Monochrome Tones and Dinner at Kiru, Chelsea

A grey outer piece is the best alternative to your everyday black coat. It’s basically still in the same family, just with some added milk. Goes perfectly with black and white piece if you want to go for a monochrome theme like I did the other day. Or you can pair it up with softer hues like powder blue or beige, which will achieve a feminine, soft look that any black pieces would not be able to pull off. 

This grey coat I purchased a couple years ago while it was on a whooping 80% discount in Harrods. It was from the Harrods’ own brand, and was 100% cashmere. 
While the exact same thing is not available now(might be again during summer/Christmas sale, worth checking out then), I’ve found a few similar pieces all on great offer at the moment. (especially on the Sale Coats page, the discounts are unbelievably generous..MUST SEE)  

A camel number is also nice when you try to go for a softer look with layerings.

The rest of the look are(basically the same as in the previous post)

// White Split Jumper(similar) from ASOS //
// Light before Dark Cullotes from Urbanoutfitters //
// Super Wide Leg Indigo Cullotes from ASOS //
// Simon Miller Wide Leg Cropped Jeans from //
// Zip-up Leather Platforms (similar) from & Other Stories SALE //
// Stella McCartney Falabella Backpack (in blue) //
// Stella McCartney Snake-print Backpack on //
// Gucci Bamboo Detail Sunglasses from (on offer) //

And after a short and sweet lunch break in Pret a Manger(as you can tell from just above), yet another Japanese treat is awaiting that dinner. (wondering why I said “another” means you didn’t see this post about Engawa )

Kiru is a relatively new comer to Chelsea. Looking at its location and interior, you immediately know that it’s gonna be a pricy one …pricy indeed it was, but let me tell you, it was money well spent.

Cocktails looked altogether more yummy on sketches, who knew that?

The food was Japanese fusion, while maintained the spirit and served all the freshest, finest ingredients on the plates.

Egg omelet sashimi which is usually served last as a dessert in traditional Japanese cuisine. Here it’s come as a starter, but tastes equally good.

Wagyu beef spring rolls with wasabi mayo.

Tobiko roll.

A selection of different nigiris really shows off the freshness of the materials and skill of the chef. From crab to toro to uni(sea urchin), everything was well executed and tasted sweet and delightful. 

Toro nigiri.

Aubergine baked with miso & sesame. 

Asparagus salad(one of my favourite that dinner for its freshness and cooked to perfection).

A signature dish, slow cooked salmon under 50C heat. The meat becomes extra juicy and tender afterwards.

Braised pork belly with mustard dipping.

Another signature, lamb with genghis khan sauce. It would come in a glass dome full of smoke, and then away with the dome and reveal the lamp chops inside. 

A great new addition to the neighbourhood that’s definitely worth a visit or two(a few).
