I had a lovely meal here. The squid for starter, and the fried chicken and chicken burger were really excellent. The lamb was really good as well – I love salt marsh lamb. We had issues over the amount of time it took us to get our mains, though they know why it happened and it’s something they can address. Less good was my friend’s steak, which was not very good to start with, and came out over-cooked. They made up for it in spades though, with free drinks, a replacement main course and a new steak.
We didn’t get to try the desserts, but the cocktails were good. I had a Tom Collins, which I think could have been a bit sweeter and lemony-er. The others I had a sip of were really excellent.

Please click below for the Sakagura Piccadilly Restaurant Review Podcast where I try out the Lobster Ramen in conjunction with Shoryu and a couple of other dishes.
I enjoyed the ramen, but thought it was a little expensive at full price, especially when you can go to Tonkotsu or Bone Daddies just a few minutes’ walk away.
The duck yakitori was lovely, especially with the sweet plum sauce counterbalanced with the sharp lemony spice rub. Also good were the pork gyoza, which were well cooked and delicate in flavour. I’m not sure that it’s as good as Roka, considering it’s about the same price, but it’s not too far away.

I have mixed feelings about Plaquemine Lock. I like the idea of Creole & Cajun food but I found the implementation rather hit & miss. Some of the food was really great, others didn’t deliver, either on taste, but mostly on value. The cocktails were very good, and pretty good value.

Blues Kitchen may be the restaurant I’ve been to most in London. I was a regular for lunch when I worked near one, and I really rate a lot of their food. I jumped at the chance to visit the Brixton Branch for a very special night on the 27th April 2017. Wayne Mueller of legendary Central Texas barbecue joint Louis Mueller Barbecue was doing a one night only cook. Wish I’d taken more pictures, but I was far too busy eating!

I enjoyed the meal at 50% 0ff, but I’m not sure I’d visit again, what with the cheer choice of places nearby. The food good, but a little expensive. Bear in mind I live locally, and I’m sure most of the clientele will be tourists browsing the market. The 50% off soft launch is on until Wednesday 26th April
