Since Mr Miyagi’s opened back in July, the buzz just hasn’t seemed to die down. The venue promises “authentic Asian street food, an extensive drinks menu and an interior that’s an Instagrammer’s dream”. And it certainly delivers.
The incredible décor combined with the vibe, will make you feel like you’ve walked straight into Bangkok. In fact, there is even a Thai tuk-tuk parked outside the bathrooms. Don’t hesitate to hop in for an impromptu photoshoot.
For starters, try the dynamite shrimps in spicy tangy mayo, or the chicken lemongrass skewers. The shrimps are crispy with just enough spice, while the chicken skewers are straight from a stall in Thailand – a thin layer of minced chicken over a bulky skewer. It’s the type of snack you buy from the hawkers in Bangkok to punctuate a strenuous shopping spree.
Be sure to try the pho spicy beef, which is a Vietnamese noodle soup consisting of broth, rice noodles called bánh pho, and a few herbs. The chunks of beef are soft, tender and extremely filling. Plus the soup’s flavours will transport you straight to the streets of Saigon.
After dinner head over to the venue’s adjoining bar, Cobra Kai. The bar is practically a replica of Bangkok’s famous party street, Khao San Road, but (fortunately) much classier. We love it here.
