Looking for sushi with a bit of a twist? We reckon Yoobi‘s got your back. This Soho joint specialises in Temaki, or hand rolls, with flavour combos to keep you on your toes, and prices that won’t break the bank.
No one is going to look elegant trying to eat Temaki. The cone-shaped package of nori, sushi rice and all manner of tasty fillings is just not made to fit inside any normal person’s mouth in one go. Sure, this may not be first date material, but when it tastes that good, do we care?
As well as the usual maki (small rolled sushi), and nigiri (the fish on top ones), Temaki are Yoobi’s real winning dish. They’ve got all the classic combos like salmon avocado, but also have a number of fusion options, and plenty on offer for the veggies. The asparagus and avocado Temaki with baby spinach and a white miso sauce was particularly fresh and vibrant; the smoky chipotle tuna maki as well as the citrus salmon tamaki, with orange, avocado, croutons and chives also stood out.
At under £15 a head, this is a great little lunch option for when that sushi craving strikes.
