Fabulous 100

Koy Shunka

Koy Shunka is a shining example of the newish MediterrAsian genre and indeed the new breed of Asian chefs in the city (particularly Japanese), who take delicate techniques from home and apply them to local products.

Ferran AdriĆ  was a vocal admirer of the style and emulated it at El Bulli. The dining room is beautiful, all dark grey slate, polished wood and zen-like vibes, but the best place to sit is at kappo-style counter to watch the masters at work, honing pristine plates of stone-seared prawns and peas, and hake cheek and shiso tempura.
