Hot new London restaurant openings: May

London may be awash with sushi restautants but newcomer Yoobi in Oxford Circus claims to be the capital’s first “temakeria” specialising in hand rolls filled with sushi rice.

Using sustainably-caught Scottish fish from the same supplier as Nobu, Yoobi plays on the Japanese influence in Brazil, meaning rolls are rammed with the likes of spicy salmon with bicinho pepper, and seared Pincaña beef with a spicy teriyaki sauce; spicy tuna with romaine lettuce, croutons and spicy sauce; 20 hour cured salmon with Asian pear; and tuna tartare with guacamole, capers, jalapeños, lime and sea salt.

Cocktails fuse flavours from Brazil and Japan, such as the Samba Mule featuring reposado Tequila, lemongrass, saké and ginger beer, and the Sakerinha, made with Ozeki dry saké and fresh strawberries.
