Sushi is just one of those foods that almost everyone loves because it’s not only tasty and healthy, it can also be easily customised to suit every individual’s taste. Prefer cooked fish? No problem.

If you’re having a potluck or picnic, a simple Bolognese, aglio e olio or vegetarian pasta from PastaMania (halal-certified) or d’Good Café is perfect.

Another popular pick is the Baja Fish Taco, with beer battered sea bass, red cabbage, chipotle mayo and pickled red onion wrapped in a tortilla.
