Dinner after the theatre is a well-desired treat. If the play is good you can discuss the inner meanings and if it is bad you have earned your supper.
Kopapa is ideally situated for a post Donmar meal and last night, after having seen Harold Pinter’s Moonlight, I had earned supper for the next millennium. The play was an insult to my intelligence and as my guest said ‘you might as well tape record you conversations at home and pretend that is a play’. I am a great fan of the Donmar but this was a complete waste of time.
So our 9pm table could not have come quick enough. I’m of an age that I can still get goose bumps remembering the opening week of Sugar Club and the arrival of the term ‘Fusion’ cooking to the London scene by Peter Gordon.
Kopapa’s informal, café style atmosphere works well and on the whole he delivers with some interesting cross-border-combos – the ‘Master stock pork belly on shiitake & ginger congee with sweet chilli glaze’ was delicious although I could have done with a bigger portion. Good set of summery salads that are livened up with various ingredients. Mains are a tenner so worth ordering a few and share. Good list of new world wines, as you would expect. All in all most enjoyable and we concluded, after two bottles of Kiwi Pinot, that we would return to Kopapa but never to Pinter.
