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...

Benito Brow Bar Belfast opens in Topshop Victoria Square

There's a new brow bar in Belfast and they are set to take the town by storm. Located on the ground floor of Topshop Victoria Square, in the accessories and make-up section, Benito Brow Bar promises to offer quick, professional service to Belfast's fashionistas. You may think it's a bit strange to have a brow bar in a clothes shop but Topshop's London branches have hosted nail and hair bars such as WAH Nails and BLEACH London. These brands have gone on to become huge successes across the UK's high streets with books and their own product lines on sale. Beauty and Fashion go hand in hand according to Topshop and brows are just the latest trend they are setting.  I was lucky enough to spend an evening with the girls at Benito Belfast and along with a few other bloggers, received a demo of the Benito process and a cheeky cupcake. We were then all treated to a consultation and our own treatments. I went for just a simple threading as I'm already dark and I'm not …

Faeriwood Kitchen: on tour at Hillmount Barbecue Academy

There's nothing quite like a glimpse of bright sunlight peeking through the clouds to send us scurrying to the supermarket for a barbecue meat pack and some burger buns but at Hillmount they have news for you, you can barbecue all year round, in any weather, and still have the most amazing meals, quickly! 
This week I had the chance to attend Hillmount Barbecue Academy, on the outskirts of Belfast, and their three hour BBQ Lesson. In that short time we chilled out, learnt a few recipes and cooked a three course meal! Gone are the days of waiting hours for your coals to heat up and cook your sausages to a crispy black char. Step away from that disposable barbecue and treat your grill like your oven and you'll be having flame grilled delights every week just like our Austrailian and American buddies. 
Here are just a few of the things I learnt during our lesson





Temperature is key
Every dog has it's day and every meat has it's optimum temperature. For chicken you want to get …
