Japanese Underground Lunch #1 review

Japanese Sunday ended up being a very long and leisurely lunch into dinner! It was mellow and relaxing and the food t’weren’t too bad neither! I only had time (cough cough remembered) to take a mere two photos. Thankfully, Mitsu— yes, THAT Mitsu of To Happy Vegans was here (AND her Japanese mum. Talk about pressure!). Anyway! She took a bunch breathtaking photos and gave the dinner a lovely, lovely review. Check it out here! (And while you are there, check out their new Vegan Food Swap for the UK!)
