As a couple, and now a family, we don't drink or smoke and so eating out has always been our main form of 'entertainment.' We often go for lunch on a Saturday and so I thought that I would share some places we enjoy eating at. Sometimes I will share recipes as well.
I had always avoided Yo Sushi as I don't eat meat or fish and so I thought there was nothing there for me.
However my OH convinced me to try the one in Sheffield and I found that there were lots of dishes I could enjoy.
My favourites are:
- unlimited miso soup
- avocado maki
- cucumber maki
- Inari mini iso
- Inari pocket
- Pumpkin korroke with plum sauce (hot dish - my very favourite)
- Vegetable gyoza
- Mochi for dessert - it is an acquired taste but a real taste of Japan
- Chocolate mochi - this is so delicious
It is a fun dining experience as the colourful dishes whizz around the conveyor belt and you grab what you fancy. On Monday's they do Blue Monday's where all of the dishes are a certain price and so this is a great time to go and try a few out and then decide upon your favs for full price days.
I have eaten at the Finchley Road branch in London, Sheffield and the Harvey Nichols one in Leeds and now Leeds Trinity. My favourite and the best for service is the Harvey Nichols branch. The service throughout can be variable and sometimes in some branches the belt isn't well stocked and that detracts from the experience.
I have seen young kids eating here (mainly picking out the dessert dishes) and I think it is a good way to introduce them to sushi and to Japanese food.
What are your opinions on sushi and Japanese food?
