After braving the packed aisles of the Japan Centre and the crowds of Japanese tourists at Mitsukoshi I was in need of a break so I headed next door to Itsu. Owned by the people behind Pret a Manger, Itsu has 2 restaurants and 27 cafe/shops across London. Inside the decor is modern and shiny and the food looks good. Itsu's mantra is 'health and happiness' and aims to provide healthy, nutritious and filling food inspired by the Far East, the menu includes a good selection of Japanese-
inspired sushi. The menu also includes noodle and rice pots, frozen yoghurts, salads and sandwiches. I visited the shop on Lower Regent Street, where happily it was calm and quiet, and enjoyed the 'Health & Happiness' sushi box which consisted of delicious, thick slabs of salmon sashimi, salmon and tuna nigiri and california rolls all served with seaweed and lots of soy sauce. At £9.59 it wasn't cheap but it was tasty, fresh and so generous that I couldn't finish it all. I also bought some dark chocolate-covered rice cakes as a snack for later.
