Review: Tsujiri Tea House, Soho, London

Tsujiri, 47 Rupert Street, London, London W1D 7PD, GB Visited April 3rd 2018 There are so many amazing places to eat and drink in London, especially if you love oriental food like me.

Review: Café An-An, Portslade

Visited 2nd August 2016 Café An-An, 27 Boundary Road, Hove, BN3 4EF When I discovered Café An-An online, it first stood out to me because of its trip advisor reviews; every single one has given it five stars and commented on how authentic the food is.

Visited: 24th April 2016 Minamoto Kitchoan Minamoto Kitchoan is a small shop in Piccadilly that is exclusively dedicated to Japanese sweets.
