Japanese Cuisine At Etsu, Liverpool

I am lucky enough to have an interesting friend who happened to live in Japan for a while. 
Her name is Lauren and she writes a travel blog. 
You will most likely find her HERE.
As part of my 20th birthday celebration’s, I wanted to try a Japanese restaurant in Liverpool that Lauren had recommended to me.
Etsu which is situated just off The Strand boasts sparkling reviews on Trip Advisor and really is a truly authentic taste of Japan.
To begin, Lauren recommended Calpis, a Japanese soft drink.
It tastes like a coconut/lemonade hybrid although it contains neither ingredient but was delicious nevertheless.

Next, it was time for starters, we opted to share two appetisers, the first:
Yaki Tori which is three chicken skewers with teriyaki dipping sauce served with seven spice pepper.
We also ordered Kara -Age, golden crispy chicken pieces marinated in soy, ginger and garlic.
I absolutely love Katsu curry at Wagamamma’s, that curry sauce that tastes just like the stuff you get from the chippyโ€ฆ
It would have been crazy not to opt for the ToriKatsu Curry so we both got a plate each.
I must warn you, the portion sized are humongous!
 After finishing our lovely meal we were both full to bursting.
Green tea was in order!
I really recommend Etsu if you are feeling Japanese food, they also do a wide range of sushi and the Udon noodles look very tempting.
Make sure you book on weekends though as you might not be able to get through the door.
