A big thank you to my new friends at Qype
Last week the lovely people at Qype invited Lea and I out for a sushi and sake evening at Tsuru – a new Japanese restaurant in Southwark. It’s located in the very heart of the soul-less Bankside123 development – but fortunately isn’t tarred with the usual homogenous chainstore brush. The food and matching sake (courtesy of the Akashi-Tai Sake brewery) was probably the best Japanese culinary action I have ever experienced. And I’m now a total fan of sake – having washed everything down with a huge variety of fermented rice juice. Yum! But I’m not going to say any more about the meal here. Instead, you can read my raving review on Qype. Then I can skip on to talking about my fellow diners.
They were a mix of influential London bloggers and web 2.0-ists, including Annie Mole from the London Underground blog, Mex from Moo.com, Chris and Hazel from the Londonist, Niamh from eatlikeagirl, Tim from theplummetonions, Rob and Sabrina from Qype and, of course, my lovely fiancée. And because we’re all a bunch of opinionated yakkers, our conversations outlasted the meal and we had to continue them at a nearby pub (before abandoning them unfinished at chucking-out time).
So a big thank you to everyone for a great night. And I’m already looking forward to a sequel in the near future.
