Try a deliciously deep-fried, lesser-known Japanese cuisine at this new Soho restaurant

You've feasted on sushi, slurped giant bowls of ramen and always have a bottle of teriyaki sauce in the kitchen cupboard. But while the UK has embraced several of Japan's gastronomic offerings, you may be yet to try kushikatsu. Originating in Osaka, the deep-fried skewers can feature meat, fish or vegetables – with "kushi" meaning skewer and "katsu" meaning deep-fried. Now, Dai Chi – the new restaurant from the team behind Dalston favourite Angelina – has brought the lesser-known speciality to Soho.

"Though reminiscent of Angelina's sophisticated design – think monochrome accents and marble-topped tables – Dai Chi's pared-back interior lends itself to more intimate catch-ups," says Stylist Loves' deputy editor Annie Simpson. "And if you're an indecisive diner who likes to try a little of everything, it's the place for you. The restaurant takes the pressure off ordering, serving a great-value six-course set menu that showcases re-imagined takes on classic Japanese flavours. To start, the unexpected combination of creamy burrata, sharp radicchio and salty roe was as complex and delicious as it was beautiful. While the classic chicken karaage was always going to be a winner, the star was the sticky and sweet Kakuni pork skewer, cooked until melt-in-your-mouth tender and topped with a 'frickle' (lightly fried pickle) for a flavour and texture contrast. Although the wine pairing is well worth splurging on, we found the spicy, fresh Tögarashi margarita to be the perfect match for every last deep-fried mouthful." 16A D'Arblay St, London W1; daichi.london

Knitting icon Tom Daley has given into popular demand with a new collection of DIY kits

Though he finally claimed his first gold at the Tokyo Olympics, it was for something slightly more relatable that Tom Daley captured the nation's hearts this summer: his love of knitting. The diver took up the mindful hobby during 2020's lockdowns, but it was images of him clicking needles by the Olympic pool that took the internet by storm – prompting his dedicated knitting Instagram account to amass 1.4 million followers. The likes rolled in for his handmade medal pouch, Team GB cardigan and countless colourful creations, but the big question remained – when would he launch his own knit range?

Appearing on the Table Manners podcast last month, listeners may have picked up on several hints when Daley was questioned on what was next for his knitting empire. And it seems that we've been treated to a shorter wait than expected, with his knitting kit brand, Made With Love By Tom Daley launching at 5pm today. Designed for both novices and advanced knitters, the 15 kits come complete with all the needles, yarn and patterns you'll need to the make your own Daley-esque creations. Featuring chunky scarves (£80), pastel cardigans (from £115), on-trend vests (£90) and playful Christmas jumpers (£95), the collection has arrived in the nick of time for winter. Just remember to blame Daley if everyone on your gift list ends up with a slightly wonky woolly hat this Christmas. From £30, bytomdaley.com
