I ran into town for lunch from Shuji Sushi, ordering a katsu curry rice bowl (donburi). It’s a good size, a lot of rice and it warmed me up. This was handy as it rained on the way back home. Overall, not the most interesting […]
Everything is so expensive in Reykjavik so all my eating out was restricted to (relative) cheap eats. This strategy did pay off, I found some great stuff without too much damage to the ol’ savings account. One of my highlights was the hearty curry from […]
I’d love to have a home near Thai Home. And my friend is fortunate to be in that situation, being mere seconds from the front door in Roncesvalles Village. We dined in for the $10 set lunch, and this was straight out incredible. It’s not a […]

It’s all so overwhelming and the smells were alright. Eat Tokyo is a super popular cheap Japanese eatery that’s all across London.
