Sakushi Japanese noodle and sushi bar
In a great central location, on Campo Lane in Sheffield city centre, there is a Japanese noodle and sushi bar that goes by the name of Sakushi. The first of its kind in the city, Sakushi offers the full range of Japanese cuisine; which is by no means limited to sushi and sashimi. In other words, if raw fish is not to your taste then there are plenty of other delicious dishes to try. But, if you have never tried sushi, then I would urge you to give it a go; it often takes people by surprise and ends up becoming a firm favourite; I often opt for sashimi as it is the rice, not the fish, that I find a little offputting.
Japanese cuisine is deeply ingrained in Japanese culture, serving fresh restorative food in calming surroundings; an experience that is designed to nourish both the mind and the body. Freshness is all; not just because of the nature of the food but because they believe respect for nature, and the flavours it brings, to be of paramount importance.
Simple and fun conveyor belt dining
Sakushi has a dining area as well as the conveyor belt bar-like seating that is common to most noodle and sushi bars. If you have never done conveyor belt dining before, the concept is quite simple and a really fun way to eat. Dishes are priced by colour and you grab what looks good as it trundles past. The price you pay is calculated by your stack of coloured dishes at the end.
The menu at Sakushi offers a range of Japanese foods; prepared fresh to order, they come out from the kitchen as soon as they are ready. Ramen noodles are thin egg noodles in deeply savoury broth and various additions such as chicken or prawns. Don Buri or Kare and Rice are both rice dishes with topping such as Japanese curry or teriyaki. There is also a selection of other noodles tossed with a stir fry type sauce of fresh and crunchy vegetables and meat, fish or chicken.
Alongside various types of sushi and sashimi there are small tapas type dishes such as chicken yakitori, steamed gyoza dumplings with seafood and vegetable fillings, or handmade Japanese spring rolls. Also available are a variety of crisp fried tempura or crunchy and piquant salads. The traditional Bento box, the lunch box of Japan, comes with your choice of dishes plus rice, miso soup, salad and pickles.
