Did someone say $3 sushi plates?
Rokujuni sits at one of the entrances to Hurstville Westfield - which has been recently revamped and is worth checking out. It certainly came to the rescue when I was looking for a quick, light lunch. Not only did I enjoy some delicate oriental flavours but I also scored myself a super budget-friendly feed.
Get this, all plates off the sushi train here are only $3.00 each. The only exception are the gold plates which are $7.30 each. This differs from other sushi trains I've visited in which there is more variety in price across the dishes. The knowledge that I can get $3.00 sushi plates every day here will definitely be luring me back.
The restaurant is contemporary and dimly lit, giving it a much cosier ambience than the stark brightness of the Westfield hallways. I liked the photo wall. Different frames hold images portraying different aspects of Japanese culture. It's nice to get a taste of this as well as the cuisine.
I pulled one of my favourites off the sushi train - Tamagoyaki egg sushi. I love the subtle sweetness of this, especially when it meets with the 'umami' of soy sauce. I also got a plate of small, bite-size chicken katsu and cucumber sushi pieces. More Japanese flavour was infused by the sesame seeds.
These two dishes left me satisfied and only cost a total of $6. It was great to enjoy the luxury of no wait together with a comfortable sit down while enjoying these fresh Japanese goodies. The friendly, attentive staff also deserve a mention.
