A beautiful Japanese spread at Issho-Ni.

The dimmed lights and candle lit dinner sparked a great atmosphere for intimate conversations amongst loved ones. What a beautiful experience I had with my sisters at Issho-Ni. We were pleasantly greeted by the director and founder of Issho-Ni, Claire Su, She looked after us well, making us feel extremely comfortable and at home. 




A perfectly named restaurant, Issho-Ni meaning, together.  We were amongst people having a good time, laughing and enjoying each others company and being just that, together  in a beautifully chic and cosy designed restaurant.


Me and my sisters were definitely spoilt for choice as we browsed through the menu that offered various kinds of Japanese foods. I ordered the Homemade Kimchi, Spicy Lamb Chops, Udon Noodle Soup, Prawn Tempura and the Spider Maki Rolls. I absolutely love sushi, its one of my favourite foods. These maki rolls, were by far the best sushi I have had in a long time. The food was packed with flavour and every bite felt as tasty as the last.

The head chef, Eduardo Aguiar's passion for Japanese cuisine shone through every plate that was served to us. What an amazingly skill full chef he is and I am so happy to have tasted the beautifully presented meals created.

I had such a memorable experience at Issho-Ni, a friendly place that I will be visiting again very soon.

Peggy Porschen

I have wanted to visit this cafe for so long. When I found out I was going to be in the area I knew I had to pop in and see what the hype was all about for myself. I visited the cafe with family and as I got closer to Peggy Porschen there were people outside taking photos of themselves in front of the it, which I found quite funny because it is a cafe after all. Yet, I joined them and I had to get a photo of me and my family in front of the cafe because if anything, it's capturing the memory, right?

We finally stepped in and without having a table booked we still managed to get a seat which I was not complaining about, as the place was very busy. The whole cafe was so beautifully decorated with penguins, ball balls and fake snow. It looked amazing and with Mariah Carey playing in the background it definitely gave us the Christmas feeling. I loved the soft tones of pink, greens and whites used in the decor, it gives the cafe a pretty pastel girlie vibe.

I browsed the menu and had a look at the cakes, I opted for 'The vanilla cloud,' we also had the 'Dark chocolate truffle' and 'Lemon, raspberry and rose' all three layered slices of cakes. Both 'The vanilla cloud' and the 'Lemon, raspberry and rose' tasted so good, the sponge was so moist and fluffy. The icing was so soft and creamy, (My mouth is salivating thinking about it as I type). I can also see why the 'Lemon, raspberry and rose' cake slice won the award for Great Taste Winner earlier this year, that hint of rose wasn't over powering at all, it was the perfect amount and the soft frosting just melted away in my mouth. However, I did feel the dark chocolate truffle cake was a little too rich for me and the sponge was quite dense. Over all, very happy with my tasty cakes.

We experienced good service from the waiting staff, they were polite, friendly and professional. I can see why a lot of people want to visit Peggy Porschen. Well worth the hype and I am so happy I finally got the chance to taste their cakes and visit the very thoughtfully decorated cafe.
