Sticks'n'Sushi
Japanese food, cooked by Danes, served in Wimbledon

London

Wimbledon's most famous for its amazing grass, and its Wombles, which were most likely inspired by amazing grass. Adding "fruits from the sea" to that list: Sticks'n'Sushi, opening tomorrow.

Founded by a dude named Thor (his parents must have been hammered) and a pair of brothers named Jens & Kim in Copenhagen, Sticks crosses the North Sea to land in a huge, brick-walled coach house, setting the meal-ing mood with minimalist modern fittings spread throughout a couch area, central bar, and private sake room, and specializing in both rawness and animal skewers scorched-to-order on an open charcoal grill.

Oceanic bounty covers nigiri, chirashi, futomaki & hosomaki, with standouts including fresh cuts of soy-marinaded salmon, a huge 17-ingredient bowl (tuna, crayfish, tempura shrimp, wasabi roe, avo, shiitake, etc.) called the "Large Chaos", and rolls like the chilli-laden Red Dragon, also a movie that, at least at the box office, did not cause large chaos.

Yakitori sees a whole farmyard of impaled offerings, like miso-marinaded pork, duck breast w/ daikon pickles, chicken teriyaki street meatballs, and whole herb-buttered lamb chop, which'll ironically make your fingers too fat for chopsticks.

Get yourself in the same condition as Thor's parents with shochu cocktails and Japanese & Danish hops, including home-brewed sushi-pairing numbers labeled Black & White Biiru, made with Japanese rice & wheat respectively, but sadly, no grass.
