Hanaichi, Melbourne CBD

Hanaichi, Melbourne CBD

I’ve spent many a lunch or dinner time wandering around Melbourne CBD aimlessly, looking for a food option that’s light, light on the wallet and at least student-quality good. As such I’ve found myself at Hanaichi on many of those occasions. Even after another few […]

CJ Lunch Bar, Melbourne

CJ Lunch Bar, Melbourne

One of the cheapest and busiest Korean places in town is CJ Lunch Bar, concealed in Little Lonsdale Street and easily identified by the queues forming around. Two reasons: great food and cheap as chips.

Sushi California, Earlscourt, Toronto

Sushi California, Earlscourt, Toronto

Welcome to the Sushi California, such a lovely place, such a lovely place… Well, it is. There’s a slogan on the window outside of “sushi with a style, prices with a smile”. That’s certainly lived up to in the experience at Sushi California.

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 […]
