Turning Japanese.



Sakura Sushi Lunch

Time for a bit of my second passion on French for Cupcake now, food! I'm part of a competition over here at So Feminine to write about your favourite food (if you love food as much as I do check out their recipes page, some great stuff) so I went out a few days ago for lunch and thought I'd share the photos.

One of my absolute favourite places to eat in Belfast is Sakura, I love Japanese food and they do amazing sushi. And only £1.80 a plate at lunchtime, yum! If you remember I am going back to Japan in September and I'm not going to lie - one of the things I am most excited about is the food. I can't get enough of it! I was a bit apprehensive last time I was there but I'm more adventurous now and can't wait to stuff myself with gyoza dumplings, ramen and sushi. I'm not even a big fish fan, but something about fresh fish with rice and soy sauce does it for me. And if you don't like fish Sakura has loads of sushi made with other meats or veggie options. I had salt and chili squid and Miso soup as well. Both amazing, I've never had better cooked squid anywhere else.

Sticking with the Japanese theme I thought I'd show you some of the photos from my last trip there. Er, my style has changed somewhat since I was 18!

I can't wait to share my photos from my upcoming trip with you. What's your favourite food? Are you an adventurous eater?

p.s. This post was not sponsored by Sakura in any way, I just really love them! Be sure to check them out on Botanic Avenue if you are in Belfast.

    Can't wait to see your photos, I'm sure you'll have an amazing time, I've wanted to visit for ages but I guess I'll just have to live vicariously through you!

  12. NOM NOM NOM! I'm a big sushi fan too! Usually it's Yo sushi! but these smaller places must be more authentic :) That's very exciting about your trip, especially that you've got the chance to go back after one amazing trip! Definitely somewhere I'd like to go :) ♥ Claire @ Jazzpad
