Does My Bomb Look Big In This?

Review - Umi Sushi & Udon *UPDATED*


Nine months after first discovering this restaurant-masquerading-as-a-sushi-train, I’m back for a more wintery bite.

Before warming my cockles with the tempting Miso Congee Hotpot with Wagyu Beef (9+), Vegetables and Fresh Udon ($32.80)...

...I couldn’t resist revisiting some of my favourites.

A topping of super-fresh sea urchin roe had me cooing anew over Chawan Mushi ($5.80), a savoury custard, now beautifully presented in an egg shell.


Raw fishes, which have always been a highlight, seem to have edged up another notch; so definitely include Chef’s 7-Piece Sashimi Tasting Plate ($38.80) in your selection.


Blue fin tuna fans, particularly those delighting in toro, the fatty belly, should keep your eyes peeled for special...

Sashaying into hot dishes, they’ve also upped the udon ante with freshly made Spinach Udon with Tempura Prawn ($12.80).

They goes down well with a baby bottle of Choya Umeshu ($7.50), presented on ice with a (totally chewable) preserved plum.

Chef got somewhat experimental with my dessert, producing a devilishly good mocha spring roll christened with green tea ice cream. We must all campaign until it’s on the permanent menu!


Now, did I mention there's $7 weeknight parking below? And if you wanted to see my original thoughts on this spot, you can find them back HERE.
