Full review from manchesterconfidential.comConfidential went to New Samsi (36-38 Whitworth Street, City, 0161 279 0022) last week. This was for a Sumo event in collaboration with the British Sumo Federation.
There were demonstration fights and a banquet. The top Brit Sumo chappy, Steve Pateman, had a chat to Confidential. Steve was a medallist in the 1996 World Championships and was trying to whip up more recruits for the sport. This is his picture, a bit sweaty after a bout. Sweet looking fella eh? He was a good lad despite an apparently itchy loin-cloth.
The event put New Samsi firmly back on our radar, showing there’s real merit in the cooking there.
We’ll sneak back and review shortly – we’ll also take a look at Samsi Express, the shop downstairs, which claims to be ‘the largest Japanese supermarket in the North West’.
