Shuka

OPENED77 DAYS AGO

The Bowery Restaurant Group, who’s top hits include Rosie’s and Cookshop, have just opened a new Mediterranean spot in Soho – Shuka. The opening comes hot off the heels of other Mediterranean restaurants that have also just opened up in the area like Cervo’s and Fairfax and is set to be the neighbourhood’s latests all-day hotspot.

The Spot:

Shuka is designed by The Bowery Restaurant Group and seats 90 guests in its Mediterranean-style setting. The restaurant comes with blue and white ceramic Moroccan tiles with stenciled illustrations, banquettes with Middle Eastern-style patterned pillows and linen tufted ceiling curtains.

The Food:

Chef Ayesha Nurdjaja is helming the kitchen and draws on her experiences as a Brooklyn native, growing up with an Italian mother and Indonesian father when putting the menu together. Shuka’s menu features fresh Med classics and begins with dips and mezze like Roasted Corn Hummus with Cilantro and Pita, House Made Labne and Halloumi Flatbread with Garlic, Za’atar and Basil. The appetizer section also includes a selection of skewers including Pork Kofta, Shawarma Spiced Chicken, and Swordfish. Larger dishes include Vegetable Paella with Patty Pan Squash, Whole Porgy with Marinated Cherry Tomatoes, Shaved Baby Zucchini and Basil Zhoug and Tagine with Cod, Potatoes, Peppers, Cracked Olives, Pickled Lemon and Cilantro.

The Drinks:

Housemade cocktails include specialities like the ‘Tunis’ with Tequila, Red Pepper Juice, Lime Juice, Simple Syrup and Lemon Shrub, the ‘Cairo’ with Templeton Rye and Date Molasses and the ‘Tripoli’ with Vodka, Gin and Lillet Blanc served in a Fish Flask with a martini glass on the side.

In A Nutshell:

The new restaurant replaces the former Hundred Acres space on Macdougal Street and showcases the dynamic and flavourful cuisine of Eastern Mediterranean – a must try.
