Japanese Canteen, Aldgate, London

Japanese Canteen, Aldgate, London

The only downside of working in a spot like Aldgate, is that the (near) lunch options aren’t that numerous. As such, I find myself clinging to the places that are the most reliable and the most efficient. When it comes to canteen-style Japanese cuisine that […]

Mother India, Glasgow, Scotland

Mother India, Glasgow, Scotland

The mother of all curries? A name that gets heralded around as one of the city’s top restaurants (let alone Indian restaurants) in Glasgow is Mother India. The UK does such a good job of producing such smashing curries, in part to its long history […]

Eat Tokyo, Soho, London

Eat Tokyo, Soho, London

My jaw dropped when I saw the size of the Eat Tokyo Soho katsu curry of my neighbour. £9 gets you an insanely large bowl with surely what must be a kilo of rice, curry and what, five individual breasts of chicken? It’s all so overwhelming and the smells were alright. Eat Tokyo is a super popular cheap Japanese eatery that’s all across London.

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

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.
