Kosher sushi time

Angie Jacobs discovers the draw of a sushi restaurant that does not compromise on taste – or its kosher credentials

Borehamwood is the place for kosher sushi, said no Jew ever, but this changed in December when Yossi Stauber opened Baba Sushi within the dairy restaurant Sababa.

It’s under the supervision of the KLBD, but not only is it kosher, it is meshugge fresh and tasty. We kicked off with maki rolls, inside out rolls, nigiri, sashimi and salmon crunch rolls.

People don’t usually like sharing with me, but my husband had an easy gig as I am atrocious with chopsticks.

Our food was attractively served on a black slate and every mouthful was delicious and succulent – as good as any sushi I’ve ever tasted.

There were still things on the menu that we needed to ‘research’, so round two consisted of a salmon and avocado hand roll and a yellowtail, cucumber and spring onion one.

To ensure we had really worked the joint, we also ordered cooked Teriyaki salmon dragon rolls.

Baba Sushi’s base is a light, modern and high-ceilinged space and there’s no schnorrering with the portion sizes.

It’s competitively priced and, if you want to keep tabs on your spend, you can get a poke bowl for under a tenner.

Baba Sushi delivers to north-west London, Bushey and Watford as well as being on Deliveroo. It also caters for parties and sushi buffets. I’m gonna get me some chopstick lessons and return.
