July saw the much awaited opening of Kitcho, a family run Japanese restaurant, at 57 Greenwich High Road. Owners Nicole and Andy Zhang, whose hugely successful Aji Ichiban was rated in the 10 best Japanese restaurants in London by Culture Trip, have re-opened their doors to loyal followers by setting up Kitcho.
With long-time and loyal head chef Jimmy, Kitcho has an outstanding menu of traditional and fusion Japanese dishes – fresh fish and sea food, maki & temaki style sashimi, spicy tuna and dragon dishes. Jimmy sources all the food daily from Japanese suppliers and makes all his own sauces and dressings at the open kitchen bar.
The food is so beautifully presented that it’s almost a shame to taste it. But make no doubt once you do you will be hooked. This local gem is here to stay and, with over 20 different sakes to try, you’ll need to work your way methodically through the menu over successive visits.
With reasonable prices, Kitcho is set to be one of the Ashburnham Triangle’s destination restaurants, open from 3pm to midnight, 7 nights a week, at 57 Greenwich High Road SE10 8JL, with space for 60 diners. And if you have an Ashburnham Triangle Residents Card you’ll get 10% off your bill.
