Toraya

Thursdays are usually the weekday where supplies in the refrigerator are running low. With The Sister and I both often having events on both days over the weekend, we do the grocery run on Thursday nights, but then what about dinner on Thursday itself? No one is really in the mood to cook after an…

Masuya Japanese Seafood

After a month’s absence from beloved Sydney, I had been missing out on a lot of things. The regular things – work and gym, and most importantly, catch ups with the girls. Lara Croft and I have been doing regular cider and sushi nights every Tuesday fortnight and after a month absence without decent sushi,…

Sushi Tei

I love good quality, fresh Japanese cuisine, there’s no doubt about that. For a while now I’ve heard about Sushi Tei and its two branches – the slightly newer one on Liverpool Street and its original counterpart on Chifley Square. I had been wanting to check it out, and with late night shopping last Thursday…

Sushi-Ya Artarmon

A couple of years back now, my family and I discovered what we now know as ‘Little Japan’: a little avenue of cafes and shops on the opposite side of Artarmon to the main strip of shops. While there are a variety of odd cafes and restaurants, the place is unmistakably popular for the small Japanese grocer…

Sushi Hotaru

Having been to Makoto in Chatswood for so many years, I’m a staunch supporter of them and their other Masuya restaurants, although I’m disappointed to say that the quality of their Makoto sushi train at World Square in the city has declined in quality over the last year. I’ve preferred to get sushi sets and…

Acacia Modern Japanese Dining

I’ve discovered that over the last couple of months, I’ve been seeing more and more of Japanese ‘fusion food’. Now before you harp on about how good authentic, traditional Japanese is (think of your ordinary sashimi, udons), this is essentially the same path of how what has now become known as ‘Modern Australian’ cuisine has…

Wasabi Bistro

I say, brrrr, it’s cold in here! It has been downright FREEZING this week, with maximum temps during the day barely hovering at 16 degrees, and the wind chill making it seem even colder. Currently in the house, it’s an icy 11 degrees, so I’ve got my little heater in my room humming noisily beside…

Daku Japanese Dining

Wooooo I finally finished my g-damned Advanced Torts essay; 2000 words done and dusted. I really needed a day without study and just to relax, and so I decided that today would be the day to unleash all of my gluttonous tendancies. The Japanese restaurant that used to occupy this premises was somewhat dingy and…

Makoto Sushi Bar (Chatswood)

I’ve been to this place more times than I can count, but this is the first time I’ve been back since I’ve started this blog, so I thought it was worth an entry to let all you know what a gem of a sushi train we have on this side of the Harbour Bridge. This…

Sushi Choo – All You Can Eat $25

Oink oink, little piggies!! So this Thursday night was supposed to revolve all around my recent discovery of Adriano Zumbo’s dessert train at The Star (I mean, seriously, how I did not hear about this earlier, I DON’T KNOW). I had a slight planning fail where I asked the whole of my Facebook who wanted…
