    Cheese and omelette and some deep fried thing with a sweet curried gloop poured on top. There's times when that is a very appealing idea to me.

    Im in here now. It's exactly what I expected. Exactly what I needed. Really good hangover food. Healing.
    Will definitely come again.

    One of the things I had was tofu with preserved eggs it was delicious. I always get the cucumber in these places and I always get the dry fried green beans.

    I have no clue what a tsing tsao is and now I'm reading about a WW1 siege.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Siege_of_Tsingtao

    The Siege of Tsingtao, sometimes Siege of Tsingtau, was the attack on the German port of Tsingtao (now Qingdao) in China during World War I by Japan and the United Kingdom. The siege took place between 31 October and 7 November 1914 against Imperial Germany. The siege was the first encounter between Japanese and German forces, the first Anglo-Japanese operation of the war, and the only major land battle in the Asian and Pacific theatre during World War I.[4]

    When we were planning a visit to London and would have preferred to stay where we could find good restaurants within walking distance. On a travel forum we were recommended to use Food Near Me apps that really work fine

    Yeah fair enough, I do just kinda feel that Japanese curry can be largely replicated by buying a katsu sauce from the supermarket and a trip to the chicken shop. Obviously it makes sense that we've taken to Katsu, but generally Brits have better access to cooking facilities than students in Asia and can knock their own simple grub together. Admittedly we've largely forsaken deep fat fryers thanks to public safety announcements during the 1980s, but most of those dishes can be replicated with relative ease.
    I remember having fantastic home-cooked Japanese curry when I was in Osaka. It is a bit like the best casserole you've ever had, though, so I see the Brit-link....

    hope you got suitable visa innoculations etc for north london

    this place https://www.bangbangoriental.com sadly seems a pale imitation of the former Yaohan Plaza https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Oriental_City which was as close as you could get to neuromancer in 90's london

    That's where I went. I never went to the original so can't judge whether it is a pale imitation or not. It is weird up in the highlands of north London with the big suburban villas and the empty streets.
