I bought three items which I found interesting…
First was this beef ball. Wow it’s massive! Looks crispy on the outside… but what’s inside?
Overall a good experience! Total spent was £6 if I remember correctly…

My purse feels a lot more lighter with these plastic notes!
No exact date has been mentioned on when the old £10 note expires – likely March or April!
Mr Cake made this gigantic pirate ship cake… Every part, apart from George, the Lego and flag parts were all edible… I have no idea how he designed them. Ideas must flow in his head, like I do with my 3D Origami and other creative works. Heheheheh.
It was all amazing! Very tasty too… Not too sweet. And thankfully it was soft icing… Yummy! Chocolate cake! Many have said Mr Cake should go on that baking programme… Well that’s up to him I guess… 🙂
Here’s a covered up pic of Baby B… Getting cheeky now… She snuck her cousin’s dummy on. Tut tut.
And Miss Pinky with Baby B… She was stressed out the night before. For real. We were doing last minute preparations – still trying to catch up on my sleep!
When the guys started cooking my orders, I could smell an aroma like garlic and ginger just lifting my moods and opening my appetite… I was ready to eat!!
Came with a mustard dipping sauce…
And this was my second starter… I like Japanese fried chicken… This was really hot when it came out… Tried to resist eating it all in one go before the ramen came out…
And finally my tonkotsu ramen came out! It already came with the sesame seeds inside and other toppings. Unlike some other Japanese restaurants where you can add your own bits and pieces in you can’t seem to this here in Okan…
So what about the soup? It was nice and creamy, not too salty and not too bland. The noodles were nice and thick, not the typical thin sort of ramen you would see in the Central London restaurants. It came with only one piece of chashu which was a little disappointing but I guess the soup does make up for it.
The soup felt it was never ending, but I drank the lot…

After cooking it came out like this… I think I should have added more water…
Update 04/11/2017 – went to Japan Centre today, and they’re selling this in store (instead of online) including the dipping one… will blog about that one soon!
As you enter you’ll see a food counter and a bit home-ware…
Liking the light bulb arrangement!
Then you go down some stairs and you’re greeted with a big food area and I feel the shopping area has gone a little smaller… maybe because lots of stock had gone beforehand. Hmmm.
On exiting to the till area, you’ll see a lot of raw meat, fish and a whole big section of sushi.
I’m trying to cut down on the rice, but that might not be possible if I came here all the time!! ^_^

After almost two hours of travelling here and there and everywhere, plus meeting up quickly with Miss Money to give her a very early birthday present, I finally found this Japanese restaurant along near a side street on Tottenham Court Road and not far from Goodge Street Station.
The Hello Kitty theme at this restaurant is a 6 week event and ends on October 8th. So sorry for my late posting for those extreme Hello Kitty fans in London!!
This is the limited edition of the Hello Kitty menu.
And this is the other Tombo I ended up in. However they do sell the Hello Kitty merchandise!
