Sushi is a favourite of the Gourmands, even Baby Gourmand likes to get in on the action so when we were invited to try some of the new Tokyo menu items we jumped at the chance (literally). To be perfectly honest you don’t have to love raw fish to enjoy Yo! Sushi which may surprise some people, there is so much more on offer and hopefully this post will make fish-o-phobes realise that there’s more to Yo! Sushi than sushi.
The Leamington Spa branch is situated in Regents Court which is the perfect place to grab lunch or dinner and is one of my favourite places to eat as there is so much on offer. The Leamington branch of Yo! Sushi isn’t huge so booking is probably a good idea if you have plans to visit.
The Hoisin duck rolls (£4.45) are filled to brim with duck and cucumber with a delicious spring onion, hoisin and orange sauce for dipping it’s new to the menu and both of my children would love these. (117 calories)
I must admit that I love some of the names on the new menu like the fish no chip roll (£4.45) which is basically Japanese seabass tempura, onion, cucumber and wasabi sauce filled rice, this was a particular favourite of mine because it’s incredibly simple but so tasty. (139 calories)
Now the first two dishes were good but it wasn’t until I tasted the Kimchi Ika (£4.00) that the new menu really stood out for me. I’ve tried to make Kimchi at home as it’s basically the same process as making sauerkraut but my version is pretty rubbish compared to this. (71 calories)
Some of our other favourites included the Potato Salad (£2.00) which may seem like a bit of an odd dish but it does really need to be tasted to be appreciated (210 calories), the Dynamite Rolls (£4.00) which are super hot but super delicious (168 calories), the Teriyaki salmon (£4.45 which is simple, sweet and tasty (222 calories) and the Chicken Chahan (£4.00) which is an incredibly tasty fried rice (411 calories)
The new menu is a great accompaniment to the range of dishes already produced by Yo! Sushi, the flavours are fresh and flavourful and there is something for everyone whether you’re a sushi lover or not.
Have you tried any of the new dishes yet? Which ones appeal to you?
