Nikkei fusion restaurant WAKA has signed with developers and landowners Stanhope, Mitsui Fudosan and AIMCo to open in the WestWorks building in White City Place, west London.
WAKA, London’s first “grab-and-go” Nikkei restaurant, the vibrant fusion of Japanese and Peruvian cuisine, will open its second restaurant in White City Place, following the success of their first in the City of London.
Nikkei fusion was born in the late 1800s when settlers from Japan migrated to Peru, adapting their home cuisine to incorporate local ingredients. WAKA’s menu combines Japanese simplicity with the playfulness of Peru, with customer favourites including the Maracuya Salmon Tiradito and the Truffle Tuna Tataki.
Previously only found in high-end restaurants, WAKA makes high-quality, affordable Nikkei food available to everyone. You will find a selection of sushi, bento and ceviche on the menu along with a variety of hot bowls, such as signature dish Miso Salmon Anticucho, all made fresh to eat daily with ingredients delivered from local suppliers.
White City Place is host to a great mix of dining experiences, which will be further enhanced by WAKA’s arrival. Workers, residents and visitors can already enjoy, authentic New-York style pizza at Pizza Street, freshly-made Greek cuisine at The Athenian, American goods at Butterscotch Bakery and fast service Italian at Coco di Mama. Wine bar & restaurant Wellbourne and Karachi kitchen Shola are due to open at White City Place this spring.
David Camp, Stanhope, Chief Executive said:
“We are thrilled to announce that WAKA has chosen to open in White City Place as an exciting new enterprise on the London food scene. Its arrival will complement and enhance an already leading line-up of independent restaurants”
