Modern, artistically presented pan-Asian small plates are the specialty of Foley’s in Soho. The 70-seat space includes a chef’s counter, dining room clad with rough whitewashed brick, and a walk-up bar facing out to the street. The menu includes vegan options, noodle dishes, salads, and under “bits and bobs” a matchstick wing seasoned with fish sauce. Items that could complement an order or two of the wings include the aromatic duck buns, a green papaya salad with peanuts, chili tamarind and lime, and the crab meat fried rice. Standouts among the more substantial offerings include a duck curry with lychee and aubergine, and pad thai with a choice of vegetable, chicken or prawns. The cocktail and mocktail lists are enticing in their creativity too.

Akira, a restaurant specializing in sushi, robata and donabe dishes, is on the ground floor of Kensington’s Japan House London. The venue is one of three nationwide established by the Japanese Ministry of Foreign Affairs as a center for Japanese culture at its most innovative. At Akira, namesake and chef Shimizu Akira has designed a dining experience around the concept of three principles – food, tableware and presentation – together in perfect balance. The culinary element of this trinity embraces big-ticket items like kobe beef and pristine sashimi, but don’t overlook less showy items like the chicken wing skewers. Seasoned simply with natural salt and lemon then cooked over the robata charcoal grill, they’re a serious contender for the best wings in London.
