Dream Come True: This Japanese Eatery In Bandra Is Serving Mind-Blowing Sushi Burritos

14891 Interested |


A small takeaway and delivery joint has come all the way from Tokyo! People, meet Yugo Sushi, the sushi joint that’s taking Bandra by storm.

What Is It?

As the sun gets ready to set, the board outside Yugo Sushi reads closed, opens at 7pm. Despite the notice chalked in white, people still drop by to say hi to Yugo, and the missus. While Yugo takes care of the operations, the sushi is all Mrs. Yugo. The place is enough for two people to sit down on tiny chairs that inhabit the establishment. The joint, having shone at a couple of pop-ups in the city, comes straight from Umegaoka in Tokyo.

Chow Down

Yugo Sushi makes hand-held sushi burrito – a concept that is all the rage in Japan. With no time to sit down to carefully dip the sushi in soy sauce with a pair of chopsticks, burrito sushi is unabashedly casual. And we like that. It’s the breaker of chains of sushi snobbery. At Yugo, you can order in a butter chicken sushi roll with the same elan as a salmon roll. Their salmon is sourced from Norway every week and they insist on using fresh ingredients. So much so that they’ve refrained from using imported sushi rice. Instead, they use Indian rice {which may be cringe-worthy for some but those can go to a fancier restaurant}. The idea to make the most of the land here is not just brilliant but also a Japanese philosophy that the world needs right now.

So, We're Saying...

Go for the warmth, taste, value for money and the sheer piece of hard work that Yugo Sushi is.
