Bonsai Bistro, Edinburgh

March 4, 2013

Visit to the Bonsai Bistro at West Richmond Street.

Dark dragon (tempura prawn and cucumber topped with avocado, eel and mayo) had a brilliant texture: soft with some crunchiness. The mayo could have been left out as it’s a bit like putting ketchup on the pizza.

We also had salmon & cucumber maki, sashimi with scallops – they were fresh and sweet (arrived 2 minutes after the picture was taken), and beef tataki. All really good and arrived quite quickly. The food made us ignore the student-budget decor.

The trouble with sushi is that it’s not lumberjack food. A. commented: “My stomach is not sure if I have eaten or if I’m going to eat.”
