Shizusan is introducing a special menu for all the sushi lovers in Pune, Mumbai& Bengaluru. The Travelling Sushi festival which runs from 11th July to 31st July will have 8 special sushi rolls specially created by Chef Paul Kinny that are world-inspired. They promise to add a surprise element in each of them, so be prepared to be amazed!
On being asked what’s different in this new menu, Chef Paul Kinny says, “It breaks all boundaries when it comes to choice of ingredients and flavours; this menu is inspired by signature local dishes of various regions and is a result of months of research and experimentation.”

All of these options serve 8 pieces and a priced at 565++ and 665++ for vegetarian and non-vegetarian sushi respectively.
I found all the 4 vegetarian variants to be quite good. If I had to pick favourites, it would have to be the Greek Maki and the Mediterranean Roll. The Feta cheese and the hummus worked beautifully with the respective sushis.
If you are already in love with sushi, I recommend you visit this festival to try out some marvellous creations.
