SUSHI + COCKTAILS AT STICKS 'N' SUSHI

Sticks 'n' Sushi
Yesterday was a gorgeous sunny day in London, my sister Thuy and I had a massive sushi craving so we made a lunch date at Sticks 'n' Sushi in Covent Garden. They are a popular Danish restaurant group bringing a fresh Japanese dining experience to London. The atmosphere is relaxed and cool, staff are super friendly and food excellent quality and delicious. The menu is a mix of well presented sushi and yakitori grill sticks, with a good selection of Japanese inspired cocktails too (think lemongrass and ginger.)

Whilst sipping on our deliciously refreshing cocktails, my sister had the LG Saketini and I had the Yuzu Lemonade, we started with some Ebi Bites - tempura shrimp with chilli and coriander and miso aioli - yummy and crispy. FYI if you're anything like my sister and like to seek out new cocktail jaunts, be sure to check out her blog - The Payday Cocktail Club for fun drinking inspiration.

Now onto the sushi! There's so much choice, we decided to go for the 'Duck, Salmon and Their Friends' and 'Green Keeper' selection, which was a mix of sushi roles, duck rolls, roasted vegetables, grilled edamame beans and maki rolls. Everything was fresh and tasty, we were spoilt for choice and suitably full!

I would recommend Sticks 'n' Sushi if you're looking for a Japanese dining experience with an European twist (not a red lantern in sight.) The service is spot on, great menu selection as well as cool decor. The Danes know how to do Japanese food well, we'll be back again!


We took a stroll around the Piazza in Covent Garden, popping into check out the make up in Burberry, Chanel and Dior - beauty heaven! I tried on a lovely lipstick in Burberry - Golden Peach, we all need a coral shade for spring right?


The afternoon sun was lovely, we grabbed ice creams and wondered down Regent and Oxford Street, not before seeing the sun slowly starting to set, the skyline was pretty pinks and orange but I couldn't really capture how nice it was on camera!


What's your favourite place for sushi?

    Ah this makes me want sushi and cocktails. Sticks n Sushi is fab, I usually head to their Wimbledon branch as it's a hop skip and jump from home.
