I love writing, art, music, food, finance, hanging out with my favourites & being a productive night owl.

If you go to UNSW, or if you're ever just around the Kingsford area and feel like some Japanese and Korean fusion you must try Pinocchio Sushi. I've been meaning to write an article about this restaurant for a good while now. I've received consistently delicious food and great service for a long time perhaps two years now here.

The first compliment I will give is about the sheer value for money obtained from eating here. If you're hungry and in the area - come here, because for about $12 you can order a complete meal. You might need to roll out of there.

If you order a set, you receive kimchi and potatoes. I absolutely adore this little starter and look forward to it every time.

Depicted above is some hot and fresh miso soup. As you can see in the picture, it is literally steaming.

This is the Korean spicy pork. It has onions and a delectable sauce, while the pork itself is very tender and soft. Also, if you notice the rice has beautiful spices in it. They make it edible as a dish on its own if you don't like mixing your main with rice, or if you don't usually like rice at all like me.

I don't quite remember which exact sushi rolls these were, but this was another affordable and delicious meal. I think that most of them were tuna rolls. The seaweed salad is also served with sashimi.

The Green Tea Ice-cream is beautiful here. For a more detailed description of it, click here.

There is a variety of set menu dishes available but my favourite used to be with sushi, sashimi, udon and dumplings. My current favourite is the set menu with Korean spicy pork, rice, sushi, sashimi and miso soup. A similar one with Korean barbeque beef is also delicious and available, for easily under $15. Why would I order this, instead of a bento box, you might ask?

Well, at Pinocchio, the bento boxes are big enough to share with someone. For under $20 you can get something which can feed two adults quite comfortably. This is what I mean about value for money.

Overall, I definitely recommend coming to Pinocchio Sushi if you're looking for a wonderful and inexpensive meal in the eastern suburbs.
