Quality or quantity? Misato Restaurant

Misato, what to say about Misato restaurant?

A friend recommended this restaurant a few years ago, I went and tried it and I was very satisfied with it. I could not believe it was so affordable with many of the hot dishes below £6, the portions were and are still huge. I enjoyed gorging on sticky rice along with the breaded chicken katzu and the delicious curry sauce. I tasted their mixed sushi platter and tried salmon and chicken teriyaki bentos. It was bliss, love at first taste. However, I did not have much experience with Japanese food.

Years later after having tried several Japanese restaurants I can say that Misato is still pretty much a bargain but the quality of food is average nothing so special. There is always a queue which is usually a good sign, the staff is quite in a rush and also inattentive, however, thank God they are not rude which I really appreciate, there is nothing worst than going for a meal and relax and find grumpy servers.

However, I must say there was an episode when my sister found a hair in her dish and told the waiter who sounded annoyed at first and then he tried to convince her it was her own hair. Unbelievable, useless to say we stopped going there, we spend a little more for better quality food and a touch of style as Misato has very basic decor. Not suitable for a date if you want to impress. I gave it two stars as I am a foodie now and I like quality more than quantity.

Celebrating our Italian victory

Right right, for once please let me flatter myself. Yes, I am talking about the football match (partita di calcio) which happened yesterday: Italy – England 4-2. Supporting our team abroad makes Italians feel much more patriotic. We watched the game in a friend’s house; all of a sudden everyone became a football expert lol. We enjoyed our team trying so hard and mastering the game until the penalties. If only politicians could make such an effort, Italy would be number one economic power in the world. So it felt so good to feel proud of my country at least in the football field given the fact that in other fields it keeps on failing us. Anyhow, I don’t want to enter too much in details. Yesterday I cheered, I screamed I jumped and then I was off to Soho to join our compatriots in a bar just next to Bar Italia, the Italian icon of excellence. Enjoy the pics I really had a good time and Forza Italia!

P.s. there were also English supporters that were enjoying the party and drinking heavily hahaha
