Sakurado – The most colourful Japanese desserts

I recently had the pleasure to try out this cute little Japanese cafe in Putney. As far as it was from me (I’m based in East London), it was worth the trek! Just check out these super colourful Japanese cakes!

Here we have the Mille Crepes in the forefront. Flavours were (left to right): Raspberry, coconut, matcha and Mango.

In the background we have their cake rolls. Flavours were (left to right): chestnut, matcha, sweet potato and mango.

They taste as good as they look 😍

Sakurado is known for their desserts but their hot food is great too! They do a set lunch for £15 from Fridays – Sundays (no more weekdays!) so make sure you book ahead 🙂

Starter

A lovely mix of starter plates, from what I remember it was miso soup, pumpkin salad, sesame vegetables, pickled vegetables and matcha pudding. The mini bowls they come in is just too cute! My favourite was the pumpkin salad, mmm.

Chicken oyakodon; I only tried a bit of this but my god the egg was tasty. I highly recommend this one.

Salmon teriyaki: at first I thought this plate didn’t look like a lot but the onigiri’s were deceptively filling! The teriyaki sauce was delicious, wish there was more of it!

More dessert

Saving the best for last; the matcha tiramisu! The coffee was quite strong but I love coffee so it didn’t bother me. The matcha creme was strongly infused with matcha, and the combination of the matcha creme and the coffee base was perfect. I’ll honestly come back just for this!

Bumpkin, yum-kin

As a foodie, I’m always on the lookout for new food to try, new restaurants to explore. Situated in South Kensington, Bumpkin is a, relaxed, shabby chic like restaurant for a cute lunch/dinner date or just a chilled catch up with the girls and good wine.

For me it was the perfect end to an afternoon date at the V&A museum.

Sitting inside, it was posh but not in a pretentious way, it made you feel comfortable, and calm, surrounded by shabby chic styled furniture and fresh plants on the window sills.

They served British food so I felt compelled to choose a British dish as well. I ended up choosing the fish pie 🙂

The fish pie was delicious; beautifully creamy and a perfectly baked golden cheese topping.

I didn’t try the burger but it looked pretty great. Just check out the cheese oozing out of it!!

If you’re in the area, you should definitely check it out 🙂

Ice-cream on a cloud

Ever wanted an ice cream in a cloud? Well, even if you haven’t thought about it, you can now give this a try in London! Milk Train is the name to look out for next time you’re in Covent garden to try the delicious and instagram worthy ice cream cone 😉
