Shackfuyu, London.

For my 25th birthday, the girls and I celebrated with the obligatory gal pal dinner date. Coinciding with International Women's Day, we had the most perfect girls' night gossiping up a treat, mulling over H&M Home purchases (Sophie's, of course) and having a general get-shit-done chat. It's been said a hundred times over on this blog but these girls always help me to set myself back on track, to recalibrate, in Sarah's words, and reinspire myself.
We chose Shackfuyu, a sister restaurant of our group favourites Bonedaddies and Flesh & Buns. A dining concept called Yoshoku food – a Japanese take on Western cuisine - I already knew I'd love it and I wasn't disappointed in the least.
Sarah and I met up first for a squish and natter and obligatory pep talk before being joined by the darling and ever witty Sophie.
Hannah and Lily joined us at the table and we proceeded - as always - to order almost the entirety of the menu. Group eating done right.
Shackfuyu is a tapas-style restaurant, where the dishes are all small(ish) and designed to share. I'm all about sharing food, as you well know! It's recommended to select 4-5 small dishes and 2-3 big dishes to share between a party of 5, FYI.

What we ordered:

  • Okonomiyaki prawn toast
  • 4 miso aubergine
  • Hot stone rice (Lily ordered it without beef for a veggie option!)
  • USDA beef short rib
  • Korean fried wings
  • Iberico pork pluma

      My personal favourites included the Okonomiyaki prawn toast, USDA beef short rib (!! SO damn good) and the Korean fried wings, although I honestly couldn't fault any of the dishes that we ordered, thanks to Hannah and her on-point food choice expertise. Whilst its a slightly pricer option for dinner, or indeed, lunch, I'd 100% label Shackfuyu a recommended London eating spot! I think I'll be headed back to take my brother and sister soon!
