Another space that’s a bit blink and you miss it, Sushi Show has been serving up very decent sushi down Camden Passage for a while now. You can pop in to grab a takeaway, or sit at the bar opposite the window and watch the fools who don’t realise what they’re walking past. The sashimi is reasonably priced and cut fresh in front of you if you sit at the smaller kitchen bar. If sushi isn’t your thing then there’s also a small hot selection of donburi bowls as well. The downstairs has a sort of secret room that is great to know about if you and some friends want to get dinner somewhere that feels a bit hidden away.
