Promised I’d keep an eye on the place, didn’t I?
There was a very heartening post on the Facebook feed this afternoon. One of the best foodie destinations in Birmingham is expanding.
Sushi Passion has been a big hit since it set up a tiny bar among the fish mongers of the Bullring’s Indoor Market.
It was a plucky, bold move for Adam the owner, who as mentioned in previous posts, was always the best chef at Yo Sushi’s former Brindley Place location. Adam struck out on his own, making amazingly presented, high quality sushi with a true foodie sensibility.
He received Facebook flack for setting up in the market and answered back valiantly. Were they kidding? This is the best place to be, surrounded by ingredients at their freshest. Half the fun of shopping at London’s Borough Market is visiting the food stalls inside.
Thankfully lots of us saw that this was a good thing and Sushi Passion had regular lunch queues and loyal customers. Customers who are about to be very happy with the news that Sushi Passion is setting up shop in the Great Western Arcade.
From August, Unit 31 will be open for sushi galore. There will be the familiar bar up front as well as low traditional tables and instructions on how to eat and what to order from the staff.
Adam is a very inventive chef so expect lots of specials.
This is good news for the Great Western Arcade, situated in an area that unlike Grand Central or the Mailbox, is not seeing an influx of city investment.
But with Sushi Passion joining the ranks of the Loki Wine Tasting House, the Whisky Shop, Anderson & Hill and The Bread Collection, the Arcade is fast becoming a viable foodie destination in Brum.
And best of all, Adam assures me that the Bullring sushi bar is going nowhere. Bonus foodie points.
