Kibou – Battersea

Sushi lovers, “maki” your way to SW London 🍣 {press meal}

Last week, I took a trip to stunning Japanese spot @kiboulondon. Here’s what I thought:

🍣 Yasai moriawase – 17 pieces of sushi
🤷🏼‍♀️Order again? Yes – a good, fresh selection but, as with most vegan sushi, I wish they’d pushed the boat out more. There’s so much amazing veg that would work well e.g. mushrooms, or some vegan fish subs 🐟 Also would’ve loved a drizzle of sauce / mayo on top

🍛Veg katsu curry w/ panko fried veg, steamed rice, pickles & homemade sauce
🤷🏼‍♀️Order again? No. Liked the sauce but wanted more of it and while I loved some of the veg (espesh the courgette), there was too much / it felt a bit heavy on fried items

🌱Agedashi tofu w/ warmed tempura sauce, toasted nori, spring onion & mooli
🤷🏼‍♀️Order again? Yes. Loved that rhe tofu was both silky & crunchy and soaked up the flavoursome broth. The toppings added subtle flavour
🏆Fave dish

🌱Pumpkin korroke topped w/ tonkatsu sauce, sriracha mayo & aonori
🤷🏼‍♀️ Order again? Yes. Little heavy on mayo but I liked them

🍆Nasu dengaku – charred aub w/ sweet miso glaze, sesame & spring onions
🤷🏼‍♀️Order again? Yes. Miso flavour was strong, aub was soft & silky

🌱Bao bun w/ mushroom tempura, tonkatsu sauce, cabbage & homemade pickles
🤷🏼‍♀️Order again? Yes. Shrooms were so meaty

💭Overall, I enjoyed the food, the venue is stunning, staff are friendly and helpful. Prices are a tad spenny but for the experience, I think it’s justified. I’d go back!
