When I first walked into Roka in 2005, I thought I had seen it all before. Trendy restaurant with attractive staff, overpriced food and an air of pretention. Then after time, the buzz goes, the column inches rapidly diminish and the crowd moves on to the next place to ‘see and be seen’. As I was seated at the wooden counter around the robata grill with a cold Asahi I slowly realised this was not one of those places. I have returned many times since and still five years later and is still just as popular as before. I have had many memorable dishes at Roka, most notably the terrific suckling pork belly, shiso sauce and hijiki, Korean lamb chops, Foie Gras and the unforgettable black cod. Stunning. Upon my most recent to Roka I started to explore the Sushi and Sashimi and was not dissaponted. Roka seems to be able to contuinue to produce exciting food and in my experience entirely reliable for a quick bite or a work-your-way-around-the-entire-menu-because-nobody-is-rushing-you experience. Highly reccomended.
