Last night, we headed down to London Fields to check out the newest but most famous Japanese street snack that has set up a pop up restaurant to bring these snacks to the UK.
The business owned by Mike Tsang and Tet Ogino, two friends who bought these dishes to a London street market are successfully bringing this new delicacy to London Feilds. The guys were super kind and were rushing around quickly producing these dishes. Before our meal arrived we tried the two cocktails a Mojito (my favourite) and a Martini, set to compliment the food. Which they definitely did!
Each musubi is lovingly hand-made using quality ingredients, creating gourmet flavours such as slow-braised ginger beef and three day salt cured salmon. Mr Musubi trades every Saturday at Broadway Market, serving ice cream mochi (sweet rice desserts filled with gelato ice cream) alongside their musubi.
We tried one of each, so there was beef, which I have to say was amazing and my favourite, I was worried I wouldn't like the salmon but I found it super yummy, same with the mushroom which I never eat either. I found these just perfect as a filler food, not necessary a full on meal but definitely a good after work snack with a few drinks! The parcels are covered in seaweed to be held and contain sticky rice. Again, I normally dislike sticky rice especially Yo Sushi's yet I loved this.
The sides were an omelette which mike explained is layered and cooked really uniquely which I found really interesting as us english rarely wrap a omelette especially in a bite size piece! Then I love peas like this and these were super yummy!
