Last time I visited L'Etranger was years ago and I now I can't understand why. I went back and have to admit that the food is outstanding. I had forgotten how deliciously fusion the not-so-french menu was. Unlike so many other London restaurants that try the fusion-thing half heartedly, here you can tell that combination of unlikely flavours is well thought through. We had the menu degustation which included delicious tuna tartare (well seasoned), a tender and succulent Black Cod, Wagyu Beef and an aromatic yuzu (a tangy japanese citrus fruit) ice cream – which was a touch too sweet and creamy for me.
For next time my eye is on the following which I spotted at the next table: crispy Squid and scallops with shiso (that green spikey leaf you find under your sashimi) and shitake mushrooms. Not french at all – I like it a lot.
