Welsh sushi unveiled to mark status for Conwy from Japanese Tourist Board

If you follow our blog, you will know that Conwy was recently voted by the Japanese Tourist Board as the most beautiful place in the UK to visit. So as part of the celebrations to mark the recognition, East, a local restaurant has unveiled its very own Welsh sushi that you can now enjoy with its unique Welsh twist.Visit Conwy recently commissioned its own Welsh sushi – wittily referred to as ‘wushi’. The traditional Japanese dish has been cleverly recreated using the finest Welsh ingredients including laverbread, cockles, lamb, leeks, Welsh cheddar, and sewin – sea trout from the coastal waters of Wales. Sam Nayar, chairman of the Destination Conwy Steering Group, was quoted as saying: “It was a huge honour for Conwy town and Wales to be recognised in this way and our Welsh sushi is a fun, but respectful nod back to Japan. “It’s also a way to celebrate The Year of Adventure in Wales and encourage people to try Welsh ingredients in a unique way. “We’ve affectionately called the new creation ‘wushi’ and it will hopefully be a hit with diners, and possibly a permanent fixture on East’s menu.” Hisae Driver, head chef at East a Llandudno pan Asian restaurant which created the tasty treats said: “We jumped at the chance to do something so quirky and we think our Welsh sushi will prove to be very popular. “Wushi will be available throughout this month at East but you never know it might catch on and become a Welsh tradition.” Why not take a trip to the restaurant while you’re staying in Towyn Holiday Parks, or other nearby sites in North Wales?
