Slipping under the radar slightly, a new restaurant which is a fusion of Italian and Japanese cuisine has just opened its doors on Chancery Lane. On the menu at Aiko are bento and fresh curries during the day for around £10 (all available to take away too) and then the evening menu showcases the fusion a little more. For that, current dishes include:
- Robata of Beef with Scamorza, risotto with Sake and fresh truffle
- Crudo of Sea Bream with Buffalo Mozzarella and Pachino Tomato Sorbet.
Plus there's a tasting menu that changes regularly which is paired with wines, sherries and sake.
It all comes from sushi chef Tania Huillet and her husband, Chhay Eung who owned restaurants in Lyon before. Keeping it a family affair, the new restaurant sees them joining forces with Tania’s sister Aewia and her Italian husband Stefano.
