Who Said Sushi Shouldn’t Be For Kids?

So Restaurant teaches London’s children life skills with a twist

Published on July 18th 2011.

Who Said Sushi Shouldn’t Be For Kids?

IT certainly wasn’t So Restaurant, as they’re all about embracing the youngsters this summer.

Every Thursday (apart from 21 July, 18 and 25 August and 1 September) the restaurant’s sushi chefs will be helping 7_– 14 year old learn the fine craft of sushi making.

Many of the chefs have over 20 year’s experience, so kids will be in the safe hands of the professionals. Whether they learn to make salmon, tuna and prawn nigiri or salmon and avocado rolls, the hands-on experience looks set to be pretty exhilarating for the young culinary apprentices.

The class costs £50 per child. Pricey? Perhaps, but just think of the years to come and rejoice at the thought of countless plates of sashimi. And the smile on their faces at the end of the two hours is priceless.

Just think, by the time these seven year olds get to university they’re sure to be the envy of their halls with their amazing sushi skills.

The workshops are relaxed and informative so kids won’t need to arrive with years of sushi knowledge behind them. It’s all about learning to make sushi in a fun environment.

Based in Soho, So Restaurant has been offering sushi infused with European flavours for many years and this summer it seems they’re opening their doors to pass on their passion to a younger generation. Who knows, these kids could be the future faces of Michelin starred Japanese dining – m aybe Nobu should be watching its back.

Offering something different to the average kids summer club, So Restaurant won’t improve the youngster’s football skills, nor will children come home with a basic Spanish vocabulary.  What the kids will get is two hours of entertainment and enjoyment whilst simultaneously learning the fine art of sushi-making. It’s a contemporary life skill really, isn’t it?


Each workshop is limited to twelve children. Classes can be booked by contacting Tamayo Yamano on 0207 292 0767 or emailing info@sorestaurant.com. More details can be found on their website.
