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 […]
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.
There’s a review for this place that simply summarised “the quality of the dim sum of horrific… but it at least has the decency to be cheap”. I was more complimentary. I was content with my recent outing, we were out for a leaving lunch for one of the office. Dim T Charlotte Street is in a beautiful, modern setting. The al fresco seating would have been fantastic for the incoming afternoon rays. As a pan-Asian restaurant, nothing on the menu has much authenticity in taste. You’d be forgiven if you thought these weren’t Asian dishes.
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 […]
I’ve had two experiences at Tombo Poke Matcha Bar in Soho. Once with the takeaway via MealPal and another for a sit down group meal. For both experiences I do find the food at Tombo Poke tasty and of high quality but the portions are […]
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.
Despite my internal protests, part of me is magnetised to Wagamama‘s. I end up eating there more than I realise. My big brother was visiting me from all the way from Aucks, and for whatever reason, it was the choice of location for our first […]
There’s two pseudo-Japanese cafe chains that you’ll get used to seeing lots of in London. One is Itsu, and the second is Wasabi. There’s not too much difference between them other than Itsu going for more of a health angle. Wasabi was first opened in […]
Since arriving in London I hadn’t made it out to a mall, and there’s something always reassuring about being in one. I think it has something to do with the fact that you can sustain a livelihood should you never want to leave. Clothes, entertainment, food, it’s all here. I for one, wouldn’t be disappointed should one day I accidentally got locked in a mall. Fingers crossed. Of the foodcourt choices at Shepherd’s Bush Westfield, or She-bu I was once told, Chikara Teppanyaki looked fair. Well, at least the plastic props give a good impression of the food.
I went for the £7.90 beef ramen, which was a stir fry. You get a buzzer and it isn’t too long for your order to be collected. It’s a nice little dish, but the beef has a rubberiness that tastes cheap and the noodles were a little sloppy. The teriyaki sauce was nice and at least didn’t have a food court standard of greasiness and regret after eating it. So you know, a fair dish that probably doesn’t taste quite as good as it looks.
