I recently had the pleasure to try out this cute little Japanese cafe in Putney. As far as it was from me (I’m based in East London), it was worth the trek! Just check out these super colourful Japanese cakes!
Here we have the Mille Crepes in the forefront. Flavours were (left to right): Raspberry, coconut, matcha and Mango.
In the background we have their cake rolls. Flavours were (left to right): chestnut, matcha, sweet potato and mango.
They taste as good as they look 😍
Sakurado is known for their desserts but their hot food is great too! They do a set lunch for £15 from Fridays – Sundays (no more weekdays!) so make sure you book ahead 🙂
A lovely mix of starter plates, from what I remember it was miso soup, pumpkin salad, sesame vegetables, pickled vegetables and matcha pudding. The mini bowls they come in is just too cute! My favourite was the pumpkin salad, mmm.
Chicken oyakodon; I only tried a bit of this but my god the egg was tasty. I highly recommend this one.
Salmon teriyaki: at first I thought this plate didn’t look like a lot but the onigiri’s were deceptively filling! The teriyaki sauce was delicious, wish there was more of it!
Saving the best for last; the matcha tiramisu! The coffee was quite strong but I love coffee so it didn’t bother me. The matcha creme was strongly infused with matcha, and the combination of the matcha creme and the coffee base was perfect. I’ll honestly come back just for this!
