|Something Fishy in The Kitchen|
Feng Sushi now delivering to Ealing - enter our competition now and win
Going out for a meal is great but sometimes not always possible so it's important to have a few standby options for those times you may want something a bit special.
There are a number of good curry houses that deliver in Ealing but I've never had sushi brought to my door before - until now.
Feng Sushi is a UK chain founded in 1999 and was the first restaurant to offer sushi as a delivery. It now has branches throughout London with a new one just opened in Ravenscourt Park - and ready, willing and happy to deliver (for free) to Ealing.
We have a number of fishy fans in the family so when I was offered the chance to try out the new service I jumped at it - anything to save me cooking for a night!
The driver arrived on bike and delivered our colourful meal which was quickly pounced on by hungry adults and children alike - the kids viewed the unique dining experience as something akin to a bit of a party.
It's not just sushi though, there are chicken dishes too and my really son enjoyed the Terriyaki Wings (£4.75) which he said tasted 'lovely'. His only complaint being that wings aren't quite as meaty as other cuts of chicken and they disappeared too quickly for his liking.
We were given not one but two sharing platters to try.
At £29.75 a platter they certainly don't come cheap but they are plentiful and would normally feed quite a number of people. Needless to say my ravenous family swooped in and made light work of the pretty presentation.
There was a huge selection of salmon and tuna maki, salmon nigiri, seared salmon, edamame beans and mooli (a sort of oriental radish).
Sushi is so very easy to eat because it is so very light and tasty and feels really rather good for you, it's very easy to pop one after another of these delicious rolls into your mouth.
Feng Sushi is a principled operation and advocates sustainable sourced fish. It doesn't use blue fin tuna for example - supplies of this are now dangerously low - instead they serve hook and line caught Yellow Fin tuna from the Maldives.
They say that although they serve Japanese food they try to source ingredients much closer to home, buying ingredients from local suppliers or within Europe. If they absolutely have to come from Japan the products are sent via land or sea, never air freighted.
The firm has been awarded Three starts from the Susatinable Restaurant Association
Their menu is seasonal and is changed 6 times (see their Early Spring 2014 menu) and there is sure to be something on their for everyone, meat eaters and veggies are catered for just as well as pescetarians.
If empty plates can be viewed as a testimony of whether it was a success let's just say there wasn't a morsel left from our delivery.
It's probably not something you would have regularly as it could prove costly but as a special treat Feng Sushi certainly hits the mark.
