Square Meal Review of Kurobuta Marble Arch ?

Kurobuta's "ear-splittingly loud" music, high-octane buzz and sock-it-to-'em flavours would startle purists, but we love Aussie chef Scott Hallsworth's "fantastically innovative" take on modern Japanese cuisine. The robata grill turns out signature steamed buns stuffed with BBQ pork belly, as well as tea-smoked lamb with spicy Korean miso and 'nasu' aubergines cooked to unctuous perfection. There are creative twists too (try the Jerusalem artichoke chopsticks with truffle ponzu dip), while the sushi chef discovers new flavours and textures in soft shell crab tempura maki with kimchi mayo. The 'junk food Japan' section of the menu brings miso-grilled chicken wings or a tuna sashimi pizza with chillis, but don't skip the 'significant others' such as Japanese mushrooms grilled on a hoba leaf with Gorgonzola, miso and pine nuts. This Marble Arch site is huge compared to the Chelsea original, but it's "really cool" and "always fabulous".

    S.W. Foodie :: Kurobuta Marble Arch | S.W.Foodies: Kurobuta Marble Arch

    So one of my girls has gone and got a rather beautiful sparkler on her finger (and a new job!). Already having a larger get together to celebrate with the men in our lives, last night called for a girlie catch up and a good try on look at that sparkler.

    Kurobuta has opened another fantastic restaurant in what I could call Connaught Village but it is often described as Marble Arch. Take a short walk past Mr Blair's house and you'll find it nestled in the quaint little village-y area which is a stones throw from Marble Arch itself.

    The interior is super sleek and effortless. Much bigger than...

    The Insatiable Eater :: The Insatiable Eater: Kurobuta Marble Arch: let's do the time warp

    Do you remember the late 80s? In Tokyo? No? It's pretty vague for me too, but if you take my hand and come with me to Kurobuta in Marble Arch, you'll time warp to find Aussie chef Scott Hallsworth recreating the excesses of the rampant consumerism of the bubble economy in the ludicrous ambitious pricing of his Japanese-ish restaurant. You'll find pricing as lofty as those Tokyo apartments (pre crash obvs) and nouvelle-ish portion sizing presented by fresh-from-Sydney staff. The space is pretty relaxed with a mash up of Aussie culture in the music (early 90s indie-punk Ratcat?) and the posters (umm, Warwick Capper,...

    Dips Dines :: Kurobuta; Glad the Pop Up Lived On | Dips Dines

    Having dined at the Kings Road pop-up last year and very much enjoyed it, I naturally wanted to give the new Connaught Village (Marble Arch) branch of Kurobuta a try, especially with it being just 5 mins away from home.

    There’s not much to remark on the restaurant’s exterior – messages are scrawled in marker pen on the windows which is pretty unsightly to be perfectly honest. Inside, the space is large and has a relaxed and informal vibe, albeit with a slightly cold look. Expect rustic wooden tables, grey walls and plenty of exposed bulb lighting, a common theme apparently for most ‘trendy’ restaurants...

    Connie Consumes :: Kurobuta, Marble Arch | Connie Consumes

    Most Londoners already know the Kurobuta backstory- opened by Aussie Scott Hallsworth of Nobu fame, it started life as a pop up, was successful enough to find a permanent home in Chelsea where it clearly excelled because a Marble Arch branch then followed. Being fairly new to town, it only caught my attention at Taste of London Winter where we had those killer lamb chops. It was whilst still licking my fingers that I made a mental note to try this place out...

    The Insatiable Eater :: Kurobuta Marble Arch

    I really think you need local knowledge when looking for places to eat in Asia so I&m here to give you some. Hing Kee in Hong Kong (has quite a ring to it dontcha think?) is one of the best restaurants that you probably don&t know about. I&m not a HK local but I tapped into the taste buds of the best there when I had a short stopover en route to Japan on a recent holiday. I came across Hing Kee via a HK-based Instagrammer that I follow (hey Little Meg!) who went there with some friends and had what looked like an incredible meal. I saw some pics of an amazing crab dish that just screamed, "eat me"! It&s...

    Mondo Mulia :: Mondomulia Kurobuta London

    Kurobuta is a contemporary Japanese bar & grill founded in 2013 by Australian Chef Scott Hallsworth (ex Head Chef at Nobu). The all-day menu of tapas-style dishes is inspired by the Izakayas of Japan and by Scott’s passion for pushing gastronomic boundaries and giving Japanese classics a contemporary, sometimes Western, twist.
    &I want to rave about the food, because that combination of sugar and salt and umami and smoke – punched through with Korean high notes of kimchi (chilli-fermented cabbage) and their famous garlicky chilli sauce the colour of fresh arterial blood – is insanely delicious. It’s compelling....

Scott Hallsworth

From small town Western Australia to Nobu Park Lane is a big leap, but chef Scott Hallsworth has more than proved his worth. He spent seven years with Nobu itself, opening its Melbourne branch, before returning to launch the short-lived Wabi in Sussex. Happily, he has found his voice at Kurobuta, the happening Chelsea ‘izakaya’ grown out of a 2013 pop-up. A second branch in Marble Arch and a members-only saké bar Ramusake followed in 2014.
