The City is getting a Nikkei restaurant as Waka prepares to open on Eastcheap


What: Waka

In a nutshell: Nikkei to go

Summing it all up: The City gets a new lunchspot on Eastcheap as Waka brings Nikkei Peruvian/Japanese cuisine to the takeaway market


It's ALL about Nikkei in London at the moment. Yesterday we brought you news that the guys at 108 Garage were expanding with a restaurant featuring a raw bar and a Nikkei menu. Now we get news that the City is where you'll find a new Nikkei to go restaurant.

Waka is opening on Eastcheap serving up a range of dishes in the £4 to £7 price range. So if you're a City worker bored of Pret and tried everything in Wasabi, this may be a way to pep up your lunchtime, particularly when you see that dishes include

  • Hot chicken teriyaki rice bowl with Peruvian purple potato
  • Salmon tiradito with apple & passionfruit sauce
  • Beef and queso andino tataki, truffle mayo

If you're not grabbing and dashing, there's also going to be room for 60 diners downstairs.
