Monday night, I had drinks with some clients, and we were talking about good lunch places. The ones hat kept coming up were Meat Liquor (which I still haven’t been to!) and Yoshino. I had never heard of Yoshino, and they told me that you can either eat in, there’s a huge amount of food that you can take out for lunch – at very cheap prices.
I headed over to Yoshino, which is just north of Piccadilly, and walked in to a huge selection of sushi, sashimi and edamame. Not bad.
I came out with three selections, the tempura calamari maki (really good, it was actually all the little legs that they had tempura’ed and gave the maki roll a good consistency), the salmon avocado roll (good, except for the leaf of lettuce that they added inside, which was a bit wilted), and three pieces of nigiri sushi (tuna, salmon, and squid). All very fresh. And £5.60 for the ensemble. Wow. I will definitely be back… at least once a week!
