This easily ranks high on the bizarre scale; black rice cooked in a sour vegetable and pickled ginger broth, Parmesan cheese, cream and butter are incorporated into the ‘risotto’ then a combination of soya sauce, mirin and sesame oil is added after the grains have absorbed all that zaniness. Sounds crazy, but this was our standout favourite from a night of amazing hits!

The sour broth was distinct, yet not overpoweringly infused into the chewy black grains. The cheesiness comes in after, distinctly different from the lingering taste of sour broth but somehow fitting in perfectly. Fresh seafood and vegetables helps to round out a very flavourful dish – something I’d definitely return for!
