Hay Sushi

 On the way home from Gym, I stopped into Hay Sushi for some takeout. I was after something fresh and healthy. I ordered salmon, avocado and cucumber maki sushi; seaweed salad and a special seafood donburi, which at the time I had no idea what it was, but it did sound... erm, special and... seafoody.

The maki was freshy made, the rice was still warm and moist, they were so lovely they needed nothing more, no soy, no waqsabi, no pickled ginger.
 The seaweed salad was a great sizes serving, vry fresh and lovely textures.

 The miso came as part of the donburi- it was miso-y and delicious.
 And here is the donburi. Donburi, according to Wiki:

Donburi (?, literally "bowl", also frequently abbreviated as "don", thus less commonly spelled "domburi") is a Japanese "rice bowl dish" consisting of fish, meat, vegetables or other ingredients simmered together and served over rice. Donburi meals are served in oversized rice bowls also called donburi. Donburi are sometimes called sweetened or savory stews on rice.

It was a heafty serving of fresh sushi rice with a variety if seafood served over the top. Prawn, squid, salmon, mackeral, tuna and some lovely roe. If they had in fact been simmered, it was literally only for a minute as they tasted bursting with freshness.

It was a great dish and one I could really see myself ordering again.

 As I have said before, Japanese in Edinburgh is not cheap, but this was a great sized meal for the price (I believe they do 10% off regular menu for take out).

Hay Sushi is located on Dalry Rd adjacent to Haymarket Station.
