A new Pan-Asian restaurant, GammaGamma has launched in the heart of Soho. Spread over two floors, the restaurant and bar offers a unique tapas experience, which revolves around the vibrant flavours and colours of Asia. Inside is a cosy, intimate space, and things really get interesting on the menu. If you fancy taking a trip to the wild side, then look no further than GammaGamma’s menu, which features some unusual guests.
The chefs have certainly not been limited by traditional culinary standards. The original new menu has been specially crafted with some dishes showcasing exotic meats such as kangaroo, ostrich and zebra loin. Special dishes include zebra loin tataki with charred grapes, popcorn, sake cured egg, sriracha jelly and orange blossom labneh. Or if that doesn’t tickle your fancy then why not try kangaroo steak “tagalog”,a filipino style steak marinated in soy with kalamansi, garlic and black pepper, caramelised onion and garlic chips.
Finally, curries include jungle curry with minced ostrich loin, lemongrass, galangal, kaffir lime and thai chillie.
To compliment the bold menu, the restaurant offers a range of asian-inspired drinks, including sakes, wines and inventive cocktails such as the Grammatini (vodka, lemongrass and lychee) and the Smokey Eye (whiskey, plum wine, chilli syrup and red vermouth).
All the ingredients come from responsible sources, and the menu also features gluten and dairy free options.
