AN AUTHENTIC taste of Toyko is now available in the heart of Leamington.
Yo Sushi!’s new menu takes favourites from the streets of the Japanese capital and adds a pinch of its own unique style.
The Regent Court restaurant is onto a real winner, and for those who may be inclined to scoff at a British high street chain serving up ‘authentic’ Japanese cuisine – then the proof is, as they say, in the proverbial pudding.
Take Chazuke – a rice dish made with green tea served in Tokyo for centuries. Not only is the big soup-like dish of fresh salmon and seabass in a wonderful unami broth a hearty affair, it is also unbelievable value at £4. Likewise the Seabass Nanbanzuke – a sweet and sour fish dish on a bed of moreish sticky rice. Again great value at £4.45. The new Salmon Teriyaki is also superb.
Meat-wise, another new dish which is sure to prove a favourite is the melt-in-the-mouth Buta No Kakumi – slow-braised pork belly on rice, while the Beef Teriyaki – crispy slices cooked in a sticky garlic and soy glaze – has already achieved such status, and for good reason.
These are just a selection from the hot dishes. Other new arrivals include Clam & Enoki Miso; Okonomiyaki – a cabbage filled pancake topped with smoked tuna flakes; and Teba No Karaage – crispy fried chicken wings.
And still we have not looked toward the ever-revolving belt which also features some appetising new treats – including tuna, scallop, octopus, squid and vegetarian options.
If by chance you can still manage a sweet then the new Matcha Roll is a must. A glorious, not overly sweet, green tea sponge with fresh cream and azuki beans.
Yo Sushi! has got the recipe right – and if you don’t believe me then just ask manager Chris, whose genuine enthusiasm is infectious.
