Mai Thai Market & Bistro, Reykjavík

Mai Thai Market & Bistro, Reykjavík

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 […]

Khmer Thai, Oakwood, Toronto

Khmer Thai, Oakwood, Toronto

“Bare bones pick serves hearty plates”: Google hits the nail on the head with its description of Khmer Thai. We head in for some delicious (but cut price) Cambodian-Thai cuisine. The portions are crazy and the food is crazy good.

Thai Home, Roncesvalles Village, Toronto

Thai Home, Roncesvalles Village, Toronto

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 store with a hip buzz and the interior has some queasy mismatch. But in a way this usually makes for the best. The food is great value and mega tasty.

Lahore Kebab House, Whitechapel, London

Lahore Kebab House, Whitechapel, London

Legendary kebab house Lahore Kebab House offers delicious, tantalising Pakistani cuisine. And luckily for me, it’s the closest restaurant to my home. Along with a BYO option for drinks, you trade off having decent service and sticky floors for getting authentic curries, grills and breads. […]

Cafe Shelley’s, Soho, London

Cafe Shelley’s, Soho, London

One of my absolute favourite chicken katsu curries in London, in one of the most surprising venues. Actually it’s a really strange mix at Cafe Shelley’s. It’s a sandwich bar, doing Turkish-type wraps, salads and jacket potatoes. Not other Japanese foods in sight. Rumour has […]

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 pick is Japanese Canteen.

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 […]

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 options all seen the same. The food’s alright. I had the katsu curry which neatly comes with the curry sauce seperate and you can also get some extra toppings.
