● Regent Street’s legendary Japan Centre’s restaurant, Toku, will be using the Queen’s Jubilee as an excuse to Anglicise. “Savile Roe” is seared salmon nigiri, topped with melted cheese, cherry tomato, ikura salmon roe and wasabi mayonnaise, while “Sunday Roast” is an avocado and prawn inside-out roll with a hot horseradish and teriyaki sauce, topped with seared beef. Who said afternoon tea needed to be dull – or English? Available throughout the summer. 16 Regent Street. 020 3405 1222
