I could eat my body weight in sushi.


Mustache man and I have finally discovered a tiny little authentic japanese restaurant which is surprisingly affordable in Clapham - Sushibar Tokiya.

Sorry, Fujiyama (another favorite japanese joint in south london), but the dragon eel roll at Tokiya has killed it tonight. Prepared with such love and beautifully presented, I've inserted a photo for everyone to drool over. The dragon roll is a concoction of eel, avocado, scallops, cucumber, spicy mayonnaise, a touch of sriracha sauce (for that added kick) and seasoned with watercress and roe. It was the highlight of the meal.

You'll notice the soft shell crab roll in the bottom of the photo, we also tried the prawn tempura roll and chicken gyoza which I'll definitely be ordering next time.

Don't miss the green tea.

What I love most about this joint is the authenticity, the service is impeccable, the decor is simple and the food divine. I'd imagine sushi bars in Tokyo to resemble this place. Afterall, the chef has over 30 years of experience and was trained in Tokyo.

Arigato gozaimasu.
