I used to think that I could eat sushi every day for the rest of my life but then someone let me loose at an all you can eat Japanese restaurant. I made sure that I got more than my money's worth that day along with uncomfortable over-eaters remorse. But that was a long time ago and I've since redeveloped a full appreciation for this cuisine.
No metropolis is complete without a decent selection of sushi sources and Perth is no different. Who's to say what makes the best sushi? Maybe you like the best of the best, with accolades and awards, no costs sparred. Maybe you like the service and setting. Or perhaps cheap and cheerful does it for you. The simple sushi has a lot that sets it apart.
I love a miso soup to make me warm in the winter. I love the light saltiness of edamame. Tempura is great if I feel like a little fried something. If I'm having trouble deciding, I'll usually find my fix in a Bento box.
We get to choose between a full range of Japanese restaurants in Perth. Some of the city's highlights include Matsuri in the city, Mt Hawthorn's rightfully popular Ha-Lu, Nobu at Burswood, Hanami in Mt Lawley, The Bonsai in Northbridge, Edo for a BBQ style in Subiaco, Seizan for Karaoke in the city, Jaws and Taka outlets in the city, or my quaint favourite Tanpopo in Mt Lawley.
Locally (if you live in the Scarborough area) you cant go past Tao. Great sushi train with hot and cold offerings and also a larger menu with Japanese, Thai and Vietmanese dishes. Always a really warm welcome too and very reasonable prices
You missed out Zen in Subiaco (in the carpark behind the Dome Cafe). It's the best value top Japanese food in Perth. Hurry and try it though coz I think they are about to close for good at that location.
Hikaru Sushi next to Brookfield Place, Perth city. Always difficult to decide on which one to go for. They have over 40 flavours of sushi, ALL fresh and deliciously mouth-watering. Has got to be one of Perth's best (kept secret).They've got brown rice and black rice options too!!!! The rice bowls are to die for as well .. omg salivating as I type
