Newsfeed: Sushi Shop’s new menu, what’s in season now and Birds Eye’s Fish Finger Sandwich Awards

by Charlotte Davidson

Every week, we round up the newest openings, menus and exciting news from the food world. This week, it's Sushi Shop’s new menu, what’s in season now and Birds Eye’s Fish Finger Sandwich Awards.

New location: Motu

Canary Wharf-ers rejoice – Indian takeaway superstars Motu are opening their third kitchen today in London’s business district. Now Motu’s authentic Indian dishes can be enjoyed in the city too. Growing from Battersea and Camberwell, the kitchen offers classic but refined Indian dishes such as Kashmiri lamb shank rogan josh and Madras prawn masala. The new kitchen in Canary Wharf will also offer exclusive dishes such as tandoori paneer naan roll and lamb seekh kebab naan roll – perfect for lunchtime.

Birds Eye’s fabulous Fish Finger Sandwich Awards

Last Thursday 16 February saw the launch of Birds Eye’s first Fish Finger Sandwich Awards. Under the keen eye of head judge Gregg Wallace, contestants had to cook up their fish finger creations for guests. The winners were Gabrielle Sander, who added fish fingers to mayo, smoked paprika, capers, lime juice, wasabi and rocket in a farmhouse bap, and Chris Lanyon, who used fresh Cornish hake fillet coated in panko breadcrumbs and sandwiched it between locally made multi-seed bread with homemade tartare sauce. Their recipes will be printed on select Bird’s Eye packets so you can cook them at home.

New menu: Sushi Shop

Stumped for lunch today? Bored of soggy sandwiches? We recommend trying Sushi Shop’s new menu. With four new dishes from two-Michelin-starred chef Kei Kobayashi, it’s the perfect way to up your lunch game. Our favourites include the salmon gravlax roll, with carrot, cucumber, turnip and black olive tapenade and the red miso cucumber salad with peanuts, lime, maple syrup and yuzu zest. It’s easy to order on their website so there’s nothing stopping you.

In season: lovely leeks

February sees leeks at their very best so why not pop them into your dinner plans this week? We love this magnificent mash with leeks and cheese – it’s the perfect accompaniment to any meal. Delicious.

New menu: Smokey Tails

Last weekend, 18 and 19 Feb, saw Smokey Tails at Hoxton Square Bar & Kitchen launch a bottomless boozy brunch inspired by that all-American style. Offering bottomless food AND drink, you can choose from Bloody Marys, Mimosas, brioche French toast with fried chicken, bacon and maple syrup, and pancakes with fruit compote and vanilla cream… and more. Bring your stretchy jeans.
