Roka for Mother’s day

Another Mother’s Day has come and gone but my mum is still the same – the most supportive and amazing mum I could ever ask for.

This year, as luck would have it, all my siblings were in town to celebrate. As the ‘expert’ on restaurants (I have no idea how I got this title!), I was given the task of finding an appropriate placeΒ for dinner.

Having heard so much about Roka, I couldn’t help but suggest this and I was definitely not disappointed! I normally only do food reviews on restaurants that I really love so that says something I think πŸ˜› The service was on point, quality of the food was great and everything was delicious and full of flavour. The dark chocolate and green tea pudding was heaven on a plate!

The only criticism I had was that the restaurant was a little dark (ambience going a bit too far for me as it meant some of my photos were a little grainy but other than that, I had no complaints).

Roka has fourΒ branches in London; Canary Wharf, Aldwych,Β Charlotte Street and Mayfair. So, if you’re looking for a nice place for dinner in central London and want to literally have a flavoursome party in your palette, then go to Roka!

Baechu kim chi napa in garlic & hot chilli (a little strong in flavour so be warned – not everyone liked this so probably an ‘acquired’taste type thing)

Sashimi – so fresh! Definitely my favourite starter.

I’ve forgotten what this was called but it was strawberry flavoured and non-alcoholic.

Serious foodie moment

Peanut, vanilla and chocolate sundae, sesame poki sticks (this was good but a bit too rich for my liking)

Cotton soft cheesecake, robata grilled pear, cream cheese ice cream (the ice cream was so good but the actual cheese cake was a bit like a sponge which wasn’t ideal)
