Yo!Sushi A Taste Of Tokyo menu Review

As mentioned in my previous post I was invited to try the new This Is Tokyo menu in Yo!Sushi Belfast last week. I love sushi. I also love Yo!Sushi as a restaurant so of course I jumped at the opportunity confident that I could avoid aggravating my IBD and causing flair up. 

The menu itself features a mix of modern street food and traditional Japanese cuisine all found in Tokyo and part of an effort for the popular sushi chain to go back to its roots. This is the biggest menu change in Yo!Sushi history and it absolutely pays off whilst still being completely recognisable as Yo!Sushi food. The less westernised menu features items like sweet shrimp sushi (Ama Ebi Sushi) which, unlike their standard and much loved Prawn Nigiri, is raw. This along with the addition of poached octopus (Tako) is not for the faint hearted. However the sight of crispy chicken wings (Teba no Karaage), potato salad (Potato Salada), tuna dumplings (Maguro Katsu) and various Seabass options will keep you happy. What they have added for the adventurous diner they have also catered for the more squeamish. 

Things that I loved was the Clam & Enoki Miso Soup (enoki are the only mushrooms I can stomach), the Seabass (which is raw but is also available cooked as Tempura) made a nice addition to the staple Tuna and Salmon, and the deliciously sticky Pork Belly (Buta No Kakuni) barbecued to perfection. Things that I wish I could have tried was the Cabbage Pancake (Okonomiyaki) it smelled amazing and the Dynamite Roll (salmon yes. sriracha, chilli oil and onion? Lol no) but I just couldn't risk a dietary reaction. My dining buddy and frequent chaperone Sarah (because I can't go anywhere alone these days) said they were divine, her opinion is vital for you sushi sceptics as she was also one. 

One thing as well that I feel I have to note is that Yo!Sushi is not all seafood and it is most definitely not all raw, a common misconception when people hear the word, Sushi. There are huge variety of vegan and vegetarian dishes as well as chicken, pork and beef dishes. Currys, soups, noodles, rice, dumplings, salads, cake... Trust me you will not go hungry in Yo!Sushi! 

Can you tell it's my favourite cuisine?

Thankyou to the Yo!Sushi Belfast Manager, Laura, for the invitation and Thankyou to my friend Claire (a fellow sushi lover) from www.worldofkitsch.com for putting us in touch!

  1. I am pretty jealous - I have loved Yo Sushi anytime I have been. Probably a return visit in order...

DIY Christmas Nails for the lazy featuring Kiss Nails & Leighton Denny

Upcycling isn’t just for furniture. I’ve spent weeks searching for the perfect press on nails with a Christmas vibe but either everywhere was sold out or they just weren’t right. 
So I took matters in to my own hands.
My goal was simple: Cheap, quick, low effort and sparkly Christmassy goodness - this ruled out doing my own extensions or going to a salon!  I took some Kiss Acrylic French nails, reshaped them slightly to give a slightly more almond curve than true round. I then topped with Leighton Denny Twinkle Twinkle and my a stash of Christmas decals that I’ve had for yonks; they came in a Colour Club set many many years ago - can’t we please marvel at how far I’ve come since that post?!
I’m going to point out that using five year old decals is not the best option, they were brittle as f*ck and a bit of a nightmare to apply but my mind was set and after a few attempts I got there.
To add an extra strong finish I cured with two layers of Gelish Top It Off from my kit - I wouldn’t usually…

Foundation Focus - Revlon Colorstay For Normal/Dry Skin

We need to talk about brand consistency. I'm a fussy shopper but I'm also a lazy shopper. What I need from a brand is the ability to, once I’ve found my shade, know that I can go across the products in that brand with the confidence that everything matches the same. Think Benefit Cosmetics brow range - I'm shade 3 and no matter what product I lift I know that I'm going to be shade 3. 
Why can't this be the same with foundations? 

Lets take Revlon for example. Now I still haven't quite forgiven Revlon for discontinuing one of the best foundations I've ever tried. Their Age Defying foundation was one of the creamiest and dewiest foundations I've ever tried. It felt wonderful on my skin and I truly mourn it. 

I colour matched at Shade 10 - Buff for a tanned skin

And so I moved on to their Colorstay range. Colorstay was slightly more fluid and came in two formulas - one for dry and one for oily skin - but it was a bit of a nightmare in it's original bottle …

Matcha Madness: The Body Shop Matcha Tea Face Mask Review

My name is Bex and I am a mask addict! I love masks. Cream, clay, mud, peeling, sheet, cellulose, nourishing... you name it and I love it! I recently spent an evening with the amazing staff from The Body Shop Belfast learning about all their key products and celebrating their cruelty free status and at the end of the night I was very kindly gifted their Japanese Matcha Tea pollution clearing mask - I was delighted! 

We all know that the world has gone Matcha crazy but beyond an occasional frappe from a well known coffee house my main experiences have been with Matcha flavour cakes from my local asian supermarket. They are seriously amazing and the lightest sponge I've ever eaten but it doesn't exactly scream "good for you".

Thankfully, apart from being seriously tasty Matcha is ridiculously good for you. Traditionally brewed as a simple green tea it is packed full of antioxidants - 10 times the amount in normal green teas as you are consuming the precious ground up lea…
