A few years ago, my mama's friend (who is coincidentally also my friend) came to London for a visit. "Let's have sushi!" She proclaimed, and I wholeheartedly agreed. She told me of this amazing place she knew all the way over in Kensington, and insisted we go there. Boy, am I glad we did. With fish so fresh and perfectly sliced that the restaurant's motto is "without soy sauce" (so that you can truly appreciate the flavours of the seafood) and service so impeccably spot on, Yashin stole my heart from the moment we sat down.
Jarv and I have been back twice, most recently just this Saturday. After a great gym session in the morning, whilst we sipped on espresso macchiatos in the sunshine, he said the magic words. "Should we go to Yashin for lunch, then?" We called up, made a reservation for an hour later, walked back to the hotel to change and off we went.
We both chose one of the Yashin Lunch options, which includes miso soup and a salad.
