|WAKA to Bring Fusion of Japanese and Peruvian Cuisines to White City Place|
Nikkei restaurant is third within weeks to announce move into Wood Lane
WAKA, London’s first 'grab-and-go' Nikkei restaurant - the fusion of Japanese and Peruvian cuisines - is opening its second restaurant in White City Place.
WAKA is the third new addition within a month to announce it is moving to White City Place, the development o the site of the former BBC Media Village in Wood Lane.
Wellbourne and Shola Karachi Kitchen have already signed deals with developers Stanhope and landowners AIMCo and Mitsui Fudosan to open in the WestWorks building.
Wellbourne was started by two friends who have been chefs in some of London’s most iconic restaurants, including as head and sous chef of recently closed Michelin-starred London restaurant Dabbous.
They have chosen White City Place as their third venue, having launched their first restaurant in Clifton village in Bristol in September 2017 and a second in the Pyrenees town of Salardu, which opens for the duration of the winter ski season.
As a newcomer to the London food scene, Wellbourne will offer a morning brunch menu focused around breakfast classics made freshly in-house. That 70s staple, vol-au-vents and an all day menu will be available from midday in both a restaurant and bar area.
Shola-Karachi Kitchen is the first permanent London site for founder Aida Khan, who grew up in Abu Dhabi and Karachi.
