Omoide

OPENED 20 DAYS AGO

Japanese restaurant Omoide opens its doors in Bermondsey.

After working in some of the most celebrated Michelin-starred kitchens (Trinity in London and Eleven Madison Park in NYC), chef Angelo Sato ventures out on his own with the opening of Omoide.

The Spot:

Taking inspiration from his roots and Japan’s multi-course dining experience “kaiseki”, Omoide focuses on Shokuji, a meal consisting of rice, pickles and soup. Here, the Japanese dish gets some modern European flair with Michelin-starred-techniques, but it’s certainly not fancy schmancy dining. Omoide is a casual grab-and-go concept, aiming to make top-quality Japanese food accessible for everyone.

The Food:

While you can customize your own rice bowl, we think you should trust this man with his well-thought-out combinations. Signature dishes include yuzu-spiked salmon, top[ed with avocado, cured cucumber, sushi ginger and crispy shallots, or “The Humble Chicken”, made with dashi-braised chicken (a Japanese broth rich in unami flavour), umami mushrooms, shichimi mayo and spicy beansprouts. That Japanese broth is particularly more-ish, so you can also enjoy it as a side dish with udon noodles.

The Drinks:

Omoide serves a selection of Asian soft drinks, including Oolong Tea and Pocari Sweat.

The Damage:

Signature bowls are priced at £7.95-£9.95; side dishes vary between £2.95 and £6.60.

In a Nutshell:

The trio of rice, pickles and soup is well and truly loved in Japan, enjoyed at the breakfast table at home to fancy fine-dining restaurants at night. Having experience in both settings, chef Sato brings both traditional Japanese flavours and Michelin-starred skills to Omoide.
