What is a NoriTaco?
Sugoi JPN is an asian fusion food concept of Japanese and Latin food. It is the perfect balance of flavors that you would expect from a sushi filled taco. The taco is made from Nori (seaweed) and the delicious stuffing of the taco is filled to the brim with fresh Japanese and Latin ingredients. Sugoi JPN is revolutionizing the Latin-Japanese asian fusion food market with its twist on NoriTacos! Their NoriTacos is a perfect hybrid between a Japanese Nori and a Mexican Taco. Much like sushi, the NoriTaco always starts with a sushi rice base followed by the toppings which range from soft shell crab, to fried chicken and salmon. Check out the three different types of NoriTacos I tried below.

Who is Sugoi JPN?
They are an asian fusion takeaway and delivery kitchen based in London. They have a number of locations popping up around the London area. With their first kitchen based in Bethnal Green, they have now expanded to South Wimbledon and will soon open a kitchen in Palmers Green, North London. They’re working hard to open new locations every few weeks, and are expanding, so you might have one in your neighborhood soon! Sugoi JPN’s mission is to fuse together the best of Latin and Japanese cultures and flavors to make one of London’s best new street food concepts.
My visit to the South Wimbledon Location:
Having eaten at Sugoi JPN multiple times before at their Bethnal Green location. I picked Sugoi JPN as my first ‘eat out’ location in London since before lockdown. Sugoi JPN Wimbledon is takeaway only at the moment I got my dishes and sat right outside their shop-front at their new location in Merton Abby Mills. It’s a great outdoor location to grab a few drinks and a bite to eat. I was so happy to have NoriTacos again, by far my favourite street food in all of London.
