Kurobuta Marble Arch: let's do the time warp
|Kurobuta: wagyu sliders £19|
I mentioned the food was good, and it generally is. Our friendly Aussie waiter, Seano, suggested six courses for lunch since we weren't hugely hungry. We ended up ordering seven, but weren't stuffed by the time we left. Seano was helpful throughout and I appreciated the staggered serving of dishes rather than the usual serve-when-it's-ready style to most "tapas" places (Seano's words, not mine).

The best dish of lunch was probably the aubergine "Nasu Dengaku; Sticky Miso Grilled Aubergine with Candied Walnut". For the more bargainous price of £8.50, the aubergine (and frankly with the pedigree of the place it should be called eggplant) was well cooked with none of the fibrous chewiness that under cooking can leave you with. The crunchy textures from the walnuts were a nice touch. "How'd that go down?" the waitress (not Seano) asked. Very well indeed was the reply.
