Black Cod & Wagyu in Soho is a pop-up restaurant inside Zelman Meats Soho, and it serves, you guessed it, black cod cooked in miso and Wagyu beef steaks. The driving idea behind it is to provide premium Japanese foods at an affordable price so that customers who might normally rule out these options can now indulge. Along with the two mains, there is a small collection of equally high-grade starters that are all worth trying. You can find Black Cod and Wagyu taking over the bar area of Zelman Meats Soho on St Anne’s Court in London. Open for lunch and dinner, we highly recommend advanced bookings as space is very limited.
Really enjoyed this place. We had the burrata and prawns to start, the cod and wagyu with cabbage and lobster rice sides and shared a chocolate tart after. Everything we ordered was delicious - especially impressed with the black cod and the cabbage side (fermented with garlic and chilli). We had a great bottle of Rioja too, and the total came to a reasonable £125. The service was excellent and atmosphere was good - definitley recommend!
You could argue that this is not 'true' Japanese wagyu but rather a wagyu breed from Australia. But then it wont be £20 for a 200g steak. still an extremely tasty cut, well marbled and very juicy, cooked with a crusty exterior so just the right combo. the lobster rice and croquette were also very tasty.
Great food and great service. The starters were awesome, my favourite was the beef tartare. The black cod and wagyu beef were delicious. And the service was great too. Our waiter was happy to take time to help us as much as possible
