No longer reserved for the most adventurous of gourmands, factory packs of, mostly inferior, sushi line today’s UK supermarket shelves. With the first Japanese restaurant appearing in London in the mid-seventies, and the first conveyor belt style gaff arriving 20 years later, it’s been a slow burn.
In Manchester’s enviably pancultural dining scene there are many places where you can indulge in sushi and sashimi, from the aforementioned supermarket meal-deal to level-up chain cafes, to bijou joints in Chinatown. We even have one world-class award-winning star in a railway arch.
This small selection includes the traditional and the experimental. Plates of spanking fresh sashimi, simple but precise nigiri, tuna, seafood and steak, there’s even a sushi taco. Itadakimasu!
