Sushi for lunch - Itsu, right? Nope. Instead, go to K10, a Japanese restaurant close to Finsbury Square with nice takeaway sushi and a good selection of salads, poke bowls, and rice boxes. It’s a conveyer belt job (so you could technically be done quickly if you sat in), but with better food than the usual grab-and-go sushi places.
