Nine months after first discovering this restaurant-masquerading-as-a-sushi-train,
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...
...blue fin tuna cutting ceremonies, offering O-Toro Sashimi ($15.80) at an affordable price!
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.
