Here’s a challenge for you. Try to find a cheap place in London’s Chinatown. Done? OK, now try to find one that’s also delicious. Not so easy now, ah?
Even though it might be cheating a bit, considering Misato is, after all, a Japanese spot, it’s not like Chinatown has many authentic Chinese places to begin with. And really, who cares. With dishes that are below £6, like this huge and delicious Chicken Katsu Teriyaki one, you won’t care either. The place might not look fancy, but that’s irrelevant. It’s Chinatown after all. You’re here for the food, and nothing else.
A deliciously katsu-style fried chicken, with an incredibly gooey teriyaki sauce, and served with enough rice to topple an empire, this one doesn’t just qualify as a great deal in Chinatown, it might very well be the BEST deal, period. Oh, and it has salad as well. In case you care about health and stuff.
So go ahead. The challenge stands. I shall keep looking, but chances are, I’ll just keep coming back to Misato.
Slimy? A teriyaki pool of gooey awesomeness. Handle chopsticks with care
Satisfying? Immense taste for a non immense value. Just perfect
