Today I needed my Nippon Kitchen fix, as I had just been to the Blythswood Square Gin Festival and was hungry.

I always find I am very relaxed here, and enjoy the atmosphere and more so the food which is why I keep coming back. I did enquire if Nippon Kitchen has a Twitter account, but at the time of writing this they still don’t but you can find them on Facebook.

I am going to shock you all, well the ones that are regular readers of my blog…..I had 3 different dishes…..hope you were sitting down reading that part.

Starter :

Yasai Korokee (V) : £4.50
Sweet potato cakes deep fried in panic breadcrumbs, served with Japanese fruity sauce and mayonnaise.

This was very light, and had a nice flavour. The sauce was really good, and boosted the flavour that little more.

Portion size it was perfect for a starter.

Portion Size : 5
Flavour : 4
Presentation : 3.5

Main :

10 Piece Special Maki Sushi : £11.00
Crispy soft shell crab and tempura king prawns rolled with cucumber and mayonnaise topped with fresh king prawn and sesame seeds.

Can you really go wrong with sushi? yes you can but anytime I have had it here its been perfect.

This was a smaller size for me, and also a different style of sushi than I normally have.

I really like this, the flavour was really good and the tempura king prawns added a really nice taste and texture to each bite. The rice was perfect as it didn’t fall apart, which I have found a few places in Glasgow this happens.

Portion Size : 5
Flavour : 5
Presentation : 5

Drink :

Coconut Juice

I decided to try this knowing nothing about it, apart from it should taste like Coconut.

I was very surprised with this, as the flavour was not overpowering and it was very thirst quenching. As you can see by the photo there are little bits at the bottom of the glass, these are actual coconut pieces.

I can’t remember the cost but it was under £5, when I return I will remember to take note.

Overall :

Overall another very satisfied visit to Nippon Kitchen, the service etc were all very good today and I am glad I tried a few new different dishes.

Nippon is still my current favourite in Glasgow for Japanese and Sushi.

Lychee Oriental Restaurant (Glasgow) : Review

59 Mitchell Street

Visit Date : Saturday 3rd September 2016

First Impressions :

I have been to Lychee before but this will be my first blog review.

Lychee is for me the best Asian restaurant in Glasgow, I have a tried a few but this for me is the best.

Inside has been done up nicely its a mix of fancy and relaxing, the staff are always very pleasant and very attentive.

The Food :

I normally get the same starter ever time when I go to a Chinese, or get a takeaway so tonight I decided to try something different. I went for the Chilli N Salt soft shell crab, I am a big fan of crab stick and thought this would be perfect for me.

For me this was nice, but the chilli flavour over powered the crab flavour which was disappointing but don’t get me wrong it was nice but I don’t think I would get this again due to this.

This is my fav main dish, its a must for me every time and I never get sick of it. As you can see this is presented in a nice noodle basket (you can eat this if you like but its hard and cold), and the colouring of the dish is just right.

Overall :

Again it was excellent service, very tasty food, plesant staff.

If you like Chinese food, then here is a must and for me its the best in Glasgow.
