Vegetarian Japanese in Southsea - Yo! Sushi and Sakura | Headhuntress Guide to eating out in portsmouth and Hampshire

•Sakura is the Japanese restaurant on Albert Rd, which has been an instant hit for all who dine there. The majority of the menu is fish based, but I had some veggie dumplings, some veg udon noodles and some perfectly cooked mixed vegetable tempura. Japanese cuisine is so clean tasting and a real treat, there is a little space for prams at quiet times. They offer takeaway but no home delivery as yet.

But what is this?  Competition?  Competition on a conveyor belt no less.  Because Yo! Sushi has landed at Gunwharf Quays. This is fast food at it's very fastest. And oh, how I wish I still ate fish, because the menu has got me salivating!

But for us veggies - there is plenty of choice and it is super affordable too - with Miso Soup only costing £1.00 - yes, one tiny pound and simple avocado and cucumber rolls at only £1.70, the problem will be that you will want to try everything on the menu.  But hey, there is always another day.
So, what to have, mmm, well veg udon noodles are a must as are the Pumpkin Korroke Crispy Japanese breaded pumpkin croquettes with a fruity sauce, yum and the crunchy tofu is perfect because unlike the Age Dashi Tofu at Sakura, Yo Sushi serve their's with a miso based sauce instead of a fish based sauce.  Oh, and don't forget the tempura - it's beyond yummyville.

Oh and just when you thought things couldn't get any better let me tell you something more my friends - they do - HOME DELIVERY!  Woo hoo.  Well, it does cost an extra £3, but it is being despatched all fresh and fabulous direct from Gunwharf Quays.  So get ordering - or pop down to Gunwharf quick sharp.
