Change has come to recently opened Ikoyi, the West African restaurant that opened in St James's Market last year. It's had some rave reviews - and we loved it too - but they've just made the decision to move to a mainly seafood menu, while keeping those West African flavours.
What does that mean for the food? Here's what you can expect:
- Octopus, Ndolé & Calçot
- Scallop, Ehuru, Burned Cream & Caviar
- Cuttlefish Miyan Taushe, Calf's Tongue & Sinasir
- Monkfish, Banga & Citrus Asaro
- Turbot Roasted on the Bone, Mbongo & Okra - to share
That amazing jollof rice is getting a change too. Instead of the bone marrow option (which we loved), you'll be getting Smoked Crab Jollof Rice which comes with a crab custard that you can mix in with the rice. To be honest, that does sound amazing, so we're less concerned about the loss of the marrow.
There are a few meat dishes on the menu still, mind. They include the Iberico Pork Suya dish, served with Hibiscus & Condiments and the Buttermilk Plantain & Smoked Scotch Bonnet stays on the menu too.
Where: St James's Market, St. James's, London SW1Y 4AH
When: The new menu is available now.
