YO! Sushi’s Chicken Katsu Curry YO!Nut
YO! Sushi is celebrating 25 years in the biz by adding some new dishes to the menu, including the doughnut-katsu curry hybrid, aka the YO!Nut, that nobody knew they needed (or probably even asked for). The panko breadcrumbed-doughnut is topped with shaved coconut, spring onion, shredded ginger and a katsu curry sauce, and we don’t recommend tackling this one with chopsticks.
