A new sushi train opened in Bondi Junction. Of course I was determined to take it for a test-run. It turns out, Sushi Rio Bondi Junction is my new favourite place for sushi in addition to Sushi Sushi in Pyrmont. I even went and used up all the credit I had accumulated on my Sushi Train member card as I no longer needed to go there anymore as I will be coming to Sushi Rio for all future Bondi Junction sushi fixes.
The sushi here is astoundingly fresh, made right in front of you by a Japanese chef who knows what he's doing. Lots of friendly wait staff for a fair price of $3.50 per plate. Needless to say, given it has risen to one of my favourite sushi places, all the following dishes were fantastic. You can tell from the photos of the glistening seafood how fresh everything was.
|Grilled Spicy Salmon|
|Unatama (grilled eel and egg)|
|Soft Shell Crab|
On a side note, I think it's a good idea to have every single plate in a sushi train type restaurant to be of all the same price. I think it takes something away from the dining experience when you're constantly looking at the colour of the plates coming around, then lifting your head to check the prices that each colour plate corresponds to in the middle of your meal.
Yay for Sushi Rio opening up at Bondi Junction. Please don't ever close.
