Executive chef Peter Lloyd will be joined by the Doha venue’s sushi chef Mohamed Didi for the occasion.
Sushi Bar @ Spice Market will offer popular items from Doha such as crispy shredded crab, spicy tuna, shrimp tempura and the signature Spice Market roll.
“Having personally witnessed the success and passion that goes into the wildly popular Sushi Programme at Spice Market Doha, I’m excited to bring that energy and imagination to London.
“The creative sushi we are developing will complement perfectly the modern twists on classic dishes of Southeast Asia that Spice Market London has been recognised for over the years,” Lloyd told BigHospitality.
There will also be a selection of classic sushi and sashimi, including BBQ eel (unagi), tuna (maguro), salmon (sake) and shrimp (ebi).
On the drinks side, the menu will feature a selection of beers and sake cocktails, including a sake-infused Cucumber Ginger Punch made with cucumber, ginger, mint and Akitabare ‘Koshiki Junzukuri’ – a dry sake with a mixture of earthy notes.
Spice Market’s drinks menu also includes a Spicy Thai Mary, Ginger Margarita and Kumquat Mojito, as well as beers from Tiger, Asahi, Singha, and Kingfisher.
Based in the W London Leicester Square hotel, Spice Market was created by Michelin-starred chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten to recreate the street food scene he witnessed during his Asian travels, and is the sister restaurant of New York’s Spice Market.
The venue’s interiors mix the ethnic old world feel of Spice Market New York and the contemporary architecture of the new building on Leicester Square.
Featuring shades of gold, copper, chrome and wood, the design includes a 24 metre-long wall of colours, flavours and fragrances representing the dishes served at Spice Market, as well as over 600 wok lamps.
Set over two floors, the venue also has a cocktail lounge and private room which can accommodate 40 people.
