Japanese #19. Kanada-Ya, St Giles High St

Restaurant: Kanada-Ya, St Giles High St
Time: Wednesday lunchtime
With: –
Stand-out dish: Aburi Chashu
Very small and jam packed. The doors are locked, and they turn you away if they’re full. Clever use of space – there are mirrors on ceiling to make it feel bigger, and a semi-circular window that connects kitchen with dining. The ramen was some of the best I’ve had this year. I ordered the Tonkotsu X. But it was the seared pork belly that stole the show – it had a deep charr flavour that may well be my favourite dish of the challenge thus far.
