01 Aug Nobu – Apertivo Fridays, Southbank
We came to try out Apertivo Fridays, which takes place every Friday from 5-7pm. After ordering a drink from the menu, a variety of ‘tapas’ are served while you enjoy your drink (hopefully with some company). Today’s offerings were white fish maki, kingfish sashimi, sweet and sour squid and vegetables, corn balls and miso black cod. Unsurprisingly, the black cod was the highlight of the five dishes being soft and wonderfully flavoured.
As my first experience of drinking sake, the Hokusetsu Junmai was quite good and I enjoyed it better than beer. The cocktail ordered tonight was the White Tsurai, consisting of TK40 Hokusetsu Sake, lychee, cranberry, a splash of chilli and Pimms. Most of what I tasted was the lychee, but it was refreshing nonetheless.
