London is full of surprises. I was looking for a place for my Saturday lunch after visiting a Japanese department store Mitsukoshi's London branch. I was not too intrigued by the store, but I had the nicest lunch in their basement restaurant. All waiters Japanese and extremely friendly, it was a delightful experience from the beginning. Almost all the other customers were Japanese, that merely ever is the case at Yosushi!, Itsu or other overpriced London's Japanese restaurants. The Mitsukoshi restaurant itself was huge but still cozy and a bit worn out but well maintained. I chose a Mitsukoshi bento as my lunch followed by fruits and a pumpkin crème brûlée. I am a fan.
