What a treat; on my last trip to visit the folks, we went to Sakura Sushi twice – yes twice and I was only there for 10 days. Oh happy days.
Sakura Sushi have a special at the moment to celebrate their 10th anniversary. For R100.00 you can eat as much as you like excluding 3 of the plates. The prices work according to the colour of the plate, so it was easy to see what we were not allowed to eat as part of the special. Well, let me tell you, I seriously battled to make up my R100.00 worth of sushi and I am a sushi fanatic. I ate approximately R65.00 worth and was stuffed but fear not, I took my time and gobbled enough sushi to make up my quota.
As you are seated, you are given a nunu little bowl with pickled ginger and wasabi. You have another cute little bowl which you can fill with as much soy sauce as your heart desires and obviously chopsticks which I seemed not to photograph.
Then it is time to dig in! Where to start… There are so many wonderful choices whizzing past on the conveyor belt of happiness. And just when you think you have chosen the right one, another moreish option comes past.
It turned out that the black plates were all of our favourites – they all contained salmon or prawn and avo – wonder if that had something to do with it.
Here you can see why it is so difficult to make a decision – talk about being spoilt for choice.
Would you look at my skill using chopsticks.
The decor of Sakura Sushi is beautifully done with a minimalist feel, which I love.
We were wondering if there are any spelling mistakes in this magnificent wall hanging. I wonder what is says.
Some jasmine tea was a perfect ending to a truly memorable meal.
I was in no way compensated by Sakura Sushi. I merely wanted to share my experience with you, so they were kind enough to allow me to take photos.
