Lovers of Japanese food must give YummyTori on Edinburgh’s Lothian Road a try. It adds a different spin to the cuisine by specialising in Japanese tapas and we’ve picked some of our favourites below.

Yakiniku beef

This uses the chef’s very own special recipe for the black pepper sauce which coats the tender and thinly sliced beef.

Wasabi prawns

Again the chef’s own recipe for wasabi sauce is used as a sauce for the crispy battered prawns offering a delicious bite to the seafood.

Teppan gyoza

Comforting and homely, the teppan gyoza dumplings are pan steamed parcels of goodness with aromatic, succulent pork and vegetables.

Fish fans should give the salmon tataki a try. The salmon is cured and flash seared then drizzled with a  fresh citrusy ponzu vinagrette.
