Most of the time, Japanese food in London is either ramen, very pricey sushi, or very crap sushi. Inko Nito is changing that. It’s a spacious, slick spot in Soho catering predominantly for walk-ins to eat Japanese/Korean fusion at a huge, many-sided counter. While it might have a casual set up, this place is a bit too expensive for a casual lunch. It’s worth it though. The food is filled with fresh flavours and textures that’ll make you wonder why you don’t eat like this more often. It’s also very pretty. We expected the highlight to be the meats, fishes, and vegetables cooked on a central robata grill. But, as good as the whisky glazed pork belly, and the grilled cauliflower with parmesan and panko crunch are, there are other items on the menu that excite us. For example: the black kampachi sashimi salad. It’s some of the best inexpensive raw fish we’ve had in London. It’s simple, it’s pretty, and it’s delicious. Meanwhile, the menu’s only dessert, a £5 bowl of charred coconut soft serve and granola, is enough in by itself to make Inko Nito a Soho destination.
