19 Liverpool Street
I’ve sampled the set lunches Horoki offers and it doesn’t compare to their dinner offerings. Horoki’s menu steps away from the traditional Japanese offerings and adds its own delicious little twist to the dishes, making it one of my favourite places to get a quick bite or a late dinner.
Tuna Carpaccio - Tuna sashimi served in a Light Soy dressing, sprinkled with a grazed Parmigiano Reggano and topped with a touch of Mayonnaise ($15.8)
One of my favourite dishes. Dainty pink slivers of fresh tuna sitting in a pool of light soy, unusually topped with parmesan curls and lined with kewpie mayo.
Spicy Sashimi Salad - Fresh Sashimi (King, Salmon, Tuna, Scallop) with Cabbage, Onion, Radish, Cucumber and Pear mixed in Special Dressing ($18.9)
On the spicy side, personally I prefer the clean fresh flavours of their Daikon Salad
Crispy Soft Shell Crab with Lemon Sour Cream Mayo ($15.8)
A new favourite, I find they aren’t too heavy handed with the batter coating the soft shell crab.
Salmon & Spinach Croquette - Deep Fried Croquettes filled with Potato, Salmon and Spinach in a Mayo & Tonkatsu Sauce ($14.8)
I rarely order croquettes, but this had a crunchy shell coating a hot moist potato and salmon mixture.
Mentaiko Rice Noodle - Rice Noodle with Spicy Cod Roe (Fish Egg) Butter ($13.5)
Slightly creamy, the rice noodle retains a little bite, and I love the popping sensation of the cod roe, which adds flavour to each mouthful.
Roasted Octopus in Garlic Butter
Reminiscent of escargot, butter fiends will adore the heavenly golden garlic butter pools the tender octopus sits in.
Horoki Style Braised Hamburg Steak - A minced hamburg steak smothered in a rich and creamy tomato sauce ($15.8)
Not a dish I would typically order, but the mince was juicy.
It’s one of those places, you already know what you feel like as you step in and you don’t need the menu as you know your favourites off by heart. And each dish is so unique, it’s hard to mistake it for another.
