The Sticky Bundits | Sushi Burger

A few weeks ago I whizzed to London Bridge on my lunch break to enjoy a treat with Tabl. Hosted by The Urban Kitchen and Sticky Bundits, my mid-week lunch was filled with new and exciting tastes.

I arrived at the venue hot and flustered on a rather humid day, so was happy to be greeted with a cold birch water and refreshing salad of Asian-Pickled vegetable salad with smoked trout and Thai basil.

As I had to scoot off and get back to work the lovely guys behind Sticky Bundits whipped up their signature sushi burger for me 'to go'. The concept of a sushi burger (two 'buns' of griddled sushi rice filled with deliciousness) was completely new to me, but there was no doubt in my mind that the dish would be delicious - and it was.  

I chose the 'Okonomi-Yummy', which is a seasoned chicken thigh with a moreish sweet and smoky sauce, pickled ginger, red cabbage, kewpie mayonnaise and a sprinkle of seaweed.

I hastily made my way back to the office whilst attempting to eat the burger without dropping a morsel. All I can say is WOW. The chicken was so juicy and the sweet and savoury flavours of the rice, sauces and cabbage gave such an interesting flavour combination - it was like nothing I've ever eaten before.

If you'd like to try a sushi burger yourself then pop down to Lower Marsh market on Thursdays or Fridays or catch them at Maltby Street Market on Saturdays.
