Abokado, Whitechapel, London

Abokado, Whitechapel, London

My new work in Whitechapel might not have any Wasabi or Itsus around, but we do have an Abokado. The way I see it, they’re all relatively similar, operating in the same pseudo-Japanese quick takeaway angle. The prices all seem the same and the menu […]

Chiang Mai Kitchen, Oxford

Chiang Mai Kitchen, Oxford

Our evening on our Oxford day trip concluded with a dinner at Chiang Mai Kitchen. We paced ourselves rather well over our time in the city. The meal arrived at the point with just enough to get back to to the station with ease. Chiang […]

Roti King, King’s Cross, London

Roti King, King’s Cross, London

If you’re looking for the most authentic Malaysian cuisine in London, you can find it at Roti King at King’s Cross. Everything about this place is screaming authentic. Including the queue and the table service. The crowded setup and heat of the kitchen is found at many a hawker centre over in the East.

Asia, Aker Brygge, Oslo

Asia, Aker Brygge, Oslo

Venture into the East with a meal at the South East-inspired Asia Aker Brygge. This waterfront restaurant offers exotic dishes with a twist, served in small portions that are ideal for sharing. I head in for one of my dinnertimes whilst visiting Oslo and I […]

Hoppers, Soho, London

Hoppers, Soho, London

One of my absolute favourite restaurants in London is Hoppers. And I’m not alone there, there is a constant stream of fans also queuing for this authentic Sri Lankan experience. Expect to wait some time if you’re coming during the usual dinner and lunch rush. […]

Banana Tree, Soho, London

Banana Tree, Soho, London

I’ve had the Tastecard a little while now, but never got around to using it. The restaurants featured on the program are largely chain-based. Or not very good ones. So this is my first experience with that in hand. Banana Tree is located in the heart of Soho making it an ideal spot to catch up with a friend from the office. The deal meant buy-one-get-one-free so we had a lot of food for not a lot. A good start.

Wagamama, Dean Street, Soho

Wagamama, Dean Street, Soho

Despite my internal protests, part of me is magnetised to Wagamama‘s. I end up eating there more than I realise. My big brother was visiting me from all the way from Aucks, and for whatever reason, it was the choice of location for our first […]

Mukka Indian Restaurant, Fitzroy, Melbourne

Mukka Indian Restaurant, Fitzroy, Melbourne

It’s been about five months since I left the shores of Australia for a new life in Europe. I haven’t forgotten my final meal, which was a stellar performance. Mukka Indian Restaurant made for a perfect sendoff. This ended up being my favourite Indian meal […]

Wasabi Review, All London

Wasabi Review, All London

There’s two pseudo-Japanese cafe chains that you’ll get used to seeing lots of in London. One is Itsu, and the second is Wasabi. There’s not too much difference between them other than Itsu going for more of a health angle. Wasabi was first opened in 2013 as a single store establishment in Embankment by Dong Hyun Kim. There’s over fifty stores all across London now (or more) and even more to arrive all over the world.
