Where to go now: Sushi Revolution Shoreditch

Calling all sushi-lovers across London, we have a new competitor entering the ring. Not only are we obsessed with Sushi Revolution in general, but the brand new Shoreditch location is definitely giving main character energy!

If you’ve lived in London for longer than two seconds, you’ll notice that we have a pretty competitive sushi scene. From the fresh ready-to-go experience, the questionable supermarket meal deal, to the high-end (usually reserved for birthdays) experiences, London has seen all the greats come and go. Well, team Verge was lucky enough to cheers our chopsticks at the wonderful opportunity to eat until our bellies burst at the brand new Sushi Revolution location! Tasty appetizers, tantalizing tempura, glistening salmon and gorgeous rolls were all we could think about, and boy oh boy did we have exactly that.

Let’s give credit where credit is due; Tom (the chef) has been making sushi at the highest level for 15 years through working in some of the top-rated sushi restaurants in London and Europe!

If you’ve dined at Aqua Kyoto, Chotto-Matte or the renowned Sticks n Sushi, you’ll be very familiar with his work. Tom describes his style of cooking as having traditional techniques but with modern flavours- like his soft-shell crab roll with kimchee hummus. The fusions of new meets traditional is perfectly balanced throughout the menu. You can expect to see fan favourites as well as inspiring new takes that will leave you raving to your mates.

Next up, the good stuff; let’s talk menu. If you’re anything like us, the thought of flavours and cultures combining immediately makes you so hungry your tummy talks, and every single item on the menu was more tempting than the last.

The menu has been designed to be quick, easy and versatile to suit every taste bud. Each dish is served simply and carefully fused while being presented with design in mind.

Begin with snacks including Spicy Edamame with chipotle miso, crispy and sweet Padron Peppers or our favourite must-try juicy Chicken Karaage. Why stop there? You might as well make room for some delicious Ebi Dragon Rolls, sticky and tingly Spicy Tuna rolls or get your veggie dreams reimagined with their Green Garden Uramaki!

Not to worry, vegans are welcome too – all non-meat/fish dishes are vegan with the stand-out favourite being the Fried Japanese Aubergine with beetroot den miso, crispy onions, sesame and coriander cress. A beautifully presented Cucumber Tataki with vibrant red pepper ponzu sauce is light and delicious. Care and attention were taken to prepare amazing vegan options which stand alone on the menu rather than as boring alternatives.

To go with your sushi, there’s Traunstein Helles Lager, Asahi, Brixton Brewery IPA and APA, plus a choice of red, white and sparkling wine at pocket friendly prices. If you’re really in the true Japanese spirit, you can get your dose of impeccable Sake from the Sushi Revolution House Serve. Sip a carafe of classic sake for just £8 or Yuzu House Sake for £10- delicious fun doesn’t have to break the bank! Also try a succinct list of quick-to-serve cocktail that has been created using the Dalston’s Soda range. Try the Hanami Highball (rum, sweet vermouth, citrus and Dalston’s cherry) or the Ichiban Iced Tea (vodka, gin, rum, tequila, melonade, green tea and Dalston’s lemon).

If you’re still scared from last time and you’re desperately trying to avoid any Sake or cocktail related incidents, Sushi Revolution has your back (we’ve all been there…). Give some non-alcoholic beverages a try with all premium Dalston Soda flavours and traditional pop fan favourites too!

We’d also like to give a special shout-out to our phenomenal waiter, who gossiped and laughed with us constantly, perfectly matching all the great vibes Sushi Revolution has to offer. Aidan (the waiter) has been working in hospitality for 25 years and is well-versed in managing bars, restaurants and hotels. He oversees the front-of-house and drinks menu. A former bar manager at the iconic Claridge’s Hotel and Gordon Ramsay’s spectacular Maze Grill, his last position was as restaurant manager at Sticks n Sushi’s flagship in Covent Garden where he met Tom and the revolution concept came to be!

Enough of us chatting on and on about our wonderful afternoon in sushi heaven; grab your mates and head into Sushi Revolution Shoreditch for a truly brilliant time. After all, all you really need in life is summer memories and great sushi.
