• Oishi, the leading sushi delivery service in Cape Town and Johannesburg, has partnered with one of the first Japanese gins to hit South African shores, Roku Gin to make your Valentine’s Day a romantic evening you won’t forget!

    For one day only, Oishi will be offering the first 30 orders R500 or more a complimentary bottle of Roku Gin valued at R300. Pre-orders are essential and can be placed via the website www.oishi.co.za or on the Oishi App (download available on Android and iOS).

    At the forefront of the sushi industry, Oishi has opted to break away from tradition and introduce healthier sugar-free sushi rice. “Traditional sushi rice is prepared with the Japanese short-grain rice, rinsed five times, and then mixed with rice vinegar, salt and sugar. Japanese chef and restaurateur Nobuyuki Matsuhisa, of world-renowned Nobu, was one of the first sushi chefs to replace sugar with Monk Fruit” explains co-founder Daniel di Trapani.

    Monk Fruit is a zero-calorie and natural alternative to sugar – native to Southeast Asia, it takes its name from the Buddhist monks who first cultivated the fruit, using it to make sweet and cooling drinks in the hot Asian summers.

    From mouth-watering sushi boxes to poke bowls, Oishi is a delivery-only service with four delivery kitchens in the City Bowl, Claremont, Bryanston and Illovo – perfect for a romantic candlelit dinner in the comfort of your home accompanied by a refreshing Roku Gin cocktail.
