Sushi Express

Recommended by a sushi fanatic this place really does have excellent sushi. It's a tiny, cosy eatery that is easily missed if you do not know what to look out for. (Look for stairs heading down from the main road. It's the only one like that)

H and I walked in at 11.45am on a Sunday morning and they were just starting up. There were not many varieties on the sushi train as yet but we were warmly greeted and shown to our seats.
Our first choice was 3 tear drop shaped sushi filled with tuna and avocado. We suspect the yellow-ish sauce rolled in with the fillings are a mixed of chilli or something spicy and mayo. Yum!
Next up was this salmon and avocado rolled in tobiko. The salmon was very fresh and was of a good size.
H loved this dish. I can't comment as I don't eat oysters but he swears this is the best. It is totally different from a mornay even though it looks like one. H comments are "It's not like a normal mornay as it's not cooked / grilled till dry. The oyster is still really juicy." H suspect that the sushi master used the heat from the rice (yes, theres rice in there) and a short grilling time to maintain it's moistness that still warms up the dish. The top was drizzled with teriyaki sauce.

As we tried many dishes; all delicious. I'll post the pictures and you can judge for yourselves.

Salmon Nigri
Prawn Roll
Seared Salmon (not as good as Azuma though)
Salmon, Avocado, Spanish Onion and Ikura (salmon roe)

We were very happy with the prices as well. Lunch for the both of us costs $38, including 2 green teas, and we were stuffed full.
