Serving up a fusion of Japanese and Italian cuisines, Angelina's multicultural mashup of flavours utilises fresh, indigenous ingredients and traditional techniques. The eight plate sharing menu emphasises a creative, communal ethos, featuring dishes such as unagi risotto with burnt soy butter and dashi, cavolo nero, tonkotsu, egg and keta caviar, and black sesame and milk chocolate pannacotta. There is also the Chef's Daily Plate, perfect for those who wish to grab a small, quick bite to eat.
Taking inspiration from Tokyo's Shinjuku district, drinks are served from the low-lit hidden drinking den, Golden Gai. The selective wine menu has been created to pair perfectly with the dining experience, while cocktails such as the Gianduja Coupe continue the international blend of flavours, using Italian chocolate and espresso, with Japanese Nikka Whisky. This theme is echoed in the minimalist, modern decor, inspired by Japanese fashion and Italian craftsmanship, with hand-painted caricatures lining the bar space and a grand Italian marble bar overlooking the open kitchen.
