Friend: “Hey, do you recommend any great-tasting, affordable sushi places?”
Me: “Yes…..FENG SUSHI

A familiar dialogue that I have with my friends and my answer is always the same! Now let me start off by telling you that I have a lot of love Sushi. It is one of my all-time favourite dishes, that I can never seem to get bored of; which is probably because I don’t have it as often as I would like too –“Why?” I hear you ask! Because Sushi is so darn expensive!

A problem that I think most of us can all agree on and yes, there are a few cheaper options out there, but I find that they end up being disappointing because they typically [namely the all-you-can-eat buffets] provide a restricted choice of Sushi options as well as lacking in the quality department.

Enter “Feng Sushi” – which can help solve all of your Sushi woes. Being a regular visitor of Feng Sushi, I am pleased to say that neither my stomach nor my bank balance has been left disappointed thus far and the trend continued, following my recent visit.

Starter

Now technically these dishes are starters [because it says so on the menu]; but as Feng Sushi (and most other sushi places) operate in a kind of tapas-esque fashion, the plates do seem to arrive at a first come first serve basis, so these plates may not necessarily be at the start of the meal. This doesn’t bother me in the slightest as I always arrive hungry for Sushi and love to get straight in. But if this a concern for you, I am sure a simple request to the waiting staff will see your food arrive in a fashion of your choosing.

When I visit a Sushi restaurant, a pre-appetising snack is always fundamental and the bowl of the Salty Edamame is a great choice to start with; these immature soybeans are a simple yet tasty nibble as you patiently wait for your handmade Sushi to be prepared.  You do have the choice of getting the Salty or Spicy Edamame and although the Spicy option [Edamames coated in spicy miso] is good, I find the coarse texture of the salt mixed with the dry green vegetable works perfectly. 

The plate of Vegetable Spring Rolls with a Sweet Chilli Sauce dip is another strong choice for a starter.  The Spring Rolls are of a crispy and brittle texture with an array of vegetables crammed inside and scooped with a generous amount of sauce is a spicy and sweet treat.  Although, I do find the acute angle at which Spring Rolls are cut, did make it difficult to scoop up as much of the sauce as I would like.

The Main

As I alluded to earlier in my intro, Feng Sushi has an excellent variety of Sushi options for you try; options include Sashimi’s; Nigiri’s; Sushi Rolls; Hand Rolls and more. For the sake of this blog, I will only be looking at a couple of dishes, which is why I wanted to explicitly praise their menu variety.  

Let’s start with Salmon and Avocado Rolls, which comes in 6 pieces – perfect for sharing between two or three [although I could easily gobble the entire plate in one], the salmon and avocado are tightly wrapped in a blanket of rice with a sprinkle of sesame seeds. The softness of the avocado wonderfully melts in your mouth and when intertwined with the saltiness that comes with salmon, it is an absolutely delicious combination. 

The ‘piece de resistance’ and my all-time favourite dish at Feng Sushi is the King Prawn Dragon Roll. Served as a beautifully shaped caterpillar [I can only assume it’s meant to look like a dragon, but all I get is caterpillar] with a drizzle of teriyaki sauce across the plate. There is a conflict of soft and hard textures when you devour this; the soft avocado crashing into the crunchy outer shell of the King Prawn works really well. It is a plate that is an absolute must-have when visiting Feng Sushi. [or try three times, as we did]!

The Fulham branch of Feng Sushi is quite the small space and aesthetically is quite simple; which does help make the place seem bigger than it actually is. The space restrictions do mean that seating is quite limited; so I would always recommend booking ahead and reserving a table to ensure a spot is guaranteed. The restaurant does have a small little fish tank and some interesting art to add to the atmosphere which is gratifying to look at, but it does often feel cramped and claustrophobic during peak hours.

Feng Sushi is a great option if you are looking for a great price and good quality Sushi; typically you would be looking to spend on an average of £15-£20  per person for a good number of sharing plates. But you may even get it cheaper, if you have a Tastecard you can get 50% off the food bill [which is amazing!], or alternatively,  to check out their website and Instagram pages where I find that discounts are regularly made available.
