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...

The Ordinary by The Abnormal Beauty Company (or how I dipped my toe in to Deciem)

  The Ordinary by the Abnormal Beauty Company ; If you haven't heard about this cult brand yet then you might not know they are hot shit right now and with their parent company, Deciem , being bought up by Estée Lauder they're only going to get bigger.   The internet has been a buzz for months now with beauty gurus far and wide raving about these high end products for low end prices. I couldn't believe it myself when I saw that there wasn't a product in the range that cost more than 8.00 quid!  So I joined the cult. I have to say that I was really impressed by the counter staff in House Of Fraser Belfast , they were friendly, knowledgeable and able to point me in the direction of the products I needed with just a short chat about my skin. I bought the Hyaluronic Acid 2% and the Niacinimide 10% Serums. If you have no idea what these mean then basically the Hyaluronic is for hydration and, whilst The Ordinary say that Niacinimide combats blemishes, I would actua

Am I Disabled?

This article has been going through my head quite a lot recently and I’m feeling a little self indulgent so bear with me. As a kid I was on the special needs list throughout school and given a classroom assistant to help with my tracheostomy care. I was considered disabled enough to warrant disability benefits right up until I turned 18 when they decided that I wasn’t mentally incapacitated enough and too independent. A panel of bureaucrats sat across the table and said “we can see you are but there’s nothing we can do.” I didn’t tick the right boxes. I’ve worked since I was old enough and supported myself as much as I could and excluding a few short absences from work I have been successful in that. Until now. Now I can’t support myself. I struggle with self care. I’ve had to give up my home and I’ve lost my independence. I’m back to getting surgery’s every 6-8 weeks. They were usually just day cases but the last few have been fairly severe with extended stays (I get to have ano

Faeriwood Eats: Six By Nico Belfast Review

Nico, surveying his diners Six By Nico . A new concept restaurant for Belfast, and a welcome addition to the cathedral quarter, brought to us from Edinburgh and Glasgow.  6 courses rotating every 6 weeks for only 28.00 and you’re going to want to keep up with them because once they’re gone, they’re gone. With themes such as Vietnamese street food and Parisien cuisine, even a Disney theme being featured in their past menus I am looking forward to seeing what Nico and his team will come up with for Belfast. From talking to them though I found out that their first 3 menus will be inspired by Northern Ireland itself and with some of the best produce in the world and one of the most interesting cultures and histories that will be something to see!  First up is their debut menu, inspired by the humble chip shop, The Chippie menu takes the old standards and modernises them to levels you may be more used to seeing in Michelin level restaurants but with a very un-Michelin price poi
