Sundried Tomato and Avocado Sushi Roll - Sakura Kaiten Sushi
Sundried Tomato and Avocado Sushi Roll AUD4.20 - Sakura Kaiten Sushi
Peter suggested that we go to this sushi place near his office. It turns out that this was a sushi place that sounded a bit too trendy for my liking, especially after traditionl Japanese sushi like anago (sea eel), whitebait and tobiko and even natto and okra sushi!
As it turned out, it wasn't bad. Not great, but not bad. I even tried the sundried tomato and avocado sushi roll (black plate), but I could not bring myself to try the wrong-ness that was air cured ham and cream cheese sushi (black plate)!
There were also things like fried wontons (black plate), fried soft shell crab (red plate). For dessert, they had dorayaki, ice-cream mochi and various cakes, most like straight from box to plate :)
The two of us spent AUD45.80 including green tea. A bit pricey for the quality.
Oh, and I nearly forgot to mention that I was forbidden from taking photos. It's a good thing I got away with 4! Surely you can't run a restaurant based on how your food presentation alone? They should have more faith in the taste.
... and it's obvious, Peter likes his avocado! So did I! :P
