Sushi is a staple in the Sydney diet. Whether it be a California roll that's too big for your mouth or a plate of sashimi doused in wasabi, Sushi is everywhere in the harbour city. So how the hell do you choose one chicken sushi from another? It's a good question with one simple answer, Sushi Express.
Hidden in the back streets of Bondi Junction, down a flight of stairs, under a gym, is the last great dynasty yet to be completely discovered, lies Sushi Express. Run by no more than five chefs, the cute little bar covers all your favourites. The best however, is their chicken sushi. A thinly cut piece of crispy schnitzel draped in Japanese mayonnaise, some kind of black unidentified sauce (just go with it) and topped with a tiny bit of crispy onion. It's the holy grail of sushi. At only $2.50 per plate, it's hard to pass up.
I don't care who you are, if you have something against eating chicken at a sushi bar you clearly haven't lived. Seafood is a big part of the delicacy but by no means should it dictate your choices. Many great cultural dishes have been slightly added to, allowing them to be a little more "western". I personally don't have a problem with it. Without it, we'd miss popular favourites like Butter Chicken Curry. Fusion is the future of food. Why not embrace it? If you don't trust me, then surely you'd put your faith in Guy Sebastian. He likes it too.
Despite its hidden location, it's a very friendly place. When you walk in, they will always say "hello" with a warm smile. Leaving is just as good, they never fail to say "sankyou".
