|Outside Japan Centre (it's the shop in the middle)|
Well now they are all split up. One of the popular ones is now on the top of Regent's Street (opposite Tesco and Whittards). Piccadilly, I would say is London's Japan City for me! :D You will see a lot of Japanese stores (clothes and hidden food stores in the backstreets).
I find myself always wandering around in Japan Centre because you will find some foods that you can't find in other places. For example their 'character breads' or curry pan (curry bread). There are similar breads in China Town and a bit cheaper but sometimes I cannot escape from the Japanese versions. ^^
|Character Bread (this one had a red bean filling)|
|Curry bread and Custard bread ^^|
|Cheap nori and expensive ramen ~~~|
|Japan Centre's Mugi Miso|
|Strawberry and Custard Dorayaki a.k.a Pancakes but with fillings in between!! Yummy!!|
|Curry Pretz!! Woah!!|
|New range of sushi|
The final part you need to check out are their frozen foods... A particular Japanese favourite are fishcakes which can be found there. If you are looking for the naruto one, they have them too but sometimes they run out of stock (I don't like the naruto one - it's really fishy!). Instead, try out the pink (or white) kamaboko (this is a bit sweet and not fishy) or the baked fishcake (this one is fishy). ^^ You should look out for the ice cream too!! ^^

So, using some of the ingredients I bought, here's a spicy and tasty ramen I made... It was DELICIOUS (but a little salty).
