Flavour of the Week: Sticks'n'Sushi

Two years after its introduction to the capital's food scene, Danish-Japanese fusion Sticks'n'Sushi has just opened its second London location. Jon Hawkins finds out what the fuss is about.

What have the Danes ever done for us? Pastries, a Shakespearean prince and a red-conked goalkeeper apart, not a lot – but things are looking up. After opening in Wimbledon in 2012, Japanese-influenced Danish restaurant Sticks’n’Sushi now has a second London home (to go with 10 Copenhagen sites) just off Covent Garden. Inside you’ll find oh-so-NYC bare brick, dark tones and sleek wood, while the food – quelle surprise – leans towards raw fish and yakitori-style grilled skewers. The uramaki rolls (from £6.50 for eight pieces) taste as delicate as they look, while the spicy chicken bites (£6.50 with ‘Table for 2’ sharing plate, £39.50) are sticky-fingered fun you’ll fight over with your table mates – even if they're neither sticks nor sushi. – Jon Hawkins
