This is Not a Sushi Bar is a contemporary Japanese restaurant based in Milan that specialises in bowls and sushi rolls. Now that maybe sound pretty mundane, until you hear that you can pay for your meals here with our Instagram... 

How does it work?

To exchange your clout for a tasty dish, all you have to do is upload a picture of the order to your public Instagram and tag the restaurant @thisisnotasushibar and the hashtag #ThisIsNotASushiBar.

So how much is sushi here?

If you're wondering how “much” or many followers you need in order to get a free set of delicious makis here, it is somewhere between 1,000 to 5,000 for a single dish and 5,000 to 10,000 for two dishes. More than 100,000 will award you with a free version of their whole menu. At this rate, the likes of Chiara Ferragni might be worth a lifetime of free sushi from this place!
