From spicy garlic shrimp and ahi poke, to coconut berry pancakes!
While the rest of the world has long since had the opportunity to see Disney’s latest animated movie Moana, Japan has only just recently released the film in theaters on March 10. In celebration of the acclaimed film, nationwide conveyer-belt sushi chain Sushiro has released a special limited-time menu in collaboration with the film, taking inspiration from its tropical setting.
▼ Kids will also receive Moana stickers, and the chance to win other Moana goods!
With sushi starting at only 100 yen (US$0.89), and featuring popular Hawaiian flavors like ahi poke, it’s a great way for moviegoers to wrap up their Moana experience and tingle their taste buds.
▼ Ahi poke sushi
A sushi twist on a traditional Hawaiian favorite. The raw tuna is marinated in sesame oil and soy sauce before being piled atop sushi rice and a leaf of lettuce. The whole thing is finished off with a whipped cream topping and a sprinkling of bacon bits.
▼ Hawaiian roast beef sushi
Tender slices of roast beef are topped with avocado, onions, and an onion-based dressing.
▼ Cobb dressing shrimp sushi
Shrimp, onion, and bacon-bit sushi, drizzled with a spicy cobb dressing.
▼ Spicy garlic shrimp sushi
It’s hard to go wrong with garlic shrimp. This particular garlic shrimp also carries a tangy spice of curry.
▼ Spicy swordfish cutlet burger (280 yen)
Juicy swordfish is breaded and fried in-store, sandwiched between rice-flour buns, and paired with crispy lettuce and a spicy curry-flavored sauce.
▼ Cobb salad (180 yen)
Lettuce topped with chicken, avocado, and shrimp, drizzled with tangy cobb dressing, and sprinkled with crunchy bits of bacon.
▼ Coconut berry pancake (280 yen)
From the pancake specialty shop VERY FANCY comes this delectable dessert of sweet, fluffy pancakes made with ricotta cheese and meringue. The pancakes are topped with mixed berries, coconut cream, and drizzled with a berry sauce.
▼ Coconut shaved ice (280 yen)
For a cooler, yet equally satisfying dessert, the shaved ice is flavored with condensed milk and coconut cream, and is topped with vanilla ice cream, berries, berry sauce, and mango sauce.
Sushiro has come out with a number of tasty dishes in the past, but we’ve gotta say this time around is looking the best so far!
