Dear Swissgent83,

What our waitress tried to explain for you is that you ordered garlic marinated fried whole sweet shrimps. Sweet shrimps are small raw ocean shrimps that we marinade and deep fry. You should eat them whole with shell on, and many people find the head very tasty as well. Same as for example the popular tempura fried soft shell crab; you eat shell, head, bones and all the rest of the crab! (see google for nice recepies). If you use larger shrimps the shell wouldn't be crisp, and it would be a completely different dish!
For some westerns deep fried whole sweet shrimps may be unusual, buf if you travel to asia it's common. Nevertheless it's one of our most popular starters, and since we are an asian fusion restaurant this goes very well with the concept. I'm sorry if by any means our menu is unclear, of course we want our guests to order food according to their liking, and in your case another starter probably should have been more suitable.

As stated in the menu we are East West, east meets west, and it's reflected in our food. Our asian fusion grill includes organic, fresh and local ingredients. On your grills yesterday you had medium grilled fillet of beef, chipotle chili sauce, grilled chicken with yuzu chili, onion chutney, butternut squash purée, marinated aubergines, deep dried sweet shrimps (again), caper sauce, grilled fresh swedish mackerel (with skin on) - all served with our deep fried local new potatoes mixed with nori (japanese seaweed) and sea salt.
Maybe our concept is not for you, and if you prefer more classic style grill, Örebro offers plenty of classic pubs and restaurants in, for example Jensen Böfhouse, Ivy bar and grill, Pitchers, Olearys, etc.

Best regards,

Ki Sandholm, Frans Jonsson & Frida Brynhildsen

“Sushi with excellant service”
Reviewed November 2, 2011

East West Sushi located in Orebro, Sweden has great service and the best sushi I have had in Sweden. The restaurant is located in central Orebro with a excellant view of the city castle (Slottet). Upon entering, I was greeted warmly and fealt at ease. The quality of food at this restaurant is of high standard. The price is a little more than other sushi restaurants in the area but, you cant beat the atmosphere that comes with your meal. In my opinion one of the best dining experiences in Sweden.

“Good but not Great”
Reviewed July 31, 2010

We ordered the sumo selection of sushi and a drink. I would say they do have nice drinks which went well with the sushi. The atmosphere is great, however, the sushi is pretty good but not great. I enjoyed their glass noodle salad we had as appetizers and the seaweed salad that came with the sushi was excellent. One can get better sushi in a larger major city such as San Francisco, CA or Baltimore, MD or perhaps Stockholm. But for this midsize city, the restaurant is of good quality and taste. I wouldn't mind going back with a group of friends who would enjoy it. However, I wouldn't take someone who has had the best sushi in Japan.

“PITCHER's! thats the restaurant”
Reviewed February 23, 2010

I've been to Pitchers, the nenx door, in the same building- and that is PERFECT!!! nice variety of drought beer, good snaks and main dishes! It like a pub, sports pub, but it is not noisy, you can always find a place there, and it is worth visiting!!!! My favourites in Orebro
