If in London, Try the Sushi at This Place and You’ll Fall in Love with Japanese Food

Day 80/365: That chef’s selection was life-altering!

Our order, enough food to satisfy, but not bloat, extremely delicious. Less is more!

I’m a big fan of Japanese food. I take my weekly portion of ramen very seriously and, even though I know it’s never going to be even close to the real deal, I’m still enjoying it and feel like a Japanese while eating it. No pun intended. When I’m going out to eat, I usually do it because of a craving, as I’m not a big fan of traditional, big menu places.

Last week in London, I was craving some sushi, so I went on TripAdvisor and found Kappa, a little place a few blocks away from my hotel in Kensington.

Now, for those of you who don’t know, Kensington is one of the richest neighbourhoods in London, where people drive Ferrari’s and Bentley’s much more than they do old black cabs.

With that in mind and with a 4,5 rating on TripAdvisor, a nice decor and just a few seats available, I expected to pay half of my vacation money on a tuna roll and a bowl of ramen.

Fortunately, I found the prices at Kappa to be more reasonable then I could’ve ever dreamed. Actually, the whole meal set us back less than 30 pounds, which is an amazing deal for a lunch for two.

The interior was decorated simply, with only a few tables, but a lot of personality

We had the nigiri and maki set, 7 pics of nigiri sushi hand-selected by the chef and 6 pics of the avocado salmon roll. The fish was crazy fresh, soft and delicious. The rice was the best sushi rice I’ve ever tried, simply beautiful. My favourite was the shrimp nigiri, which was melt-in-the-mouth soft and full of flavour. The rolls were decently sized and very filling.

We also had the shrimp tempura, 5 huge shrimps covered in a sweet, light batter that floated in our mouths as it disappeared. They offered us a miso soup on the house, as the set came with only one bowl, but also water, which was an amazing gesture from the staff.

Overall, the food was simply stunning and when I’m going back to London I’ll definitely revisit this place for some ramen and other Japanese dishes.

If you’re a fan of sushi or a virgin of Japanese cuisine, you have to check this place out. This is not a paid endorsement, it’s just my way of thanking the staff of this little gem of a place, steps away from the Earl’s Court Underground Station in Kensington, for their service and delicious food, and for turning an ordinary lunch in London into an experience to remember forever.

Thank you for your time!
