We were on the way to see The Banshees of Inishfree at the pictures in the new (-ish) development in Finsbury Park and with one of us doing Japanese lessons Tonkotsu seems to be a logical manoeuvre. Trade wasn’t brisk on a Saturday teatime but the welcome was friendly and we got a table near…
I now found that darts makes me hungry so we headed northwards in search of curry. But it being Monday a lot of places were shut (I'm guessing some of them were also just shut full stop) so by the time we were nearly at Warren Street James pointed out that the best restaurant when you were hungry was the one you were eating food in.++++ Wise advice and we chose to eat at Nazuki Garden based on its being the restaurant we could see when we had that discussion.
Perfect Katsu makes Machiya the go to Japanese in the West End for lunch and better value than Shoryu around the corner. No wonder people queue out the door to get in.
Eeels are good, eels are good their bloody eels are good.
Beats Shoryu round the corner for broth and peace. Oh, and dry humping.
Shory deliver good food at an affordable price with just enough quirkiness and variety to mark them out from your Wagyermamas or Yos.
Good value, hearty Japanese luncheon in a handy location for the BM.
Good Japanese on a Saturday night.
