Milk Beach, Soho

Milk Beach Soho restaurant review

Having gained a stellar reputation in Notting Hill, Aussie restaurant Milk Beach has recently opened a second spot in Soho. This time you’ll find them in the oh-so-swanky Ilona Rose House building, complete with uber high ceilings and pretty outdoor courtyard. We hear Warner Bros are their neighbours! Despite having only been open for a few weeks, it already had a lovely bustling atmosphere, with full tables all around. 

Milk Beach Soho a total stunner, with that neutral coastal vibe that melds seamlessly from day to eve, with a menu to match. We kicked off with a rum and pilsner cocktail, with pineapple and cardamom, but we’ll be back for the coffee and banana negroni. 

The menu moves from nibbles, into a raw section, right through to the robata grill, with plenty of veggies in the middle. Asian-influences are laced throughout, from the raw kingfish with macadamia milk, wasabi and strawberry chilli kosho, to the meaty prawn toast with sweet and sour gochujang.

The Szechuan karaage aubergine was a meaty, deep-fried delight, whether you’re vegan or not, and the chicken ‘Schnitty’ has a funky koji marinade and fermented chilli mayo on the side for dipping those delish chicken salt chips in.

Simple but decadent — the whole grilled John Dory was spot on, with big chunks of soft meat falling off the bones. The perfect dish for date night. 

After all that, there was no room for pudding, so we missed out on the ‘Golden Gaytime’ — a dessert to share, packed with toffee, buttermilk parfait, dark chocolate and honeycomb, and perhaps the ultimate Aussie sweet treat — the lamington with morello cherry, chocolate semifreddo and coconut.

This is one hidden bit of Soho that we’re confident, won’t go undiscovered for too long.
