Little Tokyo Sushi Bar, North Sydney (8th December 2011)

After several failed attempts to catch up for our regular Thursday girls' lunch with Julie-Ann due to our crazy workloads, we finally caught up today for lunch and headed to Little Tokyo Sushi Bar located at the food court in Greenwood Plaza. Neither of us girls have been to this sushi place in North Sydney before - it looked pretty authentic so the food should be good.

It was still empty when we arrived at 12pm but the seats around the sushi train very quickly filled up within the next ten minutes. We were promptly seated and ordered ourselves a mug of green tea each to sip on as we decided on what sushi to have. The sushi were prepared right in front of us by the Japanese staff who wore plastic mouth guards similar to the ones seen worn by the kitchen staff at Chefs Gallery (for hygiene reasons). With a 2-tier sushi train, Little Tokyo has a decent selection, with a mix of sushi, sashimi and deep fried snacks to choose from. Hot meals are not served in-house but you can purchase takeaway hot meals from the smorgasbord.

As we shared our sushi, we caught up with the events in our lives, chatting about our holiday plans and upcoming travels. Wow, only another 2 weeks till Christmas and I'm glad Jono and I have got all our Christmas gifts for the family sorted. Julie-Ann still hasn't got around Christmas shopping yet - eek!


We sampled around 6 plates of food (plates range between $2.60 - $5.60 each and generally 2 pieces per plate) including a salmon sashimi and an assortment of other sushi. They have a monster-sized sushi we nicknamed 'The Bomb' because it was too big to even put a plastic casing over the plate to cover the sushi - it had a mix of tuna, salmon and possible teriyaki chicken with cream cheese, cucumber and lettuce. One piece of this is equivalent to two normal sized sushi! We also tried their seaweed sushi, a first for me as I've always avoided picking this whenever I'm at a sushi train. I had always thought it would be slimy and fishy but it tasted really nice, a bit of crunch and somewhat sweet. I think I may have found a new favourite sushi now - yum! Overall, I would say that the sushi served here is pretty good and reasonably priced, costing us around $28 all up. Boy is it good to have finally found a decent sushi place nearby the office. Andy's Sushi permanently struck off my list (except for their chicken noodle soup)!
