Dozo Great

I’m an avid sushi fan and having read timeout top picks a few months ago, dozo was featured as a must (locations at South Kensignton and Soho) and it went straight on the eateries list. I am actually one of those people who could eat sushi for breakfast, lunch and dinner however one must have will power. 

So on Friday myself and my brother decided to have a family night and head for sushi. From the moment I walked in I knew I was going to enjoy it as there were plenty of Japanese people eating there which is always a good sign. When the locals eat there, you know you’ve done a good job.

So I went for Wakame (seaweed) I can see some of my friends pulling an eugh face however I absolutely adore it.  

 I also picked from the dozo roll menu and went for sea pearl Maki which consisted of Tempura batter, seared scallop, crabmeat, cucumber, saikyomiso yuzu, mayonnaise. 

 my brother went for the bento box where he tried the mixed grill box in which he got to sample some eel which surprisingly tasted like salmon … I had to have a nibble!

The bill came to £27.50 each including drinks which is a bit on the pricy side but it was definitely worth the visit.

Dare I say…. South West Meets West?

I have a confession………… I cheated on Earlsfield this weekend… #facepalm! 🙈 I know I know… I was meeting a friend who lives in the EAST SIDE 🙅 and we compromised on West, as we planned an outing to the Museum of Branding, Packaging and Advertising in Notting Hill (W11). We decided to lunch at Nama, a vegan restaurant in a lovely little area within Notting Hill territory! Now, Myself and MVA are not Vegans by any means but we are massive foodies, and the whole concept of tasting the flavours of raw food enticed us… so upon us the #RawFoodLiving we embarked.. 20141026-172312-62592006.jpg

I am not going to lie, it took us a good half an hour to decide on what we would try and in the end because we wanted everything we decided to get 3 dishes and share. Seaweed Salad (£9) , Sushi Platter (12.50) and Zucchini Pasta (£11) along with an almond milk cappuccino and a green juice for myself.

Seaweed Salad: Wakame and dulse seaweed salad with miso dressing.

Sushi Platter: Kohlrabi ‘rice’ , ‘roasted’ asian mushrooms, peashoots, carrots, spinach, cucumber and avocado, rolled in nori sheet (seaweed), served with a sesame dipping sauce and salad.

It looks yummy doesn’t it? Well I can confirm, it tasted as yummy as it looked. The seaweed salad being my fav. Even a couple of girls sitting alongside side of us butted in to ask what it was, (The seaweed salad) so they could order it…. and order it, they did!

When we asked for the bill, it arrived and we noticed that it specified if you downloaded the app Zapper you would get £5 off your first bill and so we did exactly that…. If you don’t have the app, download it now, it’s actually pretty cool – you add your card details and electronically send payment without using card machine. You can also split the payment. Really cool – Check it out!

Nama foods also offers raw food cooking/prep courses so it’s something to look at if you are interested in the whole vegan sector. Even if you aren’t a vegan like myself, it’s a good experience to trick your brain into thinking you are eating CHO like the Zucchini pasta etc.

Back to #EarlsfieldLiving now, but remember lets keep it green!!
