Sushi bar offers taste of the Orient
2:00pm Friday 20th April 2012 in Business
A NEW sushi bar has opened in Oxford promising fast, healthy food from local suppliers.
Chefs at Sooshe, in the Covered Market, create the Japanese-style delicacies using ingredients from neighbouring market traders.
It is the brainchild of Ori Halup and Vicky Troth, from Chipping Norton, who already run the Missing Bean cafe in nearby Turl Street.
The couple found the inspiration for the businesses after meeting at film school in Sydney, Australia.
Ms Troth, 32, said: “The model for both the coffee shop and now the sushi bar were based on what we had seen in Australia.”
Chef Rosie Ware said: “We make everything fresh and really wanted to have the ‘theatre’ of making it for the customer – they see the food being created in front of them.”
