Meet the vendor: Wasabi | City Pantry

We've recently partnered with Wasabi to bring your colleagues delicious office lunches. We caught up with the Wasabi team to find out what's been going on behind the scenes.

We're really excited to announce our new partnership with Wasabi, bringing delicious sushi and bento to offices around London! We caught up with Joao Marques, Wasabi's Digital Marketing Manager, to find out a little bit more about London's beloved sushi chain.


Tell us a little bit about the story behind Wasabi.

The first Wasabi began in 2003 when our founder, Kim, opened the first branch in Embankment, London. Kim, a fresh food market trader in Camden, wanted to share his passion for fresh, authentic, handmade Japanese sushi and bento with ‘sandwich loving’ Londoners - he knew they’d love it. With a bright, clean, modern Japanese style, Wasabi presented a new lunchtime alternative of sushi, sashimi, California rolls and authentic Japanese dishes that proved immediately popular with hungry Londoners in search of something new, different and healthy.
