Brunch with a twist at MOMMI

Brunch with a twist at MOMMI


You may well be wondering why I’m blogging about brunch on a Japan blog, considering how brunch isn’t the first thing that springs to mind when you think of Japanese food. MOMMI, on Clapham High Street, is a funky Peruvian-Japanese restaurant I’ve been meaning to check out for ages and I was recently lucky enough … Continue reading

Dining out at Kiri!


One of the things I particularly like about London’s Japanese restaurant scene is that, despite how many places I’ve dined at, it doesn’t feel like I’ve tried everything. Yes, sashimi and sushi may be everywhere but it’s easy to stumble across a restaurant where the food’s been marinated in a special sauce or served in … Continue reading

Sophie’s London ramen round-up


Winter is here (even if it’s unseasonably mild), which means it’s perfect ramen weather.

With Louis Kenji … Continue reading

Japanese birthday dinner at Hare & Tortoise

Japanese birthday dinner at Hare & Tortoise


To give you an idea of how overdue this restaurant review is, I went to the Hare &Tortoise‘s Blackfrairs branch back in March for a birthday dinner with friends. Being me, I obviously wanted to go out for some delicious and affordable Japanese food in central London, and after some searching came across Hare &Tortoise. … Continue reading

Following the trends at Shackfuyu


If you thought Japanese food in England was starting to taste a bit ‘samey’ (not that I’ll ever get bored of sushi, donburi etc), head over to Shackfuyu in Soho in London as soon as you can! This pop-up restaurant is the latest venture by the Bone Daddies group and is open until next winter and will … Continue reading
