Mori Sushi is a fusion joint that combines Japanese classics with Latin flavors. Located at Emaar Boulevard, the restaurant is vibrant with chic interiors that make for a great vibe – including an outdoor seating arrangement that can be enjoyed during Dubai’s cooler months.
Because the restaurant’s menu is extensive, our server for the evening coached us through the team’s signature dishes. We started off with Mori Sushi’s bestseller drinks, Red Defender and Very Passion. Both beverages were fresh and featured a delicate balance of flavors – all at an affordable price. We instantly fell in love with Mori Sushi’s drinks menu and wanted to try some more –we ended up ordering the best virgin mojitos drinks we’ve had in the last few months! The mojitos are also priced affordably, and one serving fills more than two standard drink glasses.
I was excited when the appetizers came in. We picked Chicken Gyoza – a chicken-stuffed dumpling served steamed or pan fried – and. Spicy Mayonnaise Shrimps: a dish comprising tempura prawns tossed in subtly spiced mayonnaise and served on a bed of lettuce. We also loved munching on the Sweet Chili Edamame.
We ordered the Mori Vegetarian Combo for our main course, a dish that included two kinds of Veg Makis, one of which is the Hoso Kappa Maki, a cucumber roll. My favorite was the Ura Maki, a delicious combination of avocado, cucumber, sun-dried tomatoes, and cream cheese. New Style California roll and Crispy Shrimp Avocado roll were the next dishes on our table, and they were both quite delicious too.
Mori Sushi has quite a few dessert options to choose from. We ordered the Swiss Chocolate Fondant and the Toffee Pudding Cake, of which the former was the clear winner. After all, molten chocolate cake served with a scoop of vanilla ice cream is something you simply cannot go wrong with. Summing it up, Mori Sushi is a restaurant that should be on your go-to list this year, especially with cooler temperatures finally hitting the city.
