Shibuya has been popular over the last few months it has opened for their dessert, Soho Bing. At a glance you will think it is just shaved ice, but you will be surprised. The texture is soft snow that melt in your mind and taste like ice cream. It is actually made of milk that is turned in to snow.
Bing comes from Korea and has been popular over in Hong Kong. Shibuya is the first London restaurant I know to serve this Korean dessert, so no surprise it has been popular.
Shibuya has five different bing to select and each one comes in two sizes, small (£5.90) and regular (£7.90). I feel the small is enough for one person and can be shared if you are just peckish for a few spoonful. Otherwise the regular is good sharing size.
Out of all the different bing I would recommend the Kinako Bing. The bing is topped with roasted soybean flour, sweet red bean and drizzle with condensed milk. You also get a separate small pot of condensed milk if not enough.
My second favourite would be the Matcha Bing where the bing is topped with matcha powder, sweet red bean and drizzle with condensed milk.
As well as bing for dessert, Shibuya also offer cakes including a strawberry cream cake and a matcha roll cake.
Shibuya does not just serve dessert, it also serve Japanese food. It is a place you can have dinner and finish off dessert at the same place. Each dishes are beautifully presented.
There are a selection of appertizer on the menu and the one that caught my eyes is the Hotate Creamy (£6.70).
Shibuyu alse serves a range of sushi, sashimi and rolls. However my view is if I come to Shibuya then I would come here for their rice dishes (see below).
Japanese curry comes in the choice of deep fried pork cutlet (£11.80) or deep fried chicken (£9.90). Each one is served with rice.
Black cod marinated in miso paste (£12.80) is one of my favourite dish at Shibuya.
Salmon teriyaki (£10.80)
There are choice of different don which are all served with miso soup. Gyudon don (£9.50) is one of them which is a traditional don with rice topped with beef and onion.
Shibuya has seating over two floors but still small. So I do not recommend it for large group.
