Even the most committed connoisseur of all things Japanese will find something new to enjoy here. From tofu served on ice to fried lotus root buns to sake-matching menus. And then there’s the gobo: make the acquaintance of the tasty burdock root shredded in a thick chili-mayo dressing; it might be a stranger to you but its typical of Cocoro’s thoroughly atypical menu. Sushi and sashimi are fresh and beautifully presented, and even miso soup arrives in a large ceramic bowl instead of the usual plastic cup. It’s all watched over by an imposing wall of fine pottery worthy - like everything else on the menu of detailed inspection.

From the fresh flowers to the artisan china, personal touches are everywhere at this boutique-sized izakaya (a Japanese-style tapas bar). The just-for-you feeling carries through to the menu - a 'how to order' section and sake-tasting sets (with tasting notes and pickled nibbles) ensure optimum coverage of the food, which focuses on healthy, home-style seafood and veg dishes. Whet the palate with a wad of miso spinach and salty-sweet marinated carrot strips, then share firm pieces of kingfish with garlic mushroom slivers, or lotus and miso dumpling puffs, and finish with a fruit-chocolate Kahlua-infused fondue.
