Dublin Yelpers like to roll and that they did at Musashi, Dublin's newest sushi spot! This spot has only been open 3 weeks and already everyone is talking about it, not only is the sushi great but it's a BYOB spot! €3 corkage for your wine and no charge at all for your beer – turning Japanese never felt so good!
Emma who is the manager of Musashi welcomed everyone with some tea and explained about how their chef Fidel has been making sushi for 10 years, so they've got the best! Emma firstly taught all the Yelpers how to hold chopsticks and then Fidel made some sushi for everyone to try their new skills on! After that Fidel taught us all about the different types of sushi.
We started with Nigiri sushi, made with sushi rice and fresh fish. The sushi rice is hand formed into a small clump, and the fish is sliced and pressed on top of it. All the Yelpers got to make there own with varying results! After that Fidel made some Gunkan which had some bubbly fish eggs. Then we had Norimaki which is sushi rice and seafood, rolled in dried seaweed sheets. Finally we tried Temakizushi and a California Roll. Once again everyone was invited up to make their own.
Fidel gave some excellent tips about how to make great sushi at home and the secrets of perfect rice. Emma treated us to miso soup at the end and printed an informative handout about the excellent benefits to your digestive system that it bestows. Basically it will detox you and keep you skinny – hurrah!
Thank you so much to Emma, Fidel & all the Musashi staff for making us feel so welcome and teaching us so much about sushi. So far the reviews are full of praise and you can read them here! You can check out the gossip of the night here! And finally you can drool over the sushi and the pretty faces of yelpers here!
