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...

Faeriwood Eats: Wolf & Devour, gluten free dining done right

I get asked a lot about how people can go about promoting their businesses and whilst it is a huge question one of the things I will always recommend is social media and Instagram. I love it. I've discovered so many good restaurants while browsing hashtags and local accounts. Recently I was scrolling through #Glutenfreebelfast and spotted five glorious words. 
Gluten. Free. Mac'n'Cheese. Balls. 
Cue heavy breathing. 
It wasn't until we were sitting down in the small but gorgeously laid out premises - think modern cantina with industrial and urban garden accents - that I realised I've actually seen the Wolf & Devour food truck around festivals and fairs but I had always assumed, being full of all things bready, that they were just a no go for little old Coeliac me. Knowing that they had at least this one gf item on the menu gave me the confidence to go and visit their Ballyhackamore restaurant as soon as I physically could.
Still, when we sat down to order, I involu…

Alita: Battle Angel

For all the hype about it's animated lead character, and the clashing of titans that is Robert Rodriguez and James Cameron, Alita: Battle Angel is the teen fantasy movie (potential) franchise you didn't know you were getting and I'm not sure you wanted. 
Alita starts with Christoph Waltz finding her discarded shell in the trash dump of a mysterious floating city that lords over the world on the ground. He then take her back and, with the help of his *mayaswellbemute* assistant, rebuilds her with a teen shaped mech body he just happens to have lying around and gives her the name of his dead daughter. None of this is supposed to be creepy at all. When Alita, Rosa Salazar, starts to realise that she is not just your typical abandoned teendroid but actually a super slick alien android with secret ninja fighting skills she does what any girl would do... she throws herself at, literally, the first boy she meets and takes up roller derby. Oh but she's also a sassy vigilante …

My December in film

Ohh it's been a while since I've done a monthly recap hasn't it? Have you missed them? I ended up with a crazy amount of time off work during December, having stockpiled my holidays throughout the year, and so that left me with a lot of time to throw myself in to a few TV shows and new films. I'll not bore you with the various 90's Cult shows I re watched for the thousandth time and instead talk about some some very meme-worthy new offerings!

Birdbox


Ok, I’m getting this out of the way because it seems like the whole world watched Birdbox over Christmas. Well... 6 million out of 6+ billion. Netflix’s best opening week for one of their original movies and it’s been causing so much buzz and meme material - even as we enter our second week of January it's still going strong - that it’s difficult to find people saying whether it’s actually any good or not. And I’ll be honest I’m still a bit confused about that myself. I enjoyed it, the acting is decent, and I appre…
