YO!Sushi - A Special Treat for my 25th!
- Stand your chance to win 3 eXclusive invites to dine at YO!sushi this 22nd July**
As i was saying, when it comes to Sushi - i definately am one of those kind of people that is pretty strict on what i eat, its quality and taste! Therefore i don't mind paying a little bit extra for great fresh food and comfort. Being in Malaysia, we do have a variety of gourmet food available and quite a range of restaurants to cater to everyone's taste from local, Chinese to western and even Arabian food.
But when it comes to Japanese food, there's very few that really cater to your needs. There's Sushi Kingy, Genko Sush (sorry la my spellig very bad), and the new ones like some Zanmai place in the Gardens and Ichiban sumthin'... well (OMG! I really am bad with names huh), well i haven't personally tried Zanmai but i tried the others...and i tell ya... it's really worth it to try YO!sushi. Take it as a new culture for Japanese food in this 21st century... new way of presentation but still keeping the same great authentic Japanese taste to it like how u want it to be!
Salmon Sashimi...as fresh as you can get! Just flown into the country this morning and straight away delivered to YO!Sushi.
A selection of their dishes...all of these came in at once! I had hard time taking photos or wanting to eat!!!
Now now, have you tried YO!sushi?
I have and i definitely love it! I heard from 2 out of 10 friends that they said that YO!sushi is just ok and expensive but the other 8 out of 10 LOVES it to the max! You see...my judgement on this is that if you want real great food (fresh and great taste) you have to pay the premium price for it! And perhaps my friends who came in only tried the usual sushi that is served on the kaiten belt! But hey some of the best dishes at YO!sushi is found in the menu and cooked right in front of you in their open kitchen, for example try their Black Miso Cod* (this is their signature dish, the best i've ever tasted) and their skewers are worth a try as well. So next time you go to YO!sushi, try out their Black Miso Cod! Yummmmyy...
If you haven't tried YO!sushi... (here's your chance!)

YO!Sushi is not a local restaurant that not only looks good but it's a franchise from the UK (started off their first outlet on Poland Street in 1997). Since then people have been queueing up their front door to have more of what YO!sushi (the new trendsetter in Japanese food) has to offer! - With more than 30 outlets opened globally, it has to be THE new trend in Japanese food outlets!
It's the Melium group people here in KL that has made YO!sushi big ever since it came into Malaysia thanks to Datuk Farah Khan who's now venturing into food outlets (from it's first Dome). Let's see what else the Melium Group will be bringing into Malaysia making our city not just a place to shop but also to dine...
YO!Sushi - with its kaiten sushi bar (conveyor belt), it served a myriad of sushi, sashimi, sushi rolls, nigiri, and awesome fried tempura and teriyaki japanese foooods!!!
The food at YO!sushi is prepared in the middle of the guest sitting area, the concept of the store is as such that is meant to provide a cheer fealing for us youngsters (teenagers / youths / young adults...you name it), its really a hip and happening place to be!
