Japanese Lunch Set at The Yuu 一遊, TST Hong Kong

Hello from Hong Kong everyone!

I know it's been a while since I posted anything but my first 2 weeks in Hong Kong were super hectic. I'll be here until the end of May, which means a total 5 weeks of glorious eating. Catch me on Instagram where I'm posting daily of all the delicious foods I'm working through.

The Yuu, which I've blogged about before, is one of my favourite inexpensive Japanese restaurants in Hong Kong and I went back for a lunch date with fellow foodie Yee. The pre-set lunch menus are unbelievably good value for money starting from around $80 (£8.00) up to $130 (£13.00) and include sushi and sashami!

I went for the udon set which also comes with a small side of sashimi on rice, pickles and a drink, all for around £8. The udon was good quality and didn't taste of the badly made packet stuff, and I love the way the tofu soaks up the dashi broth. Kitsune udon (tofu udon) is one of my favourite foods of all time.

The sashimi on rice was a pretty big bowl for a side and the fish was super fresh. Loved the side of pickles too.

Yee's sashimi don looked so enticing and fresh, and came with miso soup, pickles and a drink. This set was around £12.

We also grabbed some yakitori from the a la carte menu and they were all perfectly seasoned and cooked. The wagyu beef cubes were melt in the mouth soft, the chicken wings were satisfyingly salty and crisp, and the pork wrapped in enoki was just sensational.

Yee and I thoroughly enjoyed our lunch and I'm glad it is still as good as I remember. The portions from the lunch sets are more than substantial, and yes I keep saying it but it really is a huge bargain for the quality and freshness of the food. Shame that can't be said for the service; we were being served by pretty miserable looking and soundless waiting staff but when the food is good, it's worth going back to.
