So Restaurant, contemporary Japanese cuisine with European influences.
After 14 plus years sharing Japanese culture and cuisine in Soho London, the time has come to close our doors.
Following government guidelines, we had stopped dine-in operation in late March, during which time we started delivering our specialities in vacuum sealed packaging. We were delighted this was received well and decided we must continue.
Come 7th July, deliveries and collections will recommence from our new location near Liverpool Street where we share a space with our sister company Sozai Cooking School. We also plan to offer take-aways of our most popular menus.
'So Sozai Selection'
So Sozai Selection can be warmed and enjoyed at any time you wish. Unlike delivery food that is best eaten as soon as it arrives, these air tight packages can be stored in the fridge from 2-7 days (depending on dish, details will be on each packet).
Open them all and make a meal for the whole family or enjoy them one by one over a course of a week, there's lots of flexibility!
A little bit about the word 'sozai'
Sozai, which is also the name of our cooking school, has two meanings.
素材 (pronounced sozai) that means ingredient(s), and 惣菜 (pronounced sor-zai) which describes pre-prepared and packed main and side dishes that can be reheated and enjoyed at home. Similar to what may be referred to as 'deli' in some cultures.
So Restaurant's Sozai Delivery is of the latter 'Sor-zai', which is typically eaten as accompaniments to rice and miso soup.
One delivery of 'sozai selection' will serve 3-4 people, when accompanied with rice and miso soup*. Please note that this is subject to age, gender and how hungry everyone is!
* Rice and miso soup are not included in package.
Bravo.It was a beautiful feast that I so missed and longing for the wonderful of So restaurant cooking once again
