Critically acclaimed Hot Stone may have had to temporarily close its doors to Chapel Market (cheers, Lockdown 3.0), but the pass is anything but quiet… introducing, Hot Stone at home! Carefully reimagined for at home dining by Executive Chef Padam Raj Rai, the menu features a plethora of à la carte favourites and new exciting Nepalese dishes. For celebratory dinners, special date nights and Valentine’s, the Hot Stone Omakase box takes diners on a 24-step culinary journey of authentic and innovative Japanese cuisine.
Available for delivery across most London postcodes (and collection), the at home menu is different from many of its Japanese counterparts – Chef has consciously selected the finest ingredients available to ensure the best possible at home dining experience. While fresh and sustainable fish, seafood and vegetables are locally sourced, wherever possible, traditional ingredients come straight from Japan and have been painstakingly selected. Diners can expect Sanpuki Nori grown at the shores of the Ariake Sea, premium Koshihikari rice – widely considered to be the best sushi rice specially grown in Japan – a range of aged soy sauces (up to 30 years matured), a selection of Wagyu cuts including A5 Japanese sirloin, and real Japanese wasabi, grated freshly to enjoy with sushi at home.
Alongside an extensive range of signature sushi, hot and chilled sashimi, carpaccio and maki, hand shaped and sliced fresh to order, the at home menu features 48 hour marinated Black Cod with saikyo miso sauce, Japanese Wagyu don and grilled avocado with passion fruit and spicy mayonnaise.
The at home menu also celebrates Chef Padam’s heritage with a choice of traditional Nepalese plates – expect Alu Dum, a traditional potato dish rich with spices and fresh coriander, Gundruk, Nepal’s unofficial national dish of carefully fermented shredded vegetables, and sweet Yomari, a festival dish of steamed rice flour dough filled with molasses and sesame.
For a special celebration at home, opt for the 24-piece Omakase box, priced at £110. Arriving ready to be unwrapped in traditional Japanese furoshiki cloth, the box features nigiri – think scallop with truffle and caviar, and Scottish salmon glazed with 3-year aged soy sauce – and sushi rolls to share, perfectly filled with Japanese Wagyu sukiyaki, tuna and salmon.
With Dry January firmly a phenomenon of the past, add home-made rice wine or made to order cocktails to your order – either fresh Japanese wasabi and gin, or a riff on the Old Fashioned of muddled cloudy sake and Japanese whisky. Kampai!
Available Thursday-Sunday from 6-9pm, the at home menu can be ordered online to select London postcodes or collected from the restaurant. For London-wide private deliveries, please phone the restaurant on 020 3302 8226.
