I`d been meaning to catch up with online marketing expert Leon Bailey Green for a long time so we decided to have lunch at Sushinho in Chelsea, a restaurant and cocktail bar with a Japanese Brazilian theme.
Situated on the Kings Road among many of my favourite designer stores and boutiques Sushinho is quite hard to miss with its dark neutral exterior, so be careful not to walk by and fail to notice it.
Sushinho, 312 – 314 Kings Road, London SW3 5UH
When I arrived I noticed the intimate lighting at each table setting and the restaurant itself had a minimalist interior as expected. I love Japanese and any kind of Asian inspired food so I was really looking to sampling some of the dishes. The a la carte menu looked interesting with a fabulous selection of Japanese dishes that had a slightly unusual twist to them. We wanted to try a handful of dishes but as it was lunchtime we decided not to overload our palettes with too many flavours all at once. Luckily we both share a similar love for the same sorts of flavours so we opted for the crispy chilli lemon sole and pimenta prawns to start with. I have to say the pimenta prawns were delicious and we couldn`t get enough of them! The lemon sole was a little disappointing and lacked flavour but the prawns definitely made up for it.
To keep the theme going throughout our main courses I opted for the seafood tempura, which consisted of king prawns, squid, scallops and white fish ordered with a side dish of sautéed greens. Leon chose the grilled tuna with cassava puree and chimichurri sauce and as it arrived this dish smelt divine. Even though I had tucked into most of my tempura I was on the verge of having food envy as the smell of the tuna hit me. I could see for myself that it was cooked to perfection and with the facial expressions Leon was making I know he was enjoying it too!
After a brief break we decided to try a couple of desserts, my passion crumble tasted really refreshing and surprisingly light, a fabulous choice after two quite heavy dishes. The marble cheesecake that appeared in Leon`s place looked equally as tasty and had it not been lunchtime I`m sure we would have tried the recommended cocktails to go with them!
If Sushinho tickles your taste buds and you want to sample fine Japanese Brazilian food why not take advantage of the introductory lunch meal deals: 2 courses for £10 and 3 courses for £13 (Monday – Saturday 12.00pm – 3.00pm). Enjoy!
