Leithers rejoice! There is now decent sushi to be had on Leith Walk, and they deliver too.
White Sushi is a little place with big ideas. Head chef Sebastian Szpilski is bringing American-style fusion sushi rolls to Edinburgh, and with 14 years’ experience he’s keen to experiment and offer bespoke rolls and creations too. His combos may initially sound odd to sushi traditionalists, but they taste great: the three fish futomaki is rolled fat with a generous amount of fish and the balance between the added chilli and sweet oshinko works so well that you can forgo the soy and wasabi. If you want to try something very different go for duck futomaki with cranberry and cucumber, or dragon eel tempura with kanpyo topped with cream cheese, avocado and masago. Sushi is clearly the passion and it’s probably where you want to keep your focus – seafood goulash is an interesting idea with a spicy, zesty flavour but is let down by overcooked udon. With only 18 seats in this simply decorated restaurant full of dark greys and wood grain, keep in mind that takeaway and delivery are always on offer.
