Ten Ten Tai
56 Brewer Street
Tel: 020 7287 1738
Date of Last Visit: Saturday, October 25th, 2008
The Victim: Me
The Damage: £15
The Background: I came down with a cold late last week that knocked me out Thursday night during the Wine Show and sent me home from work on Friday. Saturday wasn't much better, but I really had to get out of the house. At the very least, I needed some movies.
I had this idea that I would go out in search of non-Waga ramen noodles. Ramen would make me feel better. A bit of research and all signs pointed to Brewer Street in Soho, so I headed in that direction. I passed Inn Noodle on the bus and hit myself for forgetting all about it, and it would have been so much closer too. Next time.
Well, as I was walking down Brewer Street, I passed Ten Ten Tai just as a wave of exhaustion hit me. I didn't want to walk any further.
The Food: Some agedashi tofu. Which had been heated up because the tofu was cold in the middle but warm on the outside.
Some goma, spinach in sesame sauce, which was really excellent. (You can see a bit of it in the tofu photo.) But then again, I am a sucker for goma. And some hand rolls, all washed down with some miso and some green tea. Miso makes you feel better.
The Ambiance: None.
The Verdict: A little dingy. Service is sweet. I might give this another shot someday.
