Review - Nen Sin

I am getting major eating out guilt. A condition of my taking on a shiny corporate job is that I would not change my lifestyle to suit. However, it hasn’t quite worked out that way. Oh god, I just realised what this is turning into: whining about privilege. I really don’t want to do that – I'm not that guy. Anyway, the gist of this is that the guilt did not stop me going for teppinyaki on Sunday.

Teppinyaki is an interesting concept. Sort of like theatre food. However, I think if the food will be at the expense of the theatre, the performance has to be excellent. Sadly, this was not. Our chef’s performance just solidified that for me, teppanyaki conjures up images of dark, flamy rooms in Japan in the early hours. Camden before twilight doesn’t quite cut it. And eggs isntaed of.. whatever they would use instead… doesn’t quite work either. The food was unremarkable and average. While the fish was tasty enough, it was a piece of grilled fish that I could’ve done at home. For a third of the price. A sixth of the price if we’d been paying fully. Look at me doing maths!
