Richard De La Cruz, formerly of Spain’s two-Michelin-starred Sergi Arola and three-Michelin-starred Quique Dacosta restaurants, is behind the set menu at Honi Poke.
The restaurant offers a choice of flame-torched octopus, tuna, salmon and tofu paired with sticky rice and ingredients such as salty mango, seaweed and mushrooms from £6.30 a bowl.
Diners can create their own flavour combinations, or choose from four set options created by De La Cruz to eat in or takeaway.
The chef’s menu includes octopus with kimchi, chive, togarashi, sunomono cucumber, red chilli and kimchi sauce; and tuna or salmon with salty mango, sunomono cucumber, nori seaweed, kimchi, chive, crispy onion and chilli garlic sauce.
Honi Poke is the brainchild of Kosta Varesko and Vladimir Martynov, the duo behind American grill and event business SkewerU.
The restaurant is now open at 82 Dean Street, Soho.
