Chotto Matte

Earlier this week, having been unceremoniously and inexplicably dumped from a reservation at Carisma, I ended up at Chotto Matte for a work dinner. I had not been before.

I entered with trepidation. The atmosphere was…suit-y.

The food, though, was pretty good. We had one of each of the Nikkei sharing menus, but they sequenced them thoughtfully (not quite in the order below).

  • Glasses of a Bouzy Champagne which someone had accidentally opened
  • Canchas (corn puffs)
  • Tostadita de hongos (eryngii mushroom, yuzu truffle, grated Parmesan)
  • Spicy tuna sushi roll (tuna, Peruvian chilli)
  • Sea bass ceviche (sea bass sashimi, sweet potato, Peruvian corn, coriander, chive oil, citrus sauce)
  • Nikkei gyoza (pork, prawn and cassava dumplings, aji amarillo, sweet potato puree)
  • Prawn spring roll (ebi harumaki, shiitake, shiso ponzu salsa)
  • Pollo den miso (chicken miso, carrot, daikon, yellow chilli salsa)
  • Tentaculos de pulpo (octopus, yuzu, purple potato puree)
  • Classic tostadita (tuna sashimi, corn crisp, jalapeño, coriander, wasabi)
  • Warm Wagyu beef fillet tataki (smoked aji panca, passion fruit salsa)
  • Nikkei sashimi (sea bass, cherry tomatoes, jalapeño, coriander, yuzu truffle soy)
  • Nikkei sepia chicharrónes (calamari tempura, aji amarillo)
  • Bacalao negro aji miso (black cod, yellow chilli miso)
  • Barriguita de chanchito (pork belly, nashi pear, yellow tomato salsa)
  • Dessert (mochi ice cream, something chocolate)
  • Bottle of La Bruja De Rozas 2017 Garnacha
  • Sooooooommmme kind of Saké?
