Pairing culinary favourites from England, Ireland, Scotland and Wales with iconic Japanese classics, the Home Nations menu includes:

Fish and Chips Nigiri with Wasabi Peas

This fusion of an English classic sees a pillowy chip replace the rice from a traditional Nigiri sushi roll and topped with breaded fish. It’s then wrapped in seaweed and served with a side of Wasabi peas.

Haggis and Carrot California roll with Tonkatsu Sauce

Scotland’s national dish forms the heart of this distinctive take on the Japanese rice roll, which is paired with tangy Tonkatsu sauce.

Welsh Rarebit & Pickle Roll

Paying tribute to the iconic Welsh tea-time staple, a savoury sauce of melted cheese, mustard, paprika and Worcestershire sauce is draped over a traditional pickle sushi roll.
