Kyodai Katsu, Carnegie, Melbourne

Kyodai Katsu, Carnegie, Melbourne

I feel like I’ve had a bit of a tonkatsu renaissance of late, having been lucky enough to visit Japan and visit some top tonkatsu restaurants around the world. Closer to home, we have Melbourne’s second katsu specialist restaurant: Kyodai Katsu in Carnegie.

Tokyo Diner, Chinatown, London

Tokyo Diner, Chinatown, London

It’s a bit of a shame that I discovered Chinatown’s Tokyo Diner so late. It’s humble, minimalistic style reeks of authenticity. I’d love to try more of what they have to offer. And to it’s credit, it carries all the successful hallmarks of an actual […]

Fuwa Fuwa Japanese Pancakes, The Annex, Toronto

Fuwa Fuwa Japanese Pancakes, The Annex, Toronto

Asian dessert alert! This time it’s the Soufflé Pancakes brought to you by Fuwa Fuwa Japanese Pancakes. These spongy treats are much more eggy and thick than your normal breed. And like the name, they are fluffy, fluffy.

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 […]

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.

Tonkotsu, Soho, London

Tonkotsu, Soho, London

Tonkotsu is one of my preferred ramen joints in the city. There’s less of a crowd than say, Bone Daddies, and the location can sometimes be more convenient than the likes of Kanada-ya. I’ve frequented at both lunch and dinner times and I’ve been pleased […]

Kamakura, Luxembourg

Kamakura, Luxembourg

You can find the best Japanese in Luxembourg at Kamakura, named after the former capital of Japan. I have some difference on opinion on the rating of Michelin Bib Gourmand. That award has a price cap of €40 and that would get easily surpassed on […]

Eat Tokyo, Holborn, London

Eat Tokyo, Holborn, London

You can never know for sure, but although I had another decent meal at another Eat Tokyo, my stomach was feeling worse for wear afterwards. I’ve been to exactly one other branch of this chain and the game here is the same. Cheap, fast, fuss-free Japanese cuisine in the heart of London. The menu at Eat Tokyo is always mammoth, but I ended up wanting to get the bento box again.
