Shackfuyu Pop Up in Bermondsey

IMG_0609

While the Soho site on Old Compton Street is being refurbished, fans of Shackfuyu won’t need to miss out on their favourite food.  Shackfuyu is doing a residency in Bermondsey.  In case you find yourself struggling to find this new location, the team has put signs to help you along the way.  It is located in one of the archways.  You will have to go pass a storage place, small parking lot and laundromat before getting there.

Upon you arrival, you will find the familiar modern kitsch Oriental inspired decor.  There is a mixture of bar stools, smaller tables and communal tables to cater for different groups.

The drinks list and food menu consists of items from the original menu plus a few new items added for the season.

On a cold, rainy and windy day, my efforts in trekking through urban jungle to the archway was rewarded with delicious sukiyaki style wagyu picanha.  It is the perfect winter dish where thin slices of raw wagyu beef and onion are placed on a heated hot pot with a soy based sauce that gets poured in before you are asked to mix the meat around in its pot.  The accompanying sauce of ponzu dressing with raw egg yolk takes your taste buds to the next level.  As the food stays in the hot pot, the onions develop a caramelised flavour.

Side dish of broccoli tender stems with wafu dressing was also flavoursome and compliments the sukiyaki.

Unfortunately, there was not enough room for dessert this time. It gives me a reason to come back for the kinako french toast served with matcha flavoured soft serve ice cream. The guys will be at Bermondsey for three weeks on Friday evenings and all day on Saturday.  So don’t miss out if you want pop by for visit.

Better Late than Never

I love talking about good food and places to be.  I also love all things that are beautiful and capturing snapshots of them.

The idea of setting up a blog to capture my thoughts and all things I love has been planted in my mind for a very long time. It was probably ingrained in my subconscious.  Over the years, friends have encouraged me to start up a blog.  I have bumped into people at parties who asked if I have a blog or have I thought about starting one and why not?  I have always shrugged and laughed it off. I don’t have the perfect writing style.  My photography skills need improving.  I don’t have time.  A blog  would require a lot of work. It would affect my privacy. The list goes on.

The truth is the idea of starting a blog is daunting.  Where does one begin? Which platform?  What would I call it?  The options are endless.  After months of procrastinating and a little brainstorming, I have finally reached a light bulb moment.  It’s now or never.  This is where I come to share my thoughts and adventures on beauty, food, wine and travels.

Thank you my dear friends for giving me the nudge to embark on this beautiful journey.  Cheeky Bellini is going on her maiden voyage!
