Dinner at Nippon Kitchen

Last Friday I met up with my friend Heather to catch up over dinner. Since she works full time and travels a lot with her work, and I'm busy with university and my part-time job, we only see each other about once a month, but it's always really lovely to meet up and chat about what's going on in our lives. Moreover, it's a great chance to go out and treat ourselves to dinner, and this time we decided to go to Nippon Kitchen, which is one of Glasgow's most popular Japanese restaurants.

We arrived at about quarter to six and luckily got a table as the restaurant still wasn't too busy. It was soon filled with people though, and it seemed like most tables were booked, because we were only given an hour and a half at our table. Booking a table seems like a good idea if you're going to Nippon Kitchen on a weekend, especially if you're going later in the evening and you're more than two people. An hour and a half was plenty of time for us though.

To start, we shared some edamame and then we both got sushi for our main. I opted for the veggie selection, which is vegan! Just to be on the safe side I asked them to make sure not to put any mayonnaise on, but I don't think there would've been any either way. The sushi was really delicious, even though I would've preferred more of the inari sushi (the sweet tofu thing). I could probably eat a whole plate of only the inari sushi, because it's my favourite. 

The restaurant itself is a lovely mix of Japanese-inspired and old-fashioned Glasgow style, which works really well together. The staff were lovely and the service was really quick and efficient. There really wasn't anything that wasn't up to scratch, and I'm already looking forward to going back to Nippon Kitchen.

After our meal we went for a walk along the riverside, as it happened to be a really lovely evening.

Do you have a favourite Japanese/sushi restaurant where you live?

Love, Mimmi.
