Chotto Matte | Zomato Meetup

The last few weeks have been pretty awesome, having been to a number of foodie related events. Last Thursday I was invited to join a bunch of bloggers at Chotto Matte in Soho by Zomato.

I have to say working in Soho definitely has its benefits, because a hop skip and a jump after work I arrived at the restaurant on Frith St - not too far from Soho Square. From the outside, the restaurant is stylish, modern and a fair size, and after walking in and being greeted by the very friendly front of house staff, I was taken to meet the rest of the bloggers by the bar.

Glass of bubbly in hand, and introductions made to a few lovely ladies, we were given a short talk by the restaurant manager and bar manager, introducing the Japanese-Peruvian fusion cuisine of Nikkei and the typical drinks associated with that area of the world, namely Pisco - a clear spirit created from distilled wine. I hadn't heard of it either.

We were given a range of cocktails to try, all of which were Pisco based and quite delicious with their own distinct flavours. We were also taken on a tour of the restaurant (much to the bemusement of the diners) and around the kitchen - yes the busy, fully operational, hot working kitchen. It was a total eye opener and a really cool experience - again probably to the bemusement of the chefs and kitchen staff. Still everyone was extremely friendly and willing to help us learn.

After ogling at all the amazing food being prepared we were taken back downstairs to try some of it, including tostaditas with raw tuna, wasabi and jalapeños - a true mix of flavours if I ever knew it. As well as sushi, sashimi and someone please correct me if I'm wrong but I believe we also got to try some ceviche fish - which was mind blowingly delicious.

I have to admit, my night at Chotto Matte was divine. The restaurant put on a great evening for all of us bloggers and everything was greatly received. The prices at Chotto Matte lie slightly on the expensive side for me, but something I would love to splash out on for an occasion or special celebration because the food really was fantastic.
