Juno – A Fusion Haven at Los Mochis Notting Hill

In a culinary revelation set to captivate the London dining scene, Los Mochis Notting Hill is introducing Juno, an avant-garde Omakase experience on January 11, 2024.

This Mexican-Japanese restaurant, where the vibrant spirit of Tokyo meets the laid-back charm of Tulum, is about to redefine the traditional Omakase encounter.

With just six intimate counter-style seats, Juno promises an immersive gastronomic journey, making it the smallest and most exclusive Omakase in London.

A Unique Blend of Cultures

Situated on the 1st floor of the Notting Hill Restaurant, Juno draws inspiration from traditional Japanese cuisine with an unmistakable Mexican twist.

It offers a lively interpretation of the conventional Omakase, embracing the unexpected and the innovative.

Executive Chef Leonard Tanyag, formerly of ex-OKKU and Zuma, collaborates with Head Sushi Chef Han, previously of Nobu and Roka, to curate an unforgettable dining experience.

A Menu Beyond Boundaries

At Juno, the absence of a menu is intentional, emphasizing the essence of the Omakase tradition – “I leave it up to you.”

Guests will be treated to 15 inventive courses, showcasing the culinary prowess of the chefs. The freshest sustainably line-caught fish, such as Madai (Red Bream) from the South of Japan and Saboten Hirame (Olive Flounder) from Jeju Island, takes centre stage.

The traditional ikejime technique ensures the highest quality and humane treatment of the fish, setting Juno apart as a gastronomic haven.

Culinary Artistry and Ethical Sourcing

Executive Chef Leonard Tanyag’s culinary creations extend beyond seafood, featuring Japanese Kagoshima Wagyu A4 with bone marrow and smoked chillis, and Seared Hokkaido Scallops with caramelised fig and truffle goma.

All dishes mirror Los Mochis’ commitment to being gluten and nut-free, aligning with the restaurant’s ethos.

Embracing Sustainability

In a nod to sustainability, Juno places a cap on daily fish catches to a maximum of 10, preventing overfishing and contributing to ecosystem preservation.

The commitment extends to supporting local farmers, fostering a sense of quality and community within the culinary landscape.

The Omakase Experience

‘Omakase’ at Juno is not merely a meal; it’s an immersive journey into unique flavour and texture combinations. Guests relinquish control, entrusting the chefs to craft a personalised dining experience.

The intimate space, adorned with dark rustic tones and copper finishes, sets the stage for the culinary adventure.

A handmade walnut countertop becomes the canvas for each course, designed to be savoured by hand—a tactile experience that amplifies the pleasure of the meal.

A Pan-Pacific Palette

Juno’s Pan-Pacific ethos is reflected not only in its culinary offerings but also in the bespoke pairing options.

Each course can be accompanied by a carefully curated selection of Wine, Sake, or Agave, enhancing the overall dining experience.

Visionary Leadership

Markus Thesleff, Founder of Los Mochis, expresses excitement about Juno’s launch, stating, “We continue to innovate the dining experience, which is essential ahead of our flagship restaurant opening in Broadgate in the City in spring 2024.”

The exclusivity of Juno, catering to only six guests per seating, allows the chefs to unleash their creativity and push the boundaries of traditional Omakase.

Reservations and Details

Juno opens its doors on Thursday, January 11, 2024, offering two sittings at 6 pm and 8.30 pm. Priced at £180 for 15 courses, reservations are essential and require pre-payment.

This culinary masterpiece promises an unparalleled fusion of Mexican spirit and Japanese elegance, creating a sensory adventure for those fortunate enough to secure a seat.

In the realm of London’s culinary landscape, Juno emerges as a beacon of innovation, where tradition meets avant-garde, and the spirit of two diverse cultures converges in a harmonious symphony of flavours.

Los Mochis Notting Hill’s Juno is poised to redefine the Omakase experience, setting a new standard for exclusive and immersive dining in the heart of London.
