Shack-Fuyu offers Izakaya-style dining for Japanese comfort food in a relaxed, bi-level setting with a counter bar. Located on Old Compton Street so in the heart of Soho, Shack-Fuyu is from the team behind Bone Daddies and Flesh and Bun. They serve Western-inspired Japanese dishes. I absolutely love Japanese food and above all Shack-Fuyu is one of my favourite restaurants in London.
I especially love their Sunday bottomless brunch. For just £39 you can enjoy a cocktail, unlimited small sharing plates, a main, dessert and bottomless drinks. The bottomless drinks include choice between white wine, red wine or prosecco, however I usually go for the prosecco. For the small plates, I particularly recommend the prawn toast, the Chashu pork bun, the crispy duck bun and the Korean wings. For the large plates/mains, I usually go for the teriyaki salmon however the Iberico pork and beef fillet are both amazing as well as the hot stone rice. Lastly, the dessert is one of my all-time favourites in London, Kinako French toast with soft-serve matcha ice cream. The french toast is crunchy and sweet on the outside moreover super soft and gooey on the inside.
Shack-Fuyu also offers an omakase menu which is very similar to the brunch. At either £40 or £45 per person, there is a lot of amazing dishes as part of the set menu.
To sum up, I really recommend Shack-Fuyu as the food is fantastic. Furthermore, the bottomless brunch and omakase are great value for the quality of food offered.
