After a fun sunday wandering the south bank I found myself migrating back to college to work on the last round of undergraduate Lab marking. Hungry I lurked around South Ken’s various cafe’s looking for some inspiration.
About a month ago (I am told by the helpful waitress) Tombo, a Japanese deli & cafe opened. What a find! Brilliantly cheap (for London ) well made Japanese food to take out or eat in. Sweet, airy decor and a chilled vibe in the cafe and very tasty food. The Chicken Teriyaki Don box hit the spot for a not too painful £6. My bigest surprise was that they serve flowering tea for £2.40. Well, hardly the cheapest but in comparison to a starbucks coffee (and you get about 4 cups out of one “flower”, topping up with hot water ) I am sold.
check it out, open till 7:30pm, 29 Thurloe Place (next to the ‘snog’ yoghurt shop).
And in their own words: Tombo website
