Bone Daddies opened Shackfuyu as a permanent restaurant on Old Compton Street after the success of the pop-up. They describe themselves as serving Yōshoku food or Western-inspired Japanese soul food. In reality, the small plates served here are very loosely Japanese. Pan-Asian would have been a more apt but perhaps dull description. On the taste front however, Shackfuyu excels with delightfully interesting plates such as the Iberico Pork Pluma with black pepper Miso and the Octopus tacos. Save space for the excellent French toast with Matcha ice-cream at the end. They have a number of Sakes to try including Sake tastings for those uninitiated to this acquired taste. There are also a limited number of wines and pre-bottled cocktails for the less adventurous.
The space is sizeable and it can be a bit loud and dark but if you’re on a night out with friends, don’t have a reservation and want some delicious modern Asian food on a modest budget, Shackfuyu is a solid choice.
