Squaremeal Review of Yama Momo ?

From the owners of Tsunami in Clapham, Yama Momo has “injected a touch of real glamour into the East Dulwich scene” – according to one fan who reckons it “stands shoulder to shoulder with some of the best in the West End”. Like its siblings, this place offers a modern take on Japanese cuisine, with “amazing sushi” and “delicious, delicate flavours” across the board. A “proper bar” keeps the drinkers happy, while the best seats in the house are in the dining area down some steps at the back. Recent standouts have included grilled scallops in a creamy whisky sauce with hints of masago (capelin fish roe), truffled rib-eye steak and the ubiquitous black cod in sweet miso, but the menu also takes in everything from chicken gyoza and yellowtail tartare with quail’s egg in wasabi ponzu to shrimp tempura, lamb cutlets dressed with Korean kimchi and various sizzling teriyaki specials. Inviting wines and cocktails too.

Our table this time was just off the bar area which was fine although the better tables are...
