Yuu Kitchen

Yuu Kitchen is a rather funky, modern East London joint. The decor is uber cool, with Manga style art on the walls, and bird cages.hanging overhead. Inspired by the fusion of flavours of South-East Asia and the Pacific Rim, the menu is mouth watering.

img_4934Sitting at the bar overlooking the chefs table is great, as you can watch the theatrics of the food being flame cooked on the big green egg BBQs.

img_4882img_4913How have we not tried Bubble tea before? It’s brilliant! The lemon, iced green tea have pearls that burst in your mouth to release a juice that tantalises the taste buds.

img_4850The Vietnamese vegetarian Ssam is a lettuce wrapped deep fried spring roll packed full of corn, mushrooms and noodles, with a sweet chilli sauce. The crunch from the spring roll and the texture of the crisp lettuce makes it ever so pleasing to the palate.

img_4854The sweet and sticky eggplant with wok fried white miso glaze, crunchy shallots and sesame is served piping hot. And when I say hot, I mean scorching hot! After letting it cool down, it’s crisp on the outside and just melts in the mouth.

img_4906The BBQ’d Octopus braised with sake, mirin and soy with a ginger and garlic sauce is lifted by he sprinkling of coriander.
