YO! Sushi’s Chef wins ‘Best Menu Innovation’ at the Development Chef Awards

Mike Lewis, Group Executive Chef, at YO! Sushi has won the award for ‘Best Menu Innovation’ at the inaugural Farm Frites Development Chef Awards.

The brand new awards, organised by Restaurant magazine, seek to recognise the best menus, dishes and multi-site chefs across the restaurant and pub sector.

YO! Sushi’s menu has always been at the forefront of Japanese cuisine in the UK for the past 16 years, showcasing the very best culinary delights, innovations and new tastes that Japan has to offer including being the first UK restaurant group to bring popular Japanese rice burgers to the UK. Growing from an offering of 40 dishes back in 1997 to a fantastic wide selection of 80 dishes today, the menu includes a whole host of hot and cold street food favourites and regional specialities that continue to make the nations mouth water, whether they love meat, fish or vegetables.

Lewis said: “At YO! Sushi we work hard at bringing you the best tasting Japanese inspired dishes to satisfy all types of taste buds. We break down boundaries and constantly strive to excite and inspire our fans with a range of delicious hot and cold Japanese inspired food.

We regularly fly back and forth to Japan to ensure that we are bringing the most up-to-date trends and authentic cuisine to the plates of the nation – so it’s an honour to be recognised for our contribution to the hospitality sector and win this Best Menu Innovation award.”
