Guests who wish to add drinks and dessert can add a signature drink Yugen Berry for only AED 25, Purple Yam Ice Cream for only AED 10, Purple Yam Milkshake for AED 15, or Rock and Roll Shrimp for AED 30.
Speaking about the collaboration, Josh Yugen says, “Fashion has been my driving force ever since I was a kid, for me it is a beautiful platform wherein anyone has the power to innovate, but also to have fun and I have been an avid fan of Sumo Sushi & Bento ever since I arrived in the UAE in 2007. In addition, the food that they serve is truly a comfort food for me and for many people, and for this summer, I curated a fashion meal that highlights its might for aesthetics, especially these days wherein we enjoy our own photography of food and moreover it includes all the best sellers of Sumo Sushi in one meal, in their most affordable price ever.”
“I am so humbled and honoured to the whole team of Sumo Sushi & Bento for giving me this opportunity to be the new face of their first-ever fashion collaboration in 21 years.”
Also speaking about the collaboration, Owner and CEO of Sumo Sushi & Bento Julianne Holt-Kailihiwa says, “Being the most followed South East Asian personality on Instagram and having his years of experience and credibility in the publishing, travel and fashion industry, Josh truly embodies what a Sumo Sushi & Bento ambassador is. The latest Fashion Meal collaboration to merge food and fashion is another landmark for us and I am humbled to set a trend in the F&B industry in the UAE.”
