Square Meal Review of Kopapa ?

Providores pioneer and fusion crusader Peter Gordon is the brains behind this informal all-day eatery – a showcase for ideas and flavours gleaned from travels around the globe. Highlights from the eclectic, regularly changing menu might range from crisp tempura ‘pockets’ stuffed with richly spiced dhal inari (served with caramelised coconut and pickled papaya) to plantain, feta and sweet-potato tortilla with pomegranate labneh and pea shoots. Elsewhere, flaky pan-fried cod arrives on a bed of creamy haricot beans with vanilla butter sauce for a surprising sweet lift. Switched-on staff help to create a ‘lively atmosphere’, though tables are tightly packed and service can creak at peak times. Weekend brunch, with its punchy chorizo hash and top-notch coffees, has become a regular pilgrimage for many diners, who are also lured by the first-rate drinks selection.

    Something different if you feel like having something hearty but not a traditional English breakfast

    London Grump :: Dinner at Kopapa, Seven Dials

    Kopapa is a sort of fusion (aka fridge raid) restaurant from the man behind the highly praised yet slightly pricey Providores in Marylebone. The New Zealander is famed for his eclectic cooking, bringing together ingredients and techniques from far flung corners of the globe and putting them on tiny little plates in London town. Kopapa is a little edgier than most of its surrounding restuarants, and is bizarrely loud. Something which, on my first visit for an obscenely hungover brunch, I found entirely horrifying. At dinner time though it didn’t seem so much of a problem...

    Brunch etc. :: More Kopapa (cocktail time!)

    I've reviewed Kopapa before, but I came back the other week for some pre-Christmas party drinks (because that's always a good idea...) and the food and cocktails were so great that I feel obliged to spread the word again! In addition to copious amounts of wine, and a few choice beverages from the very festive cocktail list (which features such delights as Christmas pudding martinis and hot buttered rum shots ), we sensibly ordered a few small plates to share...

    Caviar Girl :: Kopapa

    Boasted about by my friends from NZ, Kopapa could’ve been just another case of their patriotic love affair with all things New Zealand. But Kiwis have been spoilt with their countries’ majestic landscapes, laid back lifestyle and good quality wine, and as such, tend to have a good nose for simple quality. And Kopapa, the baby of New Zealand born Peter Gordon, is one of these quality places which bring world inspired cuisine to the table. It is beautifully executed and served in a laid back environment, which is often the feel of many Southern Hemisphere eateries.Small plates are taking over the London dining scene and Kopapa's menu is no exception. We were advised that two plates per person will make a filling lunch.  Roast pork belly on fried sweet potato dumplings chilli pickled plums with hot & sour coconut jus   £8.80Going for a selection of smaller plates to start with which included the roast pork belly (pictured above £8.80), I also opted for a “main” size plate of grain fed sirloin (Pictured below £20).For a bite sized portion of pork belly it definitely delivered on all fronts:  crispy and salty at the top while super moist and juicy throughout. The slightly sour plums were a great innovation to the common apple sauce, and made for a great taste contrast with the sweet potato and the pork on one forkful. Amazing!Teriyaki Casterbridge grain-fed sirloin with cep gnocchi, red wine button onions, soy beans & smoked garlic £20.00The sirloin came out disguised cut as a “fillet” (fat and round), and for a moment I forgot that this steak is cut from the rear back portion of the cow i.e a lot denser and firmer in texture. Cutting into the meat, it proved to be cooked beautifully to medium rare, and was well complimented by the teriyaki jus. The mushroom gnocchi was slightly lost on the taste buds, but overall this dish was an absolute pleasure to devour!Original Beans Piura Criollo grand cru 75% dark chocolate fondant with green tea & hazelnut praline nougat glace £8.00Dessert was a bit of a tossup between the boiled orange and almond cake and the passion fruit brûlée, but 75% dark chocolate fondant was just not to be passed up. Warm gooey chocolate oozed out of the perfectly formed chocolate crust. It was a divine guilty pleasure. Overall what an experience. The staff were knowledgeable about the menu, were attentive and happy to oblige. I'm sure the pictures alone will entice you to try this place.  Peter Gordon now has a book out, check it out. It was my secret santa present  Thanks for reading :)
