There is definitely a demand for good sushi in Cambridge so when Japas opened its doors back in September 2010, it was a welcome sight. Located on Saxon Street, it’s slightly further afield from the hustle and bustle of the town centre but still walkable. Japas was once the Cross Keys pub and when it first started trading, it was known as Japas Bento Box.
I’ve been going to Japas for my sushi fix on a regular basis. I find that the fish is always fresh and the servings are substantial. Food comes out fast, but not rushed, and I always leave with a happy and full belly.
I love avocados! Their rich and buttery texture is irresistible. So when I spotted the fresh vibrant ones at Gog Magog Hills Farm Shop, I knew I just had to take them home. So what does one make with 3 beautifully plump avocados? Guacamole, of course!
I waited a few days for the avocados to ripen. On the fifth day, I knew they were ready for my husband Paulo (aka Pabs) to get his hands on them and make his great guacamole recipe. Pabs is an old nickname of Paulo’s, from his college days (props to his buddy Ali!). I can only assume it evolved from Pablo, the Spanish version of his name. It seemed appropriate to revive this old name for this Mexican dip!
