Do you know what I also love? Prosecco, so when I turned up and was greeted by a glass of fizz I knew I was on for a good night. I spotted my gorgeous friend Tori (What's the Stori) and then we were told to tuck in. Well, who am I to argue?
I feel like this is a beginning to be a list of things I love, so apologies in advance. But I LOVEEEE salmon and I LOVEEEE hot sauce. So the Yo Roll: Salmon rice roll with a drizzle of mayo and siracha hot sauce was always going to be a winner. Honestly, it's been a week and I'm still dreaming of this, I could probably eat it every day and never get bored.
As I was busy eyeing up the rest of the conveyor (and playing my usual game of 'what's veggie, chicken or fish and what should I avoid?) I was joined by the beautiful Sarah (Four for the Road) and Kat so I joined them for more Sushi and prosecco.
We really went to town. I especially loved:
Furikake Fries - then sprinkled with yuzu furikake, sesame, aonori and smoky bonito flakes (I've never heard of 3 of those ingredients but I'm a fan!) Basically, they had a bit of a kick to them but they were really good and definitely something I want to recreate in my own kitchen. Partly, because the chefs looked like they were having so much fun throwing bowls of chips around to coat!
Osaka Style Squid
Overall, the whole evening was a real treat. We were plied with prosecco, treated to amazing live music and got to dress up for the photo booth. It made for a really fun, girly night out that I can't wait to repeat.
Plus, we were lucky enough to come away with the coolest goody bag, including a siracha key ring (yes, I have added hot sauce to everything this week)
Thank you Yo! Sushi, Chester for the invite and to the whole team for treating us so well and for an amazing night.
The new Yo! Sushi menu launches tomorrow (25th April) - do go pay and visit, and feel free to invite me!!
