KOYA

One of the things I'm going to miss about having less free time in the week days is my impromptu visits to KOYA in Soho. The standards have remained resolutely high as the years have gone by and the quality remains impeccable as does the quietly confident service. My fav spot is by the window as the bar is dimly lit and quite small, but I love that it reflects the noodle bars in Japan whereby everyone sits elbow to elbow for casual dining or a quick lunch, slurping noisily and unapologetic as you're supposed to. I went with Faiyaz, whose taste is more refined than mine and like me, a creative who has the time and the patience to not just endure, but to take part in an all out photo shoot before actually consuming the food! Well you know what they say, camera eats first....
