This small takeaway shop has a handful of seats and an excellent selection of healthy, yummy Japanese food.
This brightly lit little box of a takeaway shop is full of Japanese offerings. While there’s a sublime selection of sushi up for grabs – which comes fresh, flavoursome and funky-looking – there’s also an intriguing range of ramen, rice bowls and sides. The menu doesn’t offer much of an explanation, so be prepared to ask questions, take a risk or play it safe with items like chicken teriyaki or vegetable tempura. The spicy pork belly bowl doesn’t feature the giant, fatty chunks of meat you might expect – instead thin slivers of lean meat are gently woven through a hot sauce with vegetables, topped with crunchy beansprouts, carrots and broccoli. Although Japanese sausages may sound vaguely suspicious, if you’re more a bangers and mash type, give those yummy, smoky little guys a try – you’ll be pleasantly surprised. The dazzling white interior with a handful of seats and the sound of Clyde One doesn’t make it ideal for sitting in unless you’re looking for a quick bite on the run, but Okome would be excellent if you’re after a healthy, tasty takeaway.
