My London: Atari-Ya for chirashi sushi
Chirashi sushi is a bowl of vinegared sushi rice topped with sashimi, fish roe, seaweed and Japanese omelette. I’ve been visiting Atari-Ya for a few years now for my chirashi fix. I wish I could tell you there was somewhere else in London that served a better value chirashi but I can’t, because there has never been a reason for me to go anywhere else.
Name: Atari-Ya (see my review of the Swiss Cottage branch here)
Location: Various – on this occasion, I visited the branch at 20 James Street, W1U 1EH. Note that this is a sushi bar with limited seating.
Price: £15 for the super deluxe chirashi as pictured with an additional order of fatty tuna sashimi costing £4.20 extra
Go for: raw fresh seafood, prepared Japanese style.
