Moana-themed sushi coming to Sushiro
The weather this week is looking ok...nothing too bad-there's no rain or snow in the forecast, but nothing to get too excited about either. Every day is looking like highs will be around 14C or so with overnight lows still a bit chilly at 4C or 5C. The good news is that we are supposed to get cherry blossoms from March 28th and I'm going to a hanami party on April 2nd...assuming the weather is nice, it should be a good day. The only problem is that it's a potluck party...I have no clue what to take...any ideas?
While the rest of the world has long since had the opportunity to see Disney’s latest animated movie Moana, Japan has only just recently released the film in theaters...it was released on March 10. In celebration of the acclaimed film, nationwide kaitenzushi chain Sushiro has released a special limited-time menu in collaboration with the film, taking inspiration from its tropical setting.
▼ Kids will also receive Moana stickers, and the chance to win other Moana goods!
With sushi starting at only Y100, and featuring popular Hawaiian flavors like ahi poke, it’s a great way for moviegoers to continue their Moana experience after the movie.
▼ Ahi poke sushi
A sushi twist on a traditional Hawaiian favorite. The raw tuna is marinated in sesame oil and soy sauce before being piled atop sushi rice and a leaf of lettuce. The whole thing is finished off with a whipped cream topping and a sprinkling of bacon bits.
▼ Hawaiian roast beef sushi
Tender slices of roast beef are topped with avocado, onions, and an onion-based dressing.
▼ Cobb dressing shrimp sushi
Shrimp, onion, and bacon-bit sushi, drizzled with a spicy cobb dressing.
▼ Spicy garlic shrimp sushi
It’s hard to go wrong with garlic shrimp. This particular garlic shrimp also carries a tangy spice of curry.
▼ Spicy swordfish cutlet burger (Y280)
Juicy swordfish is breaded and fried in-store, sandwiched between rice-flour buns, and paired with crispy lettuce and a spicy curry-flavored sauce.
▼ Cobb salad (Y180)
Lettuce topped with chicken, avocado, and shrimp, drizzled with tangy cobb dressing, and sprinkled with crunchy bits of bacon.
▼ Coconut berry pancake (Y280)
From the pancake specialty shop VERY FANCY comes this delectable dessert of sweet, fluffy pancakes made with ricotta cheese and meringue. The pancakes are topped with mixed berries, coconut cream, and drizzled with a berry sauce.
▼ Coconut shaved ice (Y280)
For a cooler, yet equally satisfying dessert, the shaved ice is flavored with condensed milk and coconut cream, and is topped with vanilla ice cream, berries, berry sauce, and mango sauce.
Sushiro has come out with a number of tasty dishes in the past, but we’ve gotta' say this time around is looking like one of the best so far! Whether it technically counts as 'sushi' is up for debate, but who cares about that as long as it tastes good, right?
Have a great day!
