Square Meal Review of Yashin Sushi ?

‘Without soy sauce, but if you want to’, proclaims a neon sign behind the green-tiled counter – just one novel aspect of this superior Japanese eatery set up by two Nobu protégés, which serves some of the best sushi in town. Although there are tables downstairs, most aficionados perch at the bar and watch as the chefs apply their razor-sharp skills to pieces of ultra-fresh yellowtail, salmon, tuna, razor clams etc. Come here for fiercely modern sushi, sashimi and hot dishes defined by clean accents and flashy technique – witness scallops seared with a blowtorch on a lump of polished wood from a fossilised tree trunk. Elsewhere, pure-bred Ibérico pork is served with green chilli, savoury barbecued eel is enhanced with the sweetness of mango and pineapple, and lamb is marinated in saikyo miso. It’s far from cheap and service can be erratic, but most people soon ‘sink into the flow’.

    Drifting Epicure :: Yashin Sushi

    Here is yet another review of a Japanese restaurant. This time it goes all the way to High Street Kensington area where Yashin Sushi, a small sushi restaurant, is hiding in one of the side streets. As you would expect from the area the restaurant is maturely decorated in a simplistic way with a few extravagant details. The space is quite small with the main sitting area surrounding the chef counter. There is a small room downstairs with a bar for bigger parties where you will also find the wine/sake storage tucked away in a small space next to the bathrooms. We sat at the far end of the counter in front of the prep section (I think). The menu is quite straight forward with a selection of mixed dishes to complement the sushi offering. I went for Omakase Eleven which was a selection of eleven pieces of nigiri and a maki roll of the day. Together we shared the Wagyu Beef Sirloin and Yaki Yose Tofu...
