Only a short stomp from Angel underground, Hot Stone is a steak and sushi bar specialising in DIY hot stone cooking – a traditional Japanese method that here puts the ball firmly in the customer’s court. (Time to prove you’re always right, people.) Each diner is given a (very) hot piece of lava stone that they then use to cook a range of meat and fish exactly to their liking, with options including sirloin steak, salmon, tuna and what should be some pretty special A5 Japanese wagyu beef. But it’s not just about the surf and turf – the menu goes big on sushi, sashimi, nigiri and maki too, plus plenty of sides including kimchi, yasai salad and horenso gomaae – a Japanese spinach salad with sesame dressing. And the restaurant itself? It’s a good-looking spot, with decor inspired by traditional Japanese design complemented by a few fancy contemporary flourishes.
