Resto 14 Haku Kitchin, Kentish Town
Back in The Smoke after a fun-packed weekend in Frankfurt I was dragged reluctantly to K Town by the old boy to meet him after work. A refresher in the ever-dependable Boston Arms helped banish the angst and for dinner we strolled down to Haku Kitchin. (And not Baku Kitchin as I originally misspelt it, that would be a very different beast.)
Being a fellow hospitality toiler James was on nodding terms with our server, who shared a similarly slightly awkward, yet friendly and enthusiastic approach to customer-relations. The room is bright with simple, pale wood and attractively decorated. It soon filled with diners and the takeaway business seemed to be going well too.
And why not when the food is as good as this. Excellent gyoza (pig and prawn from memory) and complimentary edamame up front was followed by a generous helping of crunchy Katsu chicken on a bed of fluffy rice. Washed down with a chunky can of cold Sapporo this simple meal was just what I needed after a bacchanalian weekend.
