Just had lunch at Mori’s. Not scouse slang for Morrisons – the newest Asian chain in town.
Like alchemy, the winning formula of success remains unknown for the new wave of concept eateries. Many food-fads try, few remain stuck to our branded hight-streets. This one’s got a a rather left field take on the whole scenario: noodle soups and frozen yoghurt.
Mori is a bright concept in healthy Asian eating. Using only the freshest ingredients we have created an inexpensive and delicious selection of sushi, bento boxes, salads, soups, noodles and frozen yoghurts.
There are quite a few of these chains on offer throughout cities, perhaps not as niche as Mori but heading that way.
Japanese food is notoriously healthy but when you start to Americanise it with cream cheese, mayonnaise and avocado you run into problems. It ain’t called a california roll for nothing. Like spicy tuna rolls? Already around 250 calories – that’s 1.5 bites! Tuna sashimi however, is all goodness at 10% of a roll’s calorie count. Chicken or salmon with udon noodles and crunchy vegetables in a clear soup is delicious, but the white carby noodles add up at the end. A balanced meal nonetheless. (Just don’t add the teriyaki sauce and go for the chilli and lemon instead.)
Frozen yoghurt is a diet DREAM! With zero fat and 130-200 calories or 1.3-2 bites (depending on size) you can decorate away to your heart’s content with a choice of:
Strawberries/ Blueberries/ Pom seeds/ Kiwi/ Pineapple.
LOVE YOU MORI
