Abokado – healthy and great tasting

Last Tuesday, 1st April, was an unusually warm day – I mean t-shirt weather and sunburnt arms!

It coincided with my first visit to Abokado to get lunch, so I ‘dined out’ in Whitechapel’s Altab Ali Park (previously known as St. Mary’s Park, and the site of the old 14th Century white chapel that gives the area its name).

Camera Roll-23

Tuna + salmon nigiri with edamame ginger, wasabi + soy sauce @ £3.99

Soaking up the sunshine, I munched on a Super Sushi box of tuna and salmon nigiri @ £3.99 (249 calories) described as “a beautiful selection of long line caught tuna and avocado rolls and superior grade salmon and avocado rolls on a bed of edamame with soy sauce, wasabi and ginger”. Excellent; top quality fish.

Shwraps are also worth a try, particularly the avocado and ginger wrap @ £1.49 (ripe avocado and pickled ginger with carrot in a seasoned sushi rice roll – 96 calories) – light enough to have two for lunch.

Great quality, healthy, super tasty and great value; a western ‘take’ on Japanese sushi. What more could you ask for?
