Still buzzing with hype and loud music, award-winning Japanese restaurant Roka is a place to celebrate with extravagance. There is a nod to the veggie/vegan, but nothing specific. We have to accept that sometimes authenticity doesn’t lend itself to optionality. To give you a flavour: Avocado maki rolls come without mayo if you ask nicely, eggplant mirin was yummy yet tiny, and the only vegetarian sushi option was so-so. Still, the presentation is beautiful, the wine and sake list finely-tuned.

This is one of those times that plant-forward diners will not feel the full potential of the gastronomic endeavour. Best if you want to impress meat and fish loving trendy friends with a pricey dinner. Reservations necessary.
