wheres best to get it.. whats your favourite type? are the supermarket packets for lunch any good?
I had one of their packs for lunch today and it was very nice indeed. £4, bit much for lunch but that's because I was greedy and got the biggest. It had lots of different fish - salmon, tuna, mackerel, king prawn, small prawn.
28.8g in the 268g pack I had for lunch. (Actually, is that a lot? I don't count these things.)
in general, it's one of those things you get what you pay for. if you want to spend £3 on sainsbury's sushi, then it's not going to be as nice as going to a sushi restaurant and spending £25 or so on loads of sashimi and rolls. i'm a big sushi fan but i'll still have the supermarket stuff from time to time. stuff you can get in waitrose is the nicest i've found and costs the most (surprise surprise)
yo! sushi is okay, nothing special but not too bad in terms of the sushi, and they do lots of not-actually-sushi if you're with someone who doesn't fancy it
best sushi (note: best does not mean best but most satisfying), and this is a bit wanker alert, best sushi was at an all-you-can-eat place on Robson St in Vancouver where you could get loads for just over a fiver at lunchtime and the california rolls were to die for.
I asked a chap in-the-know in work and he reckons it is atrocious, but he has been to japan and is a massive sushi snob. So is it actually OK for normal people? I'd only go if there was an offer on, they do %40 off at times.
it's OK, but no better. it's cheaper than higher quality sushi restaurants, but the fish is still okay. if you've not had sushi before, it's a good place to start
are there any dishes you didnt like or could be considered to be of questionable taste?
theres a small cafe that make it fresh everyday and its japanese owned. £5 for take away full meal size, wasabi etc inc. Its just off the road parallel to park row across from a starbucks
smoked mackerel and salmon? not really sushi is it, and you never get enough wasabi
It tastes good and is a nice change from a sandwich.
all supermarket sushi is fucking rank except for Waitrose's, which is more than pleasant.
Best places I've been in London are SW9 at the Oval end of Brixton Road, and a place whose name I can't remember on Upper Street.
where is the best of that at?
they dont seem to get very exciting
I've been reduced to just putting wasabi paste and ginger into my mouth and wash it down by squirting the soy sauce from the little plastic fish into my mouth
the shop is WELL good.
Really nice sushi and bento boxes and katsu curry <3
also love katsu curry
but they all had stickers on saying 'NO RAW FISH'. I quite like raw fish.
Now I want sushi.
Lambton Quay, Wellington. Cheers. Half price after 4, get there quick otherwise you'll miss out!!!!
Actually don't think I know Sushi B, but Midland shits all over any other St Pierre's rubbish.
but i HATE wasabi (the paste). I find it completely intolerable. It means Itsu is always off cos they hide bits of it in between the fish and the rice on a Nigiri or whatever. BASTARDS!
little tokyo's sushi is wonderful
or even vegetarian sushi :(
