About the menu
The dinner will start with our signature salad made with watercress, tofu, katsuobushi (smoked bonito flakes), red shiso furikake (dried and salted perilla leaves) and seasoned with ponzu, a citrus-based sauce.
The next course will be the square-shaped, incredibly silky and firm Sanuki udon.
Originate from Kagawa prefecture, Sanuki udon are nowadays the most appreciated type of Udon noodle in Japan.
We have been researching for the perfect balance between simplicity, to allow the taste of the udon to be fully appreciated, and uniqueness, always a priority here at Monograph.
Our choice goes to Japan-imported Sanuki Udon with an umami-rich dashi broth and presented with two separate pairings:
- An incredibly tender and creamy salmon, marinated 24h in our homemade saikyo-miso
-A super-flavourful smoked mackerel, marinated in yuzu, served with wild rocket leaves
The last course will be a selection of Japanese sweets: matcha dorayaki (the Japanese interpretation of the pancake, filled with green tea powder custard), chocolate mochi (a thin layer of glutinous rice enclosing a chocolate ganache) and aka daifuku (a glutinous rice cake filled with anko, a sweet azuki bean paste)

“When Wagamamas landed on our restaurant landscape we finally thought that we knew what noodles were all about. But with the arrival of top-notch educators like Tonkotsu and Koya, a chilli chicken ramen in the Westfield Stratford feels less and less like the real deal. Shoreditch’s Monograph crew are now here to take our learnings up a notch”

“Each dish is accompanied by a short explanation about the food, and presented with immaculate care and attention to detail. We particularly liked the soy sauce served in individual little spray bottles, a simple way to ensure that the delicate flavours never became saturated by a spillage.
Though Monograph’s food is almost too lovely to eat, each dish will delight and inform. You will come away both thoroughly content and that little bit more knowledgeable to boot.”
