Gamma Gamma - Soho’s latest culinary treat

Gamma Gamma - Soho’s latest culinary treat

New Pan Asian tapas restaurant takes up residence in Greek Street, former site of Bo Drake.

Having emerged from the wilderness a number of years ago, London is now recognised worldwide as a destination city to visit for a mouthwateringly eclectic offer of restaurants - both high end and those less demanding on the purse strings. Falling somewhere between the two, the recently launched Pan Asian tapas restaurant in Soho - Gamma Gamma - is a fine addition to the capital’s restaurant scene.

The imaginative menu of fusion 
dishes designed for sharing includes an array of exotic meats
 such as zebra, kangaroo and ostrich, all of which can be complemented with innovative bespoke cocktails. Created by Executive Chef, Jonathan Villar - formerly of MBER and
 Kopapa - the menu also features a fine selection both of gluten and dairy-free options.

Particularly impressive is the overall choice of dishes. Raw and cured options 
include Tiger Prawns and Coconut Thai Ceviche, Kaffir Lime, Chilli and Coriander; and Zebra Loin Tataki with Charred Grapes, Popcorn, Sake-cured Egg,
 Sriracha Jelly and Orange Blossom Labneh. Salads include a fabulous Asian take on Tuna
 Nicoise - Seared Nori Tuna Loin with Baby Gem Lettuce, Soft Boiled Egg, Truffle Potato, Green
beans, Cherry Tomatoes and Edamame, Kalamansi and Togarashi Vinaigrette.

Other areas in the sharing menu feature Crispy Sesame Squid with an exquisite Yuzu Mayonnaise and melt-in-the-mouth Eight
-hour Braised Wagyu Beef Ribs with Beetroot and Kizami Wasabi Siu Mai, Smoked Bone Marrow
 and Garlic Aioli.

Before the launch earlier this week (22 October), Gamma Gamma announced its intentions: “To bring the diverse and unexpected flavours of Asia to Soho, through 
unique flavour combinations using unusual ingredients in a sophisticated environment.” Looks like they are bang on track to realise those intentions.
