Sapporo has to be one of the best restaurants I have been fortunate to eat at. Ok so it’s not in London which my blog is based on but its an absolutely incredible place and with tables fully booked for the next four weeks, I had to seize my chance.
I’ve never been to a Teppanyaki place before so I did not know what to expect. I thought it was going to be an evening of good Asian food but with that tackiness theatre style that you would expect from those buffet restaurants. Oh how wrong was I.
After a little mishap with my booking at reception (where they couldn’t find my booking), my eventful evening was about to unfold. Whilst waiting for my table, I treated myself to an awesome cocktail known at the “Easy Ninja”, similar to a Pina Colada (cue Pina Colada song) but with Sake added to it. A delicious fruity, creamy cocktail and trust me after having one of these, you’ll be knocking them back all night. Even the lady next to me during dinner was intrigued by it and asked me what it was.
