Birthday Week – Yo Sushi

Like I said in my post yesterday, this is the week leading up to my birthday and to share a little of myself with you I’m blogging about a few of my favourite things.

Today is Yo Sushi!

Yo Sushi is a Japanese sushi restaurant. That compromises two of my favourite things. Japan and Sushi!

Japan:

Since I hit my teenage years I have loved Japan and their culture. I starting watching a lot of anime (while that varied between Chinese and Japanese) and tried to teach myself how to speak the language to minimal avail. Genki desu ka?

I looked into going out there for a Gap year to teach English as a Foreign Language, but I chose to do a Certificate in English Language Teaching to Adults (CELTA) course in the UK instead. That means  I can go to any country to teach English if I wanted.

I even spent a load of time reading books to teach me about Japanese culture, my favourite is Hokkaido Highway Blues and there was a BBC series, with Jonathan Ross, that looked in-depth into Japanese culture called Japanorama.

 

Yo Sushi:

Yo Sushi is an amazing restaurant that has one of those, ever entertaining, magnetic conveyer belt thingys.

If you go on a Monday you can get a lot more for your money, as they have Blue Monday’s, meaning some of their dishes have been lowered in price to be the same as their blue plates, (they have a colour system; each colour plate has a different price tag).

However if you don’t go on a Monday it is helpful to know how to get the most for your money.

This is what I would recommend:

Miso Soup (Unlimited refills)  Edamame

 Crispy Salmon Skin Hand Roll  Spicy Chicken Salad

 Spicy Pepper Squid                       japple Japple

Totalling: £15.40

Just remember they charge for the water at the tables, it’s about £1.40, but it’s not tap water, and if it is, it’s been well filtered.

What are your favourite Yo dishes, or recommendations for Japanese restaurants/books?
