衣服穿好,就要找吃的了!英国经常被世界各地的人们嘲笑没有可吃的,好吃的,会吃的。堂堂一个各方面都走在世界前几位的国家,最有名的美食竟然就是个炸鱼配薯条!这可能是有些夸张的说笑,也不足以真的认真去计较。可是这样的说法要是放在伦敦,可真的是对这个城市有些不公平!伦敦无疑是全球拥有最多餐馆的城市之一。先不要说这里的人会不会煮,他们有多会吃是毫无疑问的!只有想不到的,没有这里吃不到的。伦敦人把全世界的菜系美食包容进来,传统的,现代的,各种派别相互碰撞混合的,是真正有着海纳百川的气派。日式拉面这两年在伦敦也盛行了起来。我这里说的Shoryu-升龙,是其中最流行的一间。从餐厅创意,口味,到装潢,市场推广,都很有值得借鉴思考的地方。也是它开店几年以来人气丝毫不见衰弱的原因。

London is an amazing city. I'm constantly stunned by its capacity to accommodate new cultures and ideas, while at the same time remaining so "English" at the core. 

But let's talk a bit about fashion first? I have been living in this coat ever since I got it. An oversized coat with dropped shoulders and baggy sleeves: ideal for layers and layers underneath, or any batwing design tops. The thick and heavy wool provides just enough warmth without compromising on style.


// Belted Wool Coat from Gestuz //

// Beige Turtleneck (similar) from ASOS //

// Leggings (probably) from Uniqlo //

// Scarf (similar) from Forever21 //

// Boots (similar) from Chloé on Farfetch.com //

// Bag from Issey Miyake //

After a walk around the centre of Mayfair, seeing and breathing in all the Britishness of the environment, I felt like the warmth within my body slowly leaving me. I desperately needed something to warm up my body and soul. Naturally I decided to visit the Shoryu branch in Kingly Court, Carnaby street. On the way in, I pleasantly discovered that their lamp matched my bag, which to me, was fate telling me I made the right choice.(judge all you want)

Ramen shops have taken over London in the past 2,3 years or so. From Bone Daddies, Shoryu, to Ippudo and Kanada-ya, the ramen culture has slowly but surely applied its force onto many, many Londoners. I'm sure that Shoryu no breaking news for you who live in London and love to try different food. But it's always nice to revisit a restaurant many times and see the food quality and level of service maintained or even improved. Then you'll know what kind of business it is, and feel safe to go back again and again.

I ordered what Shoryu did best, which were the famous bun and ramen. Alongside of them, I couldn't help my curiosity and also ordered the "Cold Chicken Wings" and "Brussels Sprouts Tempura". The chicken might not be everyone's cup of tea. It was packed with flavours from different herbs and spices, but the texture was not as attractive as if it was hot and juicy. I found it interesting, but hubby loved it way more that I did.

Well the bun always impresses me. And it did it again. The soft and tender meat(I went for pork) with the bun fall apart in your mouth so easily as you bite into them with the slightest pressure. The texture was perfection. I had to fight hard with my urge to shove it in my mouth the moment it was on the table to take the picture.

Then it was my ramen. There were quite a few choices on the menu. But if I ever had the choice, I'd always go for cold noodles with hot soup(cold soup if in summer). It meant that I had more control. I could decide how dry/wet my noodles can be; how much soup, i.e. flavour I want to taste. Dip my noodles in the soup longer if I wanted it really hot, or pour a little soup on to the cold noodles if I wanted one bite completely cold. It was just much more fun to eat my ramen this way! It was the "Fire & Ice Salmon Tsukemen" on the menu, a real treat for myself.
