The revisit to One-O-One has been long overdue. The tasting menu I tried last time had so many wow factors it instantly became my favourite seafood restaurant in London.
This time, we tried the Wild Norwegian red king crab legs from the Barents sea. The choice for this dish was 1) simply on ice with mayo and lemon, 2) warm with sweet chilli-ginger sauce or 3) grilled with basil tomato olive oil. I highly recommend the first one, plain and simple with all the original flavours reserved. The sweet chilli ginger one we tried this time was much sweeter with a strong buttery taste. Still delicious to eat but not as good as just on ice.
Roasted Norwegian white halibut
The halibut was slightly overcooked with a tougher texture, but the langoustine dumplings were superb. Fresh seafood flavours with an al dente wrapping, the star of the dish. I also loved the paimpol coco beans, which tasted exactly like butter beans. Its mashy texture was perfect with the halibut. Both sauces were good, especially the truffle sauce.
The other dish on the photo is Ocean fish.
One-O-One is a superb seafood restaurant, possibly the best in London. The only downside is the restaurant is overly quiet on most days, which means service can be slow with only a few staff available. Otherwise, the portions are generous and there is no need to book.
