I came here for one thing and one thing only – the Sushi Love Boat. Only a combination of boredom and sheer greed could explain my willingness to fork out good money for this. Priced at £68 instead of £50 as stated on their website, you certainly do not get what you pay for. My three companions still managed to polish off a main dish each immediately after we demolished this platter (in about 30 minutes, by the way).
Halal Dim Sum?! We were admittedly sceptical too, but Kowloon Express left us satisfied and impressed.
Located at the new-ish Clementi 321, this branch of the restaurant is just a few minutes’ walk from Clementi MRT Station, and we like this mall for its quiet environment, in contrast to the nearby Clementi Mall and Central. (more…)
Could it be? Obviously at S$1.9 per tart (versus BAKE’s S$3+) we couldn’t seriously complain. Despite that, these KFC cheese tarts were decent. Unlike BAKE’s, however, these were akin to mini cheesecakes, given the absence of a runny, molten cheese filling. (more…)
The ambience was cosy. Our server was nice. Did the food take me back to Asia? Not really. But I suppose this is Chinese food in London – what can you expect? It was quite affordable at least, costing ~£25 for three people.

I ordered Hummus Bros’ set meal (£8.40) which included a small beef and aubergine bowl with pitta bread, tabouleh salad, and a fresh mint and ginger lemonade. Delivery was £2.50, but with the voucher, my total only came up to £5.90. (more…)
Arriving at 12:30pm on a Saturday, a fairly long queue greeted us at Kanada-Ya, despite being directly opposite Japanese ramen chain Ippudo. Undeterred by the snow, cold and rain, we persevered, and it paid off.
We decided to order the Tonkotsu X (£10.50), as it was unique to London. It consists of pork and chicken broth, wood ear fungus, pork belly chashu, seaweed and spring onion. Their ingredients are flown from Japan, and the skill and care taken in preparing them is evident. (more…)
