As You Me Sushi continues to spread across London, we decided to review the Marylebone store – where it all began.
On a rainy, cold Saturday afternoon in the depths of February we were delivered a morale boosting 36 piece sushi platter to the Marylebone London HQ. From placing our order to delivery, our food arrived in a brisk 30 minutes – just long enough to really work up an appetite. With a delicious mix of salmon sushi rolls, crab rolls and salmon sashimi the platter more than satisfied the appetites of two strapping young men.
Now the details.
The fish – fresh salmon, in generously meaty chunks had the freshness one hopes for when consuming uncooked, aquatic vertebrates. The salmon sashimi was particularly noteworthy, with a delicate saltiness and a melt-in-the-mouth tenderness. The rice – sticky yet light, and in the perfect ratio in both crab and salmon rolls.
There’s really no bigger crime to sushi than total rice domination, and the balance here was spot on. Accompanied by all the necessary extras, pickled ginger, salty soy sauce and fiery wasabi the platter delivered (pardon the pun) on all fronts.
This really was delicious sushi and the freshness of the produce alongside the care taken in preparation was apparent. Good work! But don’t just take our word for it – try it yourself.
