Ya Wu – Unfaithful mistress

My affair with Ya Wu began one Sunday night in June two years ago. My partner was attending a conference in Stockholm. I thought, why not? She’ll never know.

I ordered a take-away. It cost € 12.95 for six items: starter, first, second, third courses, a dessert, and a complimentary can of Coke. My expectations were not very high.

I took the food home. I was exceptionally surprised by the taste and quality.

My partner’s son, who loves Japanese food, also decided to try Ya Wu. He too was very impressed.

A few months later my partner asked me where she could take two restive teenagers – one of whom is a die-hard UK pickivore – for lunch.

I confessed my affair with Ya Wu. Result? Two happy lads and a relieved partner.

She enjoyed it so much she invited a good friend to lunch the following week. Our friend was so pleased she in turn invited us both to dinner at Ya Wu. And so it goes.

The lunch menú costs just € 9.25 (plus tax) for 5 courses and a drink. Bargain.  

When you sit down the friendly staff will bring you a hot towel and a free appetizer – mini springrolls and dipping sauce.

We visit the place often and we’ve never been disappointed. 

Smart, clean and comfortable. And, if you want to go à la carte there are 100 dishes to choose from. The wine, too, is very reasonably priced.

My partner is going to Madrid next weekend – yahoo!
