There is a bit of a concept behind Yashin Sushi, that of not adding soy sauce to any of their dishes. If your favourite part of eating sushi is dunking it into a bowl of the salty condiment then this is not for you, sorry. According to Yashin’s founders, the no-soy approach harks back to cuisine of the Edo era, and makes it easier to fully appreciate each of the components that go into the sushi.
Yashin is an upmarket affair, it’s styled like a Manhattan diner and it’s on the expensive side - eight pieces of sushi cost £30, but there is some very skilful work going on in the kitchen.
The best places to eat Japanese food
The inhabitants of Kensington and Chelsea loved Yashin Sushi so much that they demanded another outlet be opened up for them. That’s right, bunching in West London with a location in High Street Kensington and another in South Kensington
recently opened, Yashin Sushi are looking to erect a monopoly on designer Japanese food. Lucky Kensington. Reassuringly expensive and stylish to boot (it’s based on the open kitchen style of sushi), the chefs prefer that you not use soy sauce and allow them to add wasabi where they deem it necessary. Good looking out for our taste buds chefs!
