Yo! Sushi Chester: New menu launch

It’s hard to believe that it’s almost been six years since I met my friend Liam at the start of university. Alongside our passion for English Literature, the strong foundation of our friendship is firmly grounded in our love of Yo! Sushi (especially Pumpkin Katsu).

Naturally when the opportunity arose for us to go try the new menu at the Yo! Sushi restaurant in Chester we were beyond excited.

Rule #1 of any successful event: Greet your guests with sparkling wine. Check.

We were warmly greeted at the door with a glass of prosecco and took our place in one of the booths. As we ate we were serenaded with some live music which was the perfect setting to try some delicious food.

Something I love about Yo! Sushi is the ability to try new flavours and foods that you wouldn’t usually have the opportunity to. Is there anything better than having fabulous food paraded round in front of you to grab to eat?

I’ll be really honest, it’s only within the past year or so that I’ve truly developed an appreciation for fish, especially salmon. Salmon and cream cheese bagel is one of my new firm favourite snacks, so I was delighted to find that Smoked Salmon & Cream Cheese had made its way onto the menu.

Any of my friends will be able to tell you that fried chicken is undoubtedly one of the keys to my heart, and the new Chicken Karaage can definitely unlock it! The creamy mayo on the side was a perfect addition to the chicken.

Chicken Katsu has always been one of my favourite Yo! Sushi dishes, so I was so excited to get the opportunity to try the new Beef Katsu. I could add the tonkatsu sauce to everything I eat, I absolutely adore it. Another beef dish that is new to the menu is the Seared Beef, with radish, cucumber and quick-pickled onion, wrapped in seared beef with some schichmi powder. I love the variety that comes with eating in Yo! Sushi, and these different styles of beef dishes are the perfect example.

Furikake Fries: Let’s face it, fries are the perfect side to accompany most meals, so it’s wonderful that Yo! Sushi have adapted the traditional side whilst putting their own Yo! spin on it. Coated in sriracha mayo and then sprinkled with yuzu furikake, sesame, aonori and smoky bonito flakes, these had just the right amount of spice on them! The hottest thing I can hack is a jalapeño pepper, so these were spicy enough for me to enjoy the flavour of too.

Cod Nanbanzuke: Honestly, I was a bit dubious of this dish as I wasn’t too sure if I would like the taste of it. I’m extremely glad I went against my first instinct and tried it, as it was incredible. The sweet and sour flavours complimented each other perfectly, without being sickingly sweet the way usual sweet and sour chicken can be.

Osaka Style Squid: My past experience with squid has just been calamari which I love, so I couldn’t wait to taste this new dish. The spicy pepper squid had a slight kick, again like the Furikake Fries, it was slightly spicy without being too overpowering.

Other wonderful new menu items:

Not actually from the new menu, but I just HAD to give it a mention, is the Malt Chocolate Pot. The following day in work I was still fantasising about it.

Thanks so much to the lovely staff at Yo! Sushi, who were so welcoming and helpful when recommending their favourite of the new dishes. As you can see from the aftermath, we really enjoyed it!

Also a big thank you for this goodie bag, I will be adding the sauces to EVERYTHING!
