Eating & Drinking Guide

The 2017/18 edition of The List's Eating & Drinking Guide is out now – only £5.95 (+p&p).

With a blackboard full of tempting daily specials like refreshing slithers of fiery stonebass carpaccio, or beef tataki with black truffle butter blowtorched at the table, Maki & Ramen's menu is extensive. The pig bone broth is rich and comforting whilst all the sushi classics come laden with vibrant fresh fish. If deciding is tough then go omakase – translated as 'I'll leave it to you', this is a 12-course, chef-selected, tasting menu, complete with sake. Don't forget to save room for homemade sesame mochi too. Unlike their original venue, this second Maki & Ramen is a large contemporary space with Japanese style seating (shoes off, legs crossed) and a sushi bar if you want to pick up some maki-making tips. Post It notes doodled with fond memories add a splash of colour to the walls and with a BYOB policy the atmosphere is sure to be vibrant in the evening.
