New sushi counter brings Japanese cuisine to Derby Asda

A new sushi counter offering Japanese cuisine has opened at a Derby Asda store.

Shoppers visiting the supermarket in Derby Road, Spondon, this week will notice the new Sushi Daily counter.

The counter, which welcomed its first customers yesterday, Wednesday, June 16, offers fresh and handmade sushi, including nigiri, sashimi, maki and rolls.

Founded in 2010 by entrepreneur Kelly Choi, the counter has become the franchise’s first branch in the county of Derbyshire. There are other Sushi Daily counters at Asda and Waitrose supermarkets across the UK.

It offers an open kitchen experience where customers can watch as an on-site chef prepares their food.

Ian Roberts, managing director of Sushi Daily, said: “We offer an array of handmade options for customers looking for a freshly prepared and convenient lunch or snack.

“With the increasing popularity of Japanese food across the UK, why not recreate that restaurant experience at home and treat yourself, safe in the knowledge that you’re also making a healthier choice than some of the go-to takeaway options?

“Customers can see their sushi being prepared while they shop and even order platters for family meals or special occasions as we look forward to celebrating together once more.”
