Japanese #10. Ten Ten Tei, Brewer St
Restaurant: Ten Ten Tei, Brewer St
Time: Wednesday lunchtime
Stand-out dish: Salmon Nigiri
It was always going to be hard to give a fair review to the restaurant after Sushi Tetsu. And whilst the sushi at Ten Ten Tai wasn’t Toru Takahashi’s standard, it certainly was tastier than my usual weekday lunches. The restaurant isn’t much to look at from the outside. And its a bit ramshackle within. But there are nice touches. Beautiful crockery. Free green tea. Welcoming staff. And the fish was full of flavour. Their sushi rice wasn’t sticky enough, and fell apart. And the wasabi didn’t have enough bite. But it was a solid lunchtime spot, and I’ll definitely be heading back again soon.
