FIRST SA RESTAURANT TO SERVE CANNABIS-INFUSED SUSHI
27 AUGUST 2019
Blowfish Restaurant began serving sushi 18 years ago in its Table View location with epic views. Now it’s spicing things up by adding two new items to its enormous offering: the CANNAfornia roll and the CANNAfornia poké bowl.
Both come with a dressing infused with cannabis oil, an ingredient touted for its miracle-like health qualities and appearing on restaurant menus more and more. (Like SA’s first cannabis pizza.) Why the rise in cannabis-infused food? Earlier this year, the Department of Health updated its regulations, making it legal to purchase the substance.
The Blowfish CANNAfornia roll has a filling of salmon and prawn, with cream cheese and a topping of avocado. The CANNAfornia poké bowl consists of sushi rice laced with a sweet chilli and caviar mayo with a hint of cannabis oil. It’s topped with salmon, edamame beans, pickled ginger, strawberries, cucumber and avocado.
All of that while you enjoy one of the most Instagram-worthy views in Cape Town.
