    Hiya – so what did you think of the abeno restaurant? was it good …I love japanese food – its a great way of living healthily .. Thanks for the blog its always nice to have a general consensis of places to eat…Heres a thought – why not not promote the places by reviewing it on – it’ll be great for the restaurant as it will give the exposure it deserves as well as a chance for you to get a review in – in fact we have a competition that you all may well be interested in whereby ….The prize is priceless : it is to become a food critic for a month, and be in the chance of winning four free meals for two at the best restaurants in your area. To enter, all you need to do is sign up to (it’s a bit like facebook) and review restaurant. If you do this, you are automatically entered into the draw to become a food critic for the month!
