SquareMeal Review of Koya City

This sequel to acclaimed udon bar Koya has landed in the slick Bloomberg Arcade three years after the much-missed original closed in Soho. The relaxed space is a lesson in Japanese minimalism, with bright lights, wooden interiors and a pulsing soundtrack that wouldn’t be out of place in a high-end boutique. A blackboard of daily specials will suit the clientele of regular diners that is bound to build up, but there’s also lots of interest on the impressive à la carte, from small plates of melt-in-the-mouth cider-spiked pork belly and must-try puffy-battered prawn heads to the star turn of udon noodle broths. Cold udon with a hot broth is the way to go; we’d recommend tender duck in a spicy broth, perfectly paired with thick, silky udon. To drink, there is wine and beer alongside an extensive selection of saké. All-day opening, counter seating and no reservations make Koya City a great shout for a quick, affordable bite and solo dining.
