Taste of Tokyo at Yo Sushi! in Leamington

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.
