where to go now: itsu

Just in time for indoor dinning, itsu – the Asian-inspired healthy food brand – is delighted to launch its new Evening Menu with three delicious new menu items, making your much loved itsu the perfect evening dine-in destination.

From Monday 17th May, for the first time ever, the chain will be introducing the elegant Evening Menu in its 11 café stores.

To launch this wonderful news, itsu has created a selection of new dishes – SUMO chicken rice’bowl, prawn gyoza noodle’bowl and chicken gyoza noodle’bowl – all to be served out of traditional ceramic bowls, so that Asian food lovers can now enjoy a relaxed and tasty evening in itsu.

The SUMO chicken rice’bowl is made up of double [miso marinated] chicken sitting on a bed of wholegrain brown rice in a rich teriyaki sauce, complemented with zingy ginger’greens, fresh herbs and a nutty sesame seed mix.

The prawn gyoza noodle’bowl and chicken gyoza noodle’bowl comprise of four gyoza laid on thick udon noodles and are bathed in itsu’s signature brilliant’broths, topped with a medley of healthy greens and fresh herbs.

All rice’bowls and noodle’bowls from the full menu, except for the meatless’meatball rice’bowls, are topped with a succulent soft-boiled egg. They are then garnished with nori to add a depth of flavour and a squeeze of fresh lime, making them look and taste beautiful.

Transforming from day to night, itsu Evening Menu is the perfect place to meet up with a friend and have a bite to eat or the ideal location for a date.

Whether you’re looking for a speedy first date destination to avoid any awkward conversation, or to grab some delicious food before heading to the cinema, itsu Evening Menu is the perfect place to have some mouth-watering food, no matter the occasion.


The three new menu items include:

  • SUMO chicken rice’bowl (£8.99): double [miso marinated] chicken, wholegrain brown rice, ginger’greens, herbs, teriyaki sauce, sesame seed mix
