Don’t go to Yo Sushi for two years and then I go twice in a week! After we enjoyed our meal last week, we decided to go again.
The first dish we grabbed from the conveyor belt this time was Crispy Salmon Skin ISO, classic Japanese made with crispy fried salmon skin. This was a mix of three textures, the crispy skin, the soft rice and the chewy seaweed. Very nice even if it was a challenge to eat.
I ordered the Salmon & Tuna sashimi, three slices of premium Yellowfin tuna and three slices of premium Scottish salmon. I had anticipated that both my wife and I would eat this dish, but in the end I ate it all, as she didn’t feel like eating raw fish that evening.
We then went for some hot dishes. Once more we ordered the Soft Shell Crab Tempura, which was described as soft, tasty and tender soft shell blue crab fried in a crispy and light batter with tempura sauce. I do like crab but this dish is mainly about texture, there wasn’t a strong crab flavour, but is quite nice. We also ordered the Chicken Teriyaki, grilled chicken in a sweet, sticky soy based sauce was very good, delicious and the sauce was just right.
Still feeling peckish we then ordered a couple more dishes, the hot pepper squid we had the week before and also tried the Chicken Katsu Curry, chicken katsu with rice, a mild curry sauce and Japanese pickle. This reminded me of a dish I had in bento box in Auckland in New Zealand.
The best way I can describe it is as a breaded chicken burger, fried, sliced, placed on rice and then covered in curry gravy! It wasn’t a horrible dish, but certainly wasn’t one I would order again or would recommend.
Overall we did enjoy the meal, the service was good and it’s an interesting environment in which to eat as well as interesting food.
