Phew, it sure has been a busy week for me, quite energetic and productive and I am feeling suitably tired and so ready for the weekend. The office bug was surely going around and did some “damage”: me and my colleagues kept taking turns in sneezing and coughing, and everyone was feeling rather tired. I had a super-persistent headache on Thursday that even my 1000 tablets stash of ibuprofen from Walgreens could not cure, and, to top it all, Friday morning’s long wait for the elusive bus left me soaked in the fine London drizzle and chilled to the bone; and it is supposed to be spring! By lunchtime on Friday I was starting to feel so tired and weary, I needed something warm and and tasty to cheer me up. As I ventured out of the office at lunchtime, I knew just the place which could do that, to warm my body and my soul: the Japanese ramen noodles restaurant called Shoryu.
