Our Chirashi Bowls
What we Ate at Omoide Shokuji Bermondsey Street
Homegirl Tried: I choose the Gift From The Garden Chirashi Bowl. This comprised of five-grain sushi mixed with miso aubergines, yuzu avocado, salad, charred broccoli, edamame, pickles and crispy shallot. I omitted the tofu and had mushrooms instead. £6.95 for the standard size.

Homeboy Tried: Homeboy tucked into the Yuzu Salmon Chirashi Bowl. This contained yuzu ponzu salmon, sushi rice, yuzu avocado, cured cucumber, sushi ginger, goma wakame, pickles and crispy shallots. The other two Chirashi Bowl options were The Humble Chicken with den dashi chicken and Pride Of A Nation with tuna wasabi shoyu. £7.50 for the standard size.
Yuzu Salmon Chirashi Bowl
Our Verdict: Wow, big thumbs up! The Chirashi Bowls are super tasty and very filling. These are made using fresh, premium ingredients which results in a colourful presentation. Great value for money.
Also on the Menu at Omoide Shokuji Bermondsey Street
Also on the Menu: You also have the option to make up your bowl by picking a base (sushi rice, the five-grain sushi mix or salad mix). Add protein (tuna wasabi shoyu, salmon yuzu ponzu, umami chicken or miso aubergines). Dress it with a tasty sauce (goma dressing, shichimi mayo, etc.). Pimp it up with other ingredients (sushi ginger, radish, cured cucumber, kimchi, etc.). Or you can try Dashi with udon noodles – Miso Dashi with tofu, Shiitake Dashi with chicken nanban or Tonjiru Dashi with pork belly.
Prices: Standard bowls are £6.95-7.50, large bowls cost £8.95-9.50, the price of creating your own bowl depends on how wild you go. Standard Dashi is £2.20-3.40 and large is £5.50-6.50.
