On my second last night in London I wanted to thank my hosts for letting me stay with a sushi dinner. Sushi, oddly enough, is one of my absolute favourite foods but I've never tried to make it. So, of course, this meant an excursion to a restaurant instead. It was suggested that we try a place near Camden Market called 'Hi Sushi Salsa'. I don't quite understand the name of the place since salsa did not seem to appear anywhere on the menu and they played soft clarinet jazz... but in its own way I suppose it's kind of endearing. Whether or not the origin of the restaurant name was certain, the quality of the food was!
They have some seriously creative and talented kitchen staff. Every dish that came to our table was not only delicious but remarkable in appearance. I took the liberty of taking a few pictures so you can get the idea. We ordered a prawn starter, a selection of fresh sashimi, three specialty rolls, and a couple of standard makimono. Scroll down and feast your eyes. If you're in London and you get the chance, you might just want to check it out for yourselves! Here's the web-site, http://www.hisushi.net
