Mei Ume Review

Mei Ume is an elegant restaurant in the Four Seasons that serves both Chinese and Japanese cuisine. I’m a self proclaimed sushi addict, but for a mix of reasons I hadn’t eaten sushi in over a month. I needed to fix that ASAP, and then I came across Mei Ume. The concept of Mei Ume…

Flesh & Buns Fitzrovia Review

Flesh & Buns is a indulgent Japanese restaurant focused on meat & seafood (flesh) and steamed fluffy bao buns. We absolutely love baos, but we love flesh & buns even more. We are regulars at Flesh & Buns Covent Garden, and it’s one of our favourite London restaurants, so we were so excited to try…

Black Roe – First Impressions

Black Roe serves Hawaiian inspired food and is the sister restaurant to our favourite Chotto Matte. We definitely had to drop by to see if it matched up to our all-time fave. The restaurant When you step inside, its low lit with a poke bar on one side by the entrance, the bar on the…

Kiru – First Impressions

I love sushi, but we haven’t been to a new Japanese restaurant in months because I have exhausted all the Japanese restaurants around us. All that’s left is West London, which is far! Lol. I’d come across quite a few Japanese restaurants in West London but there was always something missing (most of them just…

First Impressions – Nobu Shoreditch

Shiima and I absolutely love Nobu. We’ve had dinner at Nobu Berkeley Street on several occasions, celebrating birthdays, anniversaries, Eid, and New Year’s Eve. That ought to tell you something about Nobu … it’s a restaurant reserved for special occasions, and they know it. Nobu is a renowned international Japanese and Peruvian restaurant. Recently, when…

First Impressions – Oliver Maki

Last weekend, Shiima and I went to SushiSamba for our anniversary dinner. Shiima spontaneously decided to try the tiger maki, which wasn’t a terrible idea because the “fish” in the maki was prawn tempura, which is cooked. But try as she might, Shiima couldn’t eat it … because of the seaweed. So, I searched for…

Kurobuta Marble Arch

Kurobuta is a tapas style Japanese restaurant, in the vein of the Japanese Izakayas (like traditional pubs). We first became aware of Kurobuta when they were featured on Masterchef. A couple chefs cooked the lunch menu, supervised by the head chef Scott Hallsworth. The food looked really good, and the head chef seemed like a…

Solo Excursion – Dinings Marylebone

Dinings is a special Japanese tapas restaurant with locations in Marylebone, SW3, and Tel Aviv, with the restaurant on Harcourt Street in Marylebone being the original and “flagship” restaurant. To dine at Dinings is an experience that all lovers of sushi must try at least one. Every single dish I had was so really good…

First Impressions – Sakagura

Sakagura is morden Japanese restaurant off Regent Street that prides itself in serving “Washoku”, which is essentially traditional Japanese food – lots of sushi and miso dishes. I came across Sakagura last year while searching for restaurants to go on a solo excursion. The menu looked rather promising with quite a few chicken dishes, so…

Aqua Kyoto

Aqua Kyoto is the Japanese half of the Aqua restaurants in Soho, approaching Carnaby Street. The other restaurant on the same floor is Aqua Nueva, which is a Spanish restaurant. Both restaurants have pretty cool adjoining bars and rooftop terraces, all of which I recommend, but as you’d expect this post is only about the…
