Feng Sushi

Festival Terrace

Southbank Centre
Belvedere Rd
SE1 8

We had tickets to a later showing of Every Good Boy Deserves Favour so dinner beforehand seemed appropriate. The Southbank is full of chain restaurants and we settled on Feng Sushi for something a bit lighter. A chose an inside-out salmon and avocado roll and 2 pieces of salmon nigiri, while I had the Japanese Bento Box (above) which included two pieces of veggie tempura, Nippon duck roll (no idea why they call it this because it's not duck at all, it's tofu), tuna and salmon nigiri and tuna and salmon sashimi. Prices are pretty steep for what you get, but perhaps that is the price you pay for environmentally friendly and sustainable seafood? At least it all tasted good, and the hot sake we had alongside was the perfect accompaniment. Dessert was a bowl of sweet chestnut, green tea and black sesame ice cream. I think I'd skip the chestnut and just get green tea and black sesame next time, but that's just a personal preference. At least I wasn't too full afterwards to enjoy the performance, which was a great mix of new orchestral music and playwriting (Tom Stoppard and Andre Previn make a good team).
