And Spanish, well I did practically grow up there.
I've STILL not been to Japan, im SO desperate to go, infact so much so that I like to throw the odd Japanese night at mi casa. Tokyo, Mile End. Same, Same. There was the time I dressed as a geisha and Kate dressed as HELLO KITTY
Who knew you could do THAT with a pillowcase. I applaud you Andrews.
And there was the time Florence Welsh came over for a Japanese night thinking it was a warehouse party and it was me and my brother being cooked tea by my Japanese photographer friend Yukuske. She was pretty wasted so didn't seem to notice, then she serenaded me with a song about my ex boyfriend running off with a GoGo dancer. #alltrue #toughlife #shouldhaveboughtapole and then she put her cigarette out on my kitchen floor which I ALLOWED coz I love that 'you've got the lurrrveeee, you've got the luurruurururrurve to see me through' song.
If only Fi had had got the memo that it was a JAPANESE night and that a sari isn't quiiiiittteee the same thing.
Anyway I'm digressing with my #TBT that's a THROWBACK THURSDAY mum, she's just getting her head round hashtags. For tea tonight I went to my Favourite Japanese in London and low and behold it's in Mile End *coughs* well Aldgate East but whatevs.
The salmon and avocado roll and tekka maki- that's right, I know the lingo
Ebi tempura, make sure you have the boiled one and not the sweet one that's raw and tastes of slime.
Prawn tempura - you may notice this is not the same photography, that's coz its off google. I'd necked the lot before I'd managed to snap shots.
Bloody amazing.. Really fresh, pretty healthy. Batter and pork fat IS healthy if you eat it with sushi. And who would have known this gem was nestled in the mean streets of East London. May as well cancel that flight, who needs Tokyo when you've got amazing food, a kimono and a pillowcase and you can get yourself home in time for corrie. #winning.
