Itadaki Zen is a vegetarian Japanese restaurant between King's Cross and Angel. It is apparently the first of its kind in Europe. Outside of sushi and the recent rise of mostly pork-based ramen restaurants, the rich tradition of Japanese cuisine is hardly captured in this country. So it is nice to see this restaurant covering something different.

The choice of chic Asian d├ęcor is very...more
