The post-apocalyptic world isn’t pretty. + Get a Cheetos roll from Mori Sushi’s new menu.

📺 ON THE TUBE TONIGHT-

(all times CLT)

If off-beat sci-fi dystopia is your thing, the guy behind District 9 has you covered: A series of shorts produced by Neill Blomkamp’s Oats Studios has landed on Netflix, bringing the director’s idiosyncratic visual style and high-concept sci-fi to TV. From aliens and evil politicians to uncomfortable cooking shows, the 10 shorts each follow a different tale from a different location, with the common thread being that humanity is suffering. The intriguing stories are all left open-ended, leaving you to fill in the blanks. Think Love, Death and Robots and Black Mirror, but with more violence.

It’s Klopp v Guardiola in the Premier League this afternoon: Last season’s champions Man City take on Liverpool at Anfield in today’s 5.30pm kick-off in a huge game that may help determine who eventually wins the league.

There are four matches in La Liga this afternoon: League leaders Real Madrid travel to Espanyol for today’s 4:15 pm kick-off, while third-placed Real Sociedad also play away from home at Getafe at 6:30 pm. Villarreal play Real Betis at 6.30pm while Granada and Sevilla kick off at 9 pm.

Serie A: Fiorentina take on league leaders Napoli and Jose Mourinho’s fourth-placed Roma play Empoli at 6pm. Atlanta and AC Milan kick off at 8:45pm.

🍣 EAT THIS TONIGHT-

Mori Sushi’s new menu is kinda insane, but give it a chance: Egypt’s most famous sushi joint is out with a new menu inspired by Brazil’s Sao Paulo that combines some of the weirdest flavors we’ve ever seen. From fruits in your dragon roll to green beans and cheetos in a crunchy roll, the options had us raise our eyebrows several times. However, if your palate is a bit more on the adventurous side, we actually love the unique and diverse flavor profiles in the 40 new additions to the menu. We recommend the nigiri salmon truffle, the Salvador roll, the Sao Paulo roll, and the Fuji roll (yes, it does have strawberries on top). They’ve also added new sweet rolls such as a Reese’s roll that mixes chocolate, peanut butter, banana, and rice. The caveat with Mori Sushi is that the quality hasn’t been consistent across all branches. We recommend the branches at Cairo Festival City, CityStars, and Mall of Egypt.

🎤 OUT AND ABOUT-
