Unusually for one of Lisbon’s fast food cafe’s, Noori Sushi serves cheap and filling sushi by way of Brazil but there is a logic. Oddly, the largest Japanese population found outside of Japan is in Brazil, where sushi is found on every corner of every major city and, of course, the delicate fare is given a flamboyant Brazilian twist.
Noori Sushi is not much more than a kiosk with a few tables, the queue for the temaki rolls loops all around the block in weekday lunch hours, so time your arrival well. The menu is a choice of temaki or nori rolls with various cuts of fish. The local favourite, which is more indigenous to São Paolo than Tokyo is the Hot Filadelfia – a thick ice-cream cone-like roll of rice, filled with deep-fried tuna, cream cheese and fried onions. About as fatty as you can make sushi and justifiably delicious.
