Chotto Matte Tostadito Launch

Chotto Matte (5)

There is a new menu cooking up quite a storm in Soho. Chotto Matte have just launched their new Tostadita menu, which is perfect for getting the girls (or guys) together and sharing some platters over their handy new cocktail menu too. Thought of everything haven’t they?

On Wednesday, me and some of my friends headed down for their launch party to see what it was all about.

Chotto Matte serves Nikkei cuisine which is a Japanese evolution of Peruvian food. Executive Chef Jordan Sclare has created an affordable, tostadita menu, which essentially are tortillas topped with Nikkei flavors such a seafood, ceviche and chilies. Shaped like a pizza, it’s perfect for ordering a few and sharing amongst a group whilst letting off steam after a long day at work. 

They even have set up a dedicated Tostadita work station.

 Of course I had to have a go at the manly version of their ice crusher. Just maybe don’t distract me.

The as ever, gorgeous Angie and Caroline.

Of course when the idea behind the menu is sharing and relaxing, what’s a girl to do but grab a cocktail… or two?

Sparkling Sake was very unusual but a clear winner for me.

OK I lied, more like 4 cocktails. Well it would be rude not to try them, surely?

However the star of the show wanted attention, so without further a do. Let me introduce you to the Tosadita’s. Prepare for some serious beautiful colours.

Salmon guacamole with jalapeno and citrus soy salsa.  It had the qualities of sashimi, and the citrus made fora beautifully fresh taste.

Next was Sea bass hucatay with kumquat and coriander. Again done sashimi style, the flavours really lifted through.

Of course, as Chotto Matte is perfect for friends, they have their own residents DJ booth, which I had to have a go at. With the Dixon Brothers from Kiss fm as my teacher, what could go wrong...?

Finally we were treated to a platter of Petit Fours. Sugar and spice and all things nice after all.
