Seafood temple – Güeyu Mar

Last night at Güeyu Mar, another seafood temple, that’s been on my list for a while. The simple restaurant steps away from a beach specializes in the local seafood, namely deep seawater “Rey fish”, that is very similar to or same (?) as Splendid Alfonsino or Kinmedai ( キンメダイ). The…

Cafe Japan

Top-notch sushi at Cafe Japan in Golders Green, London, which uses the best ingredients for a very good value and has one of the best sake selections in London (as it’s owned by Atariya group). Book the counter seat when Fukushima-san is there.

Pujol Restaurant, Mexico

Pujol Restaurant, Mexico

Pujol Restaurant, Mexico

Never in my wildest dreams I’d think that tacos with escamoles (ants eggs) could taste so good or I would try them at all. Or that gusanos de maguey (mezcal worms) give that nice unique smokey flavour you cannot replicate. My short term plan in Mexico City is to try…

Em Sherif, Beirut

My July trip to Beirut was an eye-opening experience, because just like when I first had Japanese food in Japan, in Beirut I realized that I’d never had Lebanese food this good. Like many Middle Eastern cuisines, best Lebanese is cooked at home and this is the feeling you have…

Ikoyi, London

Ikoyi, London

Ikoyi, London

Very interesting cooking at West Africa flavours inspired Ikoyi in London, a brainchild of Chinese Canadian philosopher turned chef Jeremy Chan. He chose this African region, because it’s still unexplored and there are “countless possibilities of interpretation and creativity”. Before opening Ikoyi 7 weeks ago, he researched for a few…

Xu, London

Xu, London

Xu, London

While I am not a big fan of baos at Bao London, the new restaurant by same owners looks promising. XU is a take on 1930s Taipei tearoom and serves revisited Taiwanese cooking. Some dishes were better than others, but, overall, it was a good experience.
