Sundays are made for relaxing; now I don’t know about you but no matter what I do during the week I love nothing more than waking up on a Sunday knowing that I’m going to unwind in the company of my favourite restaurant, with a hot coffee in my hands, a newspaper and some delicious food. I’m such a sucker for Sunday brunches.
Last month, ROKA has launched their fantastic Han Setto Sunday Brunch Menu in their Aldwich branch, to rival any in London in a relaxed and effortlessly cool setting on Aldwich street.
The open plan layout and large windows make this an ideal location for enjoying a vibrant part of London. ROKA is a perfect spot for brunch, pre-theatre or dinner and a great way to break up a day of wandering about Covent Garden. ROKA is fun and relaxed, with a real buzz about the place – the Bellini served on arrival and the unlimited wine when ordering from the Han Setto brunch menu is never a bad thing, especially for a Sunday in London.
‘Han’, a derivative of the Japanese word ‘gohan’, means ‘cooked rice’ or ‘meal’ and ‘setto’ refers to set menu. The Han Setto Brunch menu, exclusively available at ROKA Aldwych, is designed as an alternative for Londoners to the conventional Sunday brunch.
Staying true to the ROKA concept, dishes are designed to share. To start, a selection of dishes were brought to the table; dishes included the raw salmon, avocado and wasabi tobiko maki, beef, ginger and sesame dumplings and tomato salad with shiso and hijiki dressing.
For main course, we had a grilled skewer selection and sea bream – both were cooked to perfection. The icing on the cake was definitely their impressive dessert that was brought and presented at the table; a meticulous arrangement of exotic fruits, sorbets and ROKA classics – a real treat!
Han Setto Sunday Brunch is available from 12 noon until 8pm, priced at £39 per person, with Bellini on arrival; or at £55 per person and will also include red & white wine throughout your meal.
Thank you ROKA for looking after us! We’ll be definitely back soon.
