Sushi Shop Summer Box

I love cooking. In a curious, trial-and-error, obsessive sort of way.

But even I couldn’t bring myself to turn the stovetop and/or oven on in the heatwave we’ve been blessed with those past few days.

Sushi Shop Summer Box review • Cake + Whisky

Delicious, colourful sushi, fresh crisp salads, my weight in fruit daily and liters of water. When the temperatures rise, this is how I roll.

Just what Sushi Shop’s gorgeous, limited-edition Summer Box is all about!

Sushi Shop Summer Box review • Cake + Whisky

Created in collaboration with paper-wizard Parisian brand PaperMint, the Sushi Shop Summer Box promises a modern, brightly coloured & refreshing take on the traditional sushi platter!

Decorated in a vibrant flamingo pattern, the Summer Box includes 36 pieces of sushi (2 of which are exclusive creations), a side dish and a fresh melon, papaya & berry fruit salad, making it the ultimate Summer bento!

The sushi themselves are beautifully crafted and the selection is playful & creative.

My favourites were the Chicken Katsu maki and the classic tuna nagiri. And of course, the new, summer-tastic Spicy salmon & papaya spring roll.

Sweet salmon, fruity papaya, balanced perfectly by the light tingle of the spicy sauce… Just soy good!

Perfect for sharing with a friend for fun in the sun!

Or -more accurately- in the air-conditioned comfort of your local Sushi Shop store, office or home sweet home. Order yours here (available for pick-up or take-away)

O-fish-ally the most delicious way to survive a heatwave!

The Sushi Shop Summer box was gifted to me by the brand and/or their PR agency, however all opinions, pictures, sushi love, bad fish pun & tendency to turn into a puddle of sweat are my own.

Cheesy date at Melt Room

Nothing beats a cheesy date.

By which I don’t mean an amalgam of all the cliches you see in movies.

Nop, no red roses, candlelit restaurants or gondola ride for me. Instead, loads and loads of melted cheese and bread.

Melt Room {Restaurant review} | Cake + Whisky

Melt Room is London’s first grilled cheese sandwich shop.

Melt Room {Restaurant review} | Cake + Whisky

Yes, you read that right. They only serve grilled cheese sandwiches.

And a few other things on the side…

The atmosphere is very in phase with the menu…

In an American diner meets your wildest childhood dream kind of way.

Service is friendly and really quick.

Those guys sure understand that cheese cravings don’t wait.

The cheese fries arrived first.

Crispy, yet soft in the middle, and covered in the most sinful puddle of cheese sauce, they were simply delicious.

And even more so when combined with the homemade relish (that thing is gold, do get some!)

The Mac ‘n’ Cheese is a must-order.

Golden toasted sourdough bread, sandwiching a generous serving of Mac ‘n’ Cheese (with added chorizo because YOLO).

Come on, you know you want to.

Or will it be the Pastrami (with mushrooms, horseradish, red leicestershire and cheddar)?

Melt Room also does a brilliant tomato soup + classic grilled cheese sandwich deal for £5.

That’s your lunch break (and all of your cheese cravings) sorted then.
