Sumosan Twiga – an experience that delights the London party scene
Stylish Knightsbridge bar and restaurant Sumosan Twiga brings the DJ and dance music to accompany the delicious double dish options (Italian and Japenese). This is an experience suited to chic party-loving attendees looking for a delightful dining or brunch experience.
Set over three floors Sumosan Twiga combines Asian and Italian food from international favourites Japanese favourite Sumosan and the Italian Twiga.
When we arrived we were warmly welcomed and made to feel special with the bar staff being on call to cater to your whim. That said, they’re also friendly enough for the dining experience not to feel false and if they don’t know the perfect drink, the mixologist drops on by to talk through your flavour palette (a real plus).
The table is neatly tucked into the corner with a snazzy display of fashion and architecture books behind it and gorgeous lighting, perfect for a good Instagram snap or five.
I can’t deny that the Burrata with “datterino” tomatoes was one of the most delicious that I’ve ever tasted, this dish took me straight back to Lake Como 2018, which isn’t just something any dish can do.
The wasabi prawns with mango and golden passion fruit knocked me straight back into London, a little eye-watering but delicious nonetheless. We also sampled the Gyoza duck confit with ponzu which was delicious, yet my mind wanders back to the star of the plate… that burrata.
Next on the menu was the black truffle ravioli which was just heaven on the tastebuds, I’m a huge fan of Italian, you can’t go wrong with fresh pasta, sage and butter – it hit the spot! The selection of handmade sushi rolls came out next but was slightly underwhelming after the burrata and ravioli, the Italian was very much the front runner.
Well known for its acclaimed offering of Japanese and Italian food, Sumosan Twiga will offer guests the opportunity to enjoy both sides of its roots. The menu will include unique Japanese dishes such as Chargrilled Beef Rib Eye and Salmon and Kumquat Tiradito, as well as signature Italian options, such Tortelloni with Ricotta, Lemon and Bottarga and Insalata di Spinaci with Goats Cheese and Hazelnuts.
Sumonsan Group The first Sumosan restaurant opened in Moscow in 1997, by Alexander Wolkow and his daughter Janina.
