Review: Beyond Sushi

Beyond Sushi Review | Add A LittleI’m aware that a 100% plant based sushi restaurant may sounds quite strange and in your mind you are probably just thinking of cucumber and avocado rolls. But hold up because Beyond Sushi is super creative with their rolls, making every bite full of flavour.

My absolute favourite rolls their is the Mighty Mushroom roll, filled with enoki, shiitake, tofu and surrounded by wild rice and alfalfa sprouts. But the main attraction is the sauces that they pair with the rolls. Yes they come with your average smaverage soy sauce but they also come with a super creative dip. For the mushroom roll, I got the truffle and shiitake sauce which blew my socks off. Seriously good stuff.
I’ve also tried the Pickle Me roll which I thought was ok. the mushroom roll really takes the crown for me as its got such well rounded flavour, whereas I thought the roll with the pickles was just a bit sharp and salty overall.

Beyond Sushi also have a plethora of sides that are equally wonderful, such as the dumplings and soups. However, to create a full meal with my sushi (they have great lunch time deals!) I opted for a cold noodle salad. I went for the green tea noodles with cilantro, parsley, seaweed salad (a huge favourite) and crunchy almonds, all drizzled with a ponzu sauce (in my opinion it was much too sweet to be ponzu and was more like a hoisin sauce) and it was delicious! You can never really go wrong with noodles 😉
