Expect attentive service, cold and fresh food, and a leisurely atmosphere.
The first course begins with a classic miso soup, warm and comforting. It’s also served with a cold soba noodle salad, tangy and tasty. Along with that, you’re served a tray of edamame and seared garlic. It’s a feast in itself but you’ll want to save room.
The mains, of course, consist of sushi – a sizeable plate per person, packed with maki rolls, sashimi, fresh pieces of fish. It’s a sushi lover’s dream with plentiful servings of freshly made pieces.
For dessert, a bowl of fresh tropical fruits and a scoop of sorbet is a light way to finish the meal. Overall, Sushilicious is a foodie brunch and a fabulous way to end the weekend.
