A couple of days after visiting My Old Place I decided it was about time I went to Japanese Canteen. I had seen this place a year ago and haven't even tried it out!! When I passed it during the evening it was quite busy and I saw the sign Korean fried chicken, and thought I must go and eat there!!
I got there just after it opened, and there were already customers sitting around! There's an extensive menu of Korean and Japanese food. Not sure why there's Korean food when it's a "Japanese" restaurant but that doesn't matter as long as the food is delicious, simple and filling. ^_^

I ordered the Korean Fried Chicken donburi a.k.a "KFC" heheh. This came with rice and salad like a bibimbap with the hot stone bowl. The chicken was in a nice sticky sweet Korean red pepper sauce. It doesn't look hot but it definitely was spicy hot and hot, hot. I was pretty much full after eating this! Really, really filling if you're just looking for one dish to eat.

And I had to order takoyaki which was smothered in mayonnaise and okonomiyaki brown sauce. Quality of the takoyaki was good! Even the piece of the octopus was substantial. ^_^ Too bad there were only 4 pieces. I would have liked it if there were two more. ¬.¬"

My geeky rating: 5/5
- A combination of Korean and Japanese food
- Very spacious
- Polite service
- Cheapish and affordable for a night out
- Nothing I can think of really!

Next stop was Tower of London. I could have walked from Liverpool Street to there but was lazy and got the bus. ¬_¬" Ms LǜFù informed us about this so I thought I might as well have a look.
The surroundings of Tower of London is filled with poppies (which are not real, they are made out of ceramic). This is to commemorate Remembrance Day on November 11th.

Let's remember the heroes and the soldiers who fought during WW1...
