When we got an email from Itsu inviting us to try their new Chicken Noodle Soup we weren’t sure if they had got the right email address. Nonetheless it was a hard to resist offer – we were straight into their Baker Street branch the next lunchtime.
The chain originally founded by Julian Metcalfe, one of the Pret a Manger founders, offers a diverse asian range of eat in or takeaway options. We tried the new Chicken Noodle Soup, at only two hundred calories it ticked the boxes for our current health kick. Really rich and meaty (they don’t go skinny on the ingredients) this is a perfect grab and go soup. At only £3.79 for a generous helping it is a bit of a steal.
Also new in the Itsu line are their collection snacks. Favourites included the chocolate covered edamame (not so healthy) and the crispy seaweed thins (far too healthy). We also grabbed some sushi, which we still maintain for high street sushi is about as good as it gets.
Itsu are opening over twenty new locations this year and will no doubt be a fixture of the Asian dining craze in the capital. With shops across the area (on Baker Street, Regent Street and Oxford Street) be sure to pop in and try the new range.
