St Andrews has a sushi problem. Between the option of sushi from a Thai restaurant, the seemingly-defunct student operation Soooshi and the meagre pickings on the shelves of Sainsbury’s and Tesco, it is difficult to fill the craving for fresh rolls and sashimi in our little town. It has been a trying time for sushi lovers in this corner of northeast Fife – until now.
I have never really ventured much to the “end” of South Street. My knowledge pretty much ends at Church Street, and everything after that is vague and ephemeral – there are some pubs, I think, and cafés, probably, and then Jannettas, somewhere around there. So I had seen Zizzi before, I just never really paid attention to what seemed from the outside like a bar, with two tables outside and a couple of chairs.
