A to Wa of Japan: Week 14

It’s time for A to Wa of Japan again! Last week’s post was about things beginning with し (shi) and we looked at Shimokitazawa (下北沢). This week we are looking at things beginning with す (su). A big thank you to everyone who joined in with suggestions this week: UK Seikatsu suggested sushi (寿司), Sugamo (巣鴨 / ‘Harajuku for old ladies’, … Continue reading

Ramen at Yo! Sushi

Ramen at Yo! Sushi

London has been hit by ramen-fever recently, with new restaurants popping up faster than you can say ‘noodles’. Everyone has been going crazy about Shoryu Ramen, Bone Daddies, Ittenbari and Mitsukoshi’s new ramen bar, among others. Unfortunately, I’ve not been able to sample the dishes at any of these restaurants though, as they all contain … Continue reading

Yo! Time to get cooking…

Yo! Time to get cooking…

It hadn’t occurred to me that people might think that YO!Sushi was England’s take on a sushi restaurant. This style of restaurant, in … Continue reading

Food and Drink at Hyper Japan

Japan is a food-tourist’s heaven, and Hyper Japan did a pretty good job of covering the basics. I would have liked to have seen more regional specialities, rather than the same sushi, takoyaki and noodles that are often available at events, though. The Eat-Japan Sushi Awards 2011: UK Sushi Roll Championships event at Hyper Japan was a real … Continue reading

Yo! Sushi

I’ve been back in England about a week and have been having some real pangs of “homesickness” for Japan, and cravings for Japanese food. Today, April 29th, was a day when most people in England were making the most of an extra day off work and celebrating the royal wedding.  I and my mum were … Continue reading
