Today is the day that Waka open their doors to the City of London workers, bringing a fresh new grab-and-go lunch spot on Eastcheap. Siblings Irakli and Nino Sopromadze are set to offer a range of Nikkei dishes including handmade sushi, tamari-glazed fried chicken wings, gyoza and tiraditos, as well as meals like the classic hot chicken teriyaki rice bowl with a Peruvian twist of purple potato and the beef and queso andino tataki.
The birth of Nikkei cuisine began in Peru, during the late 1800s. The name Nikkei, derives from the Japanese settlers who came to Peru and modified their local Japanese cuisine with Peruvian ingredients.
If the food alone isn’t enough to entice you, the cost will with dishes ranging from £4 to £7. If you’d rather eat-in than rush off with your takeaway, Waka have you covered with a 60-cover basement dining area.
We know where we’ll be spending our lunch break!
