Yaki Japanese Bakery - London Goodge Street

Er I went to a zumba class today, and secretly I enjoyed it... reminded me of being back in secondary school!! ^_^ Well now I'm going to talk about food... XD

When I went to eat at Koba with Miss Posh a few weeks ago we came across this place called Yaki which is a "Japanese Bakery". I wanted to try this place out because I haven't had an okonomiyaki for a while and wanted to try out their takoyaki balls. Well, I had a day off (the day before my birthday) and I decided to go here!

The place looks very neat. Has a Japanese feel to it...

I think I had a hard time deciding although I had already looked at the menu online beforehand... I wanted the Yaki-Combo! This meant I could have any okonomiyaki, 6 pieces of taco-yaki, a salad and a drink for £7.29. That's not a bad deal for lunch although just a tiny bit expensive.

Here's my okonomiyaki with some brown sauce and mayo on top. I chose the ham and cheese filling. Unfortunately it wasn't that great. I miss the taste of the cabbage and the way it's prepared (like the one in Brixton).

Here's my drink and my udon salad... These weren't bad at all, and I really like this! The salad dressing was not bad at all.

I actually did take a close up picture of the taco-yaki, unfortunately it didn't capture the images onto my phone :( ... The taco-yaki was cold I'm afraid and so I didn't enjoy it that much.

The one thing I did enjoy was this banana and choco tai-yaki!! It was freshly made, and it just tasted awesome!! This one's a thumbs up!

Banana and chocolate filling!! Yummy!!
Total cost came to £9.28. It wasn't a very bad meal, but the food could have been hotter.

My geeky rating: 3.5/5

Good points:
- The tai-yaki was a surprise. It tasted really good!
- Clean place
- Nice service

Bad points:
- Hot food became cold food too quickly
- Just a little expensive for lunch

Address: 53 Goodge St, London W1T 1TG ‎

    1. I defo recommend the tai-yaki. I want to try out the green tea and white chocolate one. They've also got azuki cheese (i think that's azuki beans and cheese) - weird combo!

    It seldom sees in Japan~~.
    I think AZUKI is the best.
