The new counter will open just in time for the launch of Sushi Daily’s latest new product – an eastern take on a western classic – the sushi sandwich.

Replacing traditional bread with Sushi Daily’s sticky rice, the all-new Sushi-San is filled with western flavours and finished with a wrapping of black nori seaweed.

Alternatively, the Sando offers authentic zingy fillings between slices of Japanese shokupan bread. Prices for the Sushi-San and the Sando range between £4.15 and £5.75.

The counter will also offer fresh and handmade sushi, including nigiri, sashimi, maki and rolls. From sushi menus for one to sharing platters for a party, customers can also add hot food options, starters, sides and desserts to their shopping list, including popular Mochi desserts.

Ian Roberts, managing director of Sushi Daily said: “We offer an array of handmade options for customers looking for a freshly-prepared and convenient lunch or snack.

“With the increasing popularity of Japanese food across the UK, why not recreate that restaurant experience at home and treat yourself, safe in the knowledge that you’re also making a healthier choice than some of the go-to takeaway options?

“Customers can see their sushi being prepared while they shop and even order platters for family meals or special occasions as we look forward to celebrating together once more.”
