the return to London – but still Asian at heart

I’ve been back in London, finally part of the real working world meaning that i’ve been getting a bit(very) lazy about keeping up my blogging habits. But, considering today is the last day on my annual leave I finally feel a bit re-inspired again to start blogging again. I’ve still kept a journal off all the food I have sampled, and looking through my phone, I think this post should be dedicated towards all those weekends that I had off sampling Asian fare with a friend that I am so so so lucky to have by my side through all these years.

*note and there was a dan dan noodle dish as well which was quickly devoured before photo opportunity…

- we also frequented the atari ya near bond street (a favourite) for their ever so reliable chirashi sushi (nom nom nom)

As much as we both enjoy the culinary diversity of London, Asian food always strike close to the heart for comfort.   London’s Asian food scene has become much more developed since my arrival to the UK in 2007- enough for me to now frequent different restaurants now on a weekly basis!
