Sushi burrito??

The so-called fusion of cuisines can work really rather well in many cases. The combination of culinary traditions such as Japanese and Portuguese to give rise to the great Tempura is an example of the success that can be achieved. In many (many) other cases it may not work all that well… thinks like Vietnamese spaghetti bolognese or sauerkraut pizza are not that appetising… right?

Walking around Lethenhall Market in London the other day, I came across a sign for a place that I will have to give a go one of these days:



20140712 Hai Street Kitchen

Yes, you read that right, the place is called “Hai Street Kitchen & co” and they claim to be “London’s first Sushi Burrito Bar”. Who knows probably the Japanse-Tex-Mex fusion may not be all that bad… May that just be a really fat futomaki without slicing? Or perhaps a temaki rolled by a not very experienced cook? or something much more elaborate than that… Well, I will have to go and find out.


Chiles en Nogada

I was very pleasantly surprised by Cantina Laredo today.

The food was good and the service spot on. Not only that, but the girl behind the bar remember us from the last time we were there and… and also remember what we had ordered! Not that we had something out of the ordinary, but still!

Finally, if that was not surprising enough, it was great to see that the typical September dish called Chiles en Nogada was offered in the menu. Well done Cantina Laredo!
