Sticks & Sushi

The glorious sun decided to make a short appearance over London town last weekend before the dark clouds took over.

We wasted no time and decided to walk to Covent Garden to grab some sushi for lunch. There were a couple detours on the way to pick up some nutella cupcakes from hummingbird and a photo opportunity to capture one of my first no fur or puffy jacket appearances this year. I usually feel frozen for 8 months of the year.

I absolutely love these jimmy choo’s and can totally live in them. Leather jacket from Zara, sweater from Uniqlo, leggings from Nike and of course my favourite boy (may be talking about my photographer or bag)!

We made it in time for some sticks and sushi. The walk took a bit longer as we decided to explore the glorious streets of London. They never fail to disappoint and I always seem to discover something new.

Sunday lunch without a cheery drink is not allowed. I went for a yellow juice while A went for a beer.

While nibbling on the scrummy edamame beans with spicy sauce we discussed the new restaurant openings around town. Went to a couple last weekend.

The crispy ebi bites arrived in no time and before we knew it they were all gone. I could have ordered another one but didn’t want to be too greedy.

We ordered some of our favourites, spicy tuna, California roll and the prawn tempura roll.

The California roll was so fresh and the crab, avocado and spicy soy made for a delicious bite.

The star of the day was the crispy tempura roll. Who doesn’t like a bit of crunch.

Finally we got the chicken meatball and lamb chop sticks. They both will be ordered again however I might get a couple more of the lamb next time. I like mine medium to well and you have to ask for it otherwise they are served medium.

We ate to our hearts’ content and decided to walk back home to burn all those calories. A’s got a one up on sticks and sushi as this was his discovery.

I would recommend booking as they were really busy even after the usual lunch hour.
