean fried wings and the ever-popular aubergine with 4 miso and bubu arare feature on the £35 per person set menu, alongside new dishes including kare pan, a rabbit curry doughnut served with daikon mayo.
Other favourites from the Ã la carte menu, including prawn toast masquerading as okonomiyaki and iberico pork pluma, can be found on the £40 per person set menu with another of Shackfuyu’s recent menu additions, nama harumaki, a fresh spring roll made with Cornish crab.
Both menus culminate in one of the most talked about desserts of 2015: Shackfuyu’s signature Kinako French toast with soft-serve matcha ice cream.
The private room has been designed to be in-keeping with the palette of the main restaurant, combining dark grey walls, dark blue 1970s leather upholstered chairs and low hanging, industrial light fittings. The walls boast a collection of Japanese film and music posters.
