Wednesday, started off as tiresome as the past few days have been due to Nico sleeping dreadfully, keeping us up for the majority of the night (insert images of Mombies and Dombies here) so you can image me surprise when I finally started going through my Facebook messages and saw that Miss Sushi had contacted me.
By sheer luck I had been one of 20 selected at random to participate in their inaugeration of their latest Miss Sushi restaurant! To enter you simply had to comment on and share their picture, I had forgotten that I had done so, Wooo hoooooo! Delighted at having a legitimate excuse to go out at night, as a mama my Mon-Thurs are usually spent dining in, so as to keep the mini-beastie in routine and avoid further exhausting me, I excitedly told (demanded) the hubster to be ready at 8:30...
OBVIOUSLY he was late (the office, blah blah blah, am sure he had a genuine, bonafided excuse but you know when you think 'come on, for just once leave at a normal time' and they don't, you kind of, well I kind of just switch off and all I hear is 'blah blah blah...') and I quote the Mr 'don't worry, no one will be there at 8:30pm...' #famouslastwords.
We arrived at 9:05pm and the place was jam packed. Who can refuse sushi??
Now this really shouldn't be of any great surprise as Miss Sushi restaurants have been popping up more and more around Spain (in particular Madrid). Their sushi is delicious, they make really original pieces, they have a cool cocktail menu and make a mean G&T, they do child menus, they make nutella maki desserts (I kid you not, amazingness, this should be mandatory in all sushi joints) and then as if the food and drink menu isn't enough to reel you in, think pink.
The design of their restaurants is beautiful, pink/white/black. I love all the pink lightening, it's so feminine, making it a perfect place for a first day or a girls' night, or a boys' night as it's nice to see something so visually unique.
Anyway, we can, we saw, we barely sat (too full) but we did drink (their house albarino is deliciousness) and boy did we eat! The husband, starving from the office ate a horse's share, I sampled about 8 different pieces, plus their truffled brie... truffle and cheese...I was in heaven. Nico, the sushi lover that he is ate about 4 pieces (which is loads considering he'd had an entire bowl of homemade egg fried rice and hour earlier), he is obsessed with sushi (such a fussy eater but sushi never fails (sushi and tortilla)) so he was happy as larry, even up until 10:30pm when we decided to exit as he needed his bed time.
I love Miss Sushi, if you've never been and love sushi- DO! If raw fish isn't your thing but like oriental flavours still go as they have many noodle/satay/stirfry/hot meat/tempura/gyozas/soups/seaweed/rice/teriaki/hotmeal options to choose from.
I am OVERJOYED that one has finally opened up in my barrio (neighbourhood) and look forward to frequenting it, mucho. The layout and organisation of the Las Tablas one was great and the sushi was realllllly delicious and excellent quality, I throughly enjoyed each piece, perhaps even more so than the ones I usually frequent (Calle Serrano and Plaza Santa Ana which are also epic) so I am one happy mama! :-)
Best news for me as a mama is that with a Miss Sushi opening so near me, they will deliver, in under 10 mins for free! This is an excellent option for me, especially when the little monster decides he won't be eating his vegetables or chicken AND it means ZERO washing up! Yay!
I'll leave you with some snaps we took at the event.
I am wearing top from Zara (this a/w).
