We had dinner at Cho Cho San the day before Valentine’s Day (yes I’ve been sitting on this post for 2 months now). It was showing up on my Instagram feed a bit and the dishes looked amazing so we were keen to try it out.
We arrived pretty early (having headed there straight after work) and I liked the white, minimalist decor – it really brought light and space to what is otherwise a long, window-less corridor.
Cho Cho San was just OK. I don’t think it was deserving of all that hype it was receiving late last year. The meal was quite dear and even though we ordered 6 dishes between the two of us and it was one of the most expensive meals we’ve had, neither of us were full. The Mongolian had two scoops from Anderson Ice Creamery on our way back to the station. Some of the dishes definitely sound quite Gucci with its Japanese name ingredients, but in reality, it didn’t taste all that spectacular and I think could do with some tweaking.
