Sweet nothings: Seafood Tom-Yum

In our hunt for bargain lunches, £5 buys you a hot bowl of loveliness

Published on June 28th 2012.

Sweet nothings: Seafood Tom-Yum

£5 Soup Noodles

Sapporo Teppanyaki, 134 Duke Street  East Village, Liverpool L1 5AG
0151 705 3005

Monday to Friday, 12.00-2pm

But I’ve got a pot of Innocent Thai curry going in the office microwave
And it cost you about £4.50 from Sainsbury’s, didn’t it? Trust me, this is well worth getting your coat on for: the chilled, Zen-like vibe of Sapporo Teppanyaki in the daytime is serenity itself.

Plus you won’t have to listen to Tristram from IT going on about his new synth and how he's got a gig in The Shipping Forecast.

Tom Yum
It certainly is.  Choose from chilli beef noodles; salmon fillet grilled with a mirin glaze in miso soup; teriyaki pork loin; seasonal greens and more.

Calm, caaaalmCalm, caaaalmTOM YUM?
Oh I see.  Yes, that’s on the menu too. A very Thai experience to mess with your head. Here it is in the picture. On this occasion the seafood version although you can also have duck or chicken.

What be lurking in there?
Queen scallops, prawns, seabass and salmon all leaping around in deep, swirling sea of fresh chillies, lemongrass, galangal, lime leaves, coriander and noodles. The broth is a big volcanic brew of hot, spicy, and spanking fresh ingredients. The shoal of seafood and fish holds its texture, and then there’s those noodles…

Yes, nearly finished.

No, I meant the variety of noodle.
You can have udon or ramen noodles or even rice - if you must. Just remember to slurp them up like the Japanese salaryman who is to be found consuming this sort of stuff for breakfast, dinner and tea at noodle bars at every station on the Tokyo underground before passing out on the train.

Super bowl.

This place looks like a nightmare to me. I don't want jugglers, indoor fireworks, or wise-crackers while I'm trying to eat. It's like eating at Bonkers. Do they give that nonsense a rest during the day?

Absinthe & TurksJune 28th 2012.

Yes. Don't they juggle with the chips they are serving in here?

Darrell Doo-MeeJune 28th 2012.

Exactly. Tried it once, paid through the nose, and all that nobbing about throwing food and knives in the air wore thin after about 20 mins......if you want antics....maybe. If you're looking for a decent meal, go elsewhere

20 minutes! I would want to tazer them after about 20 seconds!

I think the line "the chilled, Zen-like vibe of Sapporo Teppanyaki in the daytime is serenity itself" kind of implies that it is different in the daytime

I work in the community college and was in there last week. No hen parties lol, but a decent noodle soup for a fiver. You can get this in the Tokyu probably, but you might not feel very good about yourself afterwards

Can't say I've ever been in the place. Having to chum up with a bunch of strangers, having your food tossed in the air and being told by a diner that chips were being served rather put me off.

And £5 for a bowl of soup at dinnertime! This is austerity Britain you know, not the booming early noughties.

80% of Government cuts are still to come...

Darrell Doo-MeeJune 29th 2012.

What a miserable bunch you all are. Stay at home alone, eating your pie and chips, from a tv tray.

Careless HandsJune 29th 2012.

Sorry Mr. Lally, I didn't ask to be made redundant and made to subsist on the so-called 'Job-Seeker's Allowance' of £71 per week.

Even when I was working eating out was a rare treat.

Sorry Careless that you've been sacked but it really is a bit churlish to come on here dissing something that you admit you have no knowledge of. Why don't you pop along with some of your redundancy payout?

Careless HandsJune 29th 2012.

Just wait until you are privatised and you'll see how little redundancy money really is when your time comes. And how Job Centre Plus will hound you. It's not like the old days you know, o fellow Des O'Connor fan.

I'd rather spend £9.95 on the cracking tapas at Lunya than £5 for a bowl of soup.
