Japan meets Brazil at this vibrant new venue inspired by Rio’s funky ‘temakerias’. Founded by two young entrepreneurs with links to both countries, Yoobi takes its cue from the Latin capital’s hip Leblon neighbourhood and the streetwise eateries peddling all manner of hand-rolled temaki. Customers pick from ‘simple’, ‘special’ and ‘deluxe’ versions packed with special sushi rice and all manner of sustainable ingredients – from the Spanish-influenced tuna tartar or Japanese pear mixed with 20-hour cured salmon to veggie riffs involving avocados, asparagus and sun-blushed tomatoes, all wrapped in crisp nori cones. The menu also runs to salads and soups, while the drinks list cranks up the nutrients with fresh fruit juices and smoothies. Sit and snack amid the white surfaces, warm woods and bold cold colours, or drop by for a takeaway; it’s worth noting that Yoobi does local deliveries too.
