Roka Akor Review
 
4 Star Rating
4 June 2016Roka AkorTags: San Francisco, USA, Sushi reviewsThe Bill: £72 per head
 

Rako Akor is a large, open-plan Japanese restaurant, it has a light, airy decor, offering a fairly casual dining experience. There is a bustling environment, and guests have the privilege of overlooking the charcoal grill as the chefs work their craft. The service is friendly, the Sushi is creative, and it certainly doesn’t disappoint. We’d definitely recommend a visit if you’re in San Francisco.

We started our evening with an aperitif, two glasses of Taittinger, La Française, Champagne, France, NV, a wonderful champagne and a great start to our evening. Whilst browsing the menu we enjoyed a plate of Spicy Edamame, with Fresh Chili and Lime. The perfect dish to get you in the mood and excited for the cuisine ahead.

To begin, we sampled a couple of Sushi plates, I ordered the Seared Salmon Roll with Snow Crab and Honey Miso, I have to say the Honey Miso was simply divine and completed this creation wonderfully. My Partner ordered the California Roll, with Snow Crab and Tabiko, another fine choice, the California Roll was delicious.

“Chef Roman Petry has certainly created a menu well worth exploring.”

For our main course we decided to dip into the Robata Grill selection, I ordered the Madagascar Tiger Prawns, with Yuzu Koshu Chili and Lemon, the flavours were simply exquisite, and the dish was well presented. My partner opted for the 3 Lamb Chops, with Korean Spices and Smoked Eggplant Salad. The Lamb Chops were delicious, the Korean spices and seasoning completed this dish perfectly.

Our chosen wine for the evening was a bottle of 2013, Nero D’Avola, Tasca D’Almerita, Lamuri, Sicilia DOC, Italia. An intense ruby red wine with aromas of dark fruits, vanilla, tobacco, and wild herbs.

Chef Roman Petry has certainly created a menu well worth exploring, each dish and each mouthful was a joy to experience. We recommend Rako Akor, whether you’re a lover of Japanese cuisine, or not, you will not be disappointed.
