Yo! Sushi at Mmmondays
Thu 15 Aug 2013 - posted by Jess
"Blue Mondays!"... Were the words that came screeching out of my mouth when I was asked where I would like to go and eat at the beginning of the Mmmondays campaign.
Most Cardiffians should know that Blue Mondays is the name of the special offer that Yo! Sushi have been running intermittently for the past few years.
For those unfamiliar with YO!, customers sit alongside a conveyor belt or booth *the conveyor belt seats are much more fun*, where plates of sushi and other Japanese inspired dishes speed past you...okay it's about the speed of a 100m turtle sprint!
You can place an order using your very own 'Yo!' button too which alerts a member of staff that you would like some help, but selecting from the looping 'sushi-go-round' is normal behaviour.
Dishes are usually priced according to plate colour, although on Blue Mondays all dishes are priced at £2.50 and at the end of the meal the total is totted up according to how many plates of each colour are in your stack.
I opted for a few different dishes including the Chicken Katsu Curry which was very moreish! Topped with Japanese pickle it certainly won't disappoint your taste buds.
The Duck Gyoza dumplings weren't too heavy and the portion size was just right. They were soft in the middle and a little crispy around the edges...Like little fluffy clouds!
Next I had the Crunchy Prawn and Avocado ISO... Which I must admit, I was a little worried how I was going to tackle this with chopsticks but I had no issues at all.
I also chose Beef Nigiri which is really tender, seared beef with a spicy mayonnaise...Not for anyone who wants to look 'lady-like' whilst eating. This dish is also a great starter if you are completely new to the sushi concept.
Towards the end of my visit I was starting to feel a little full...Okay, very full!
I have to say this place is great for a group of friends, date night or just popping for lunch on your own. The staff are so attentive and there is so much choice on the menu there really is something for everyone.
Great night, great food, and great people- I can't wait to go back!
