sushi rio - Sydney

We were thinking of a lunching spot with my parnter's little cousin and we decided on Japanese cuisine. Sushi? Ramen? Jap food - other? Ahh ... life leaves us with so many decision-making points.

At the end of a long painful discussion, we decided on Sushi Rio, a sushi train with delicious, fresh, awesome sushi. To make it even better, the moment we sat down, we saw a sign going round and round and round advertising that all sushi was just $3!!! Score!

Sushi Rio

We ate sushi a-many. So much sushi until all three of us were fully stuffed and clutching our stomachs out of the store. And - the total bill was less than $60!

We got a vast array of sushis. The salmon was fresh. The eel was tasty (according to my partner and his cousin). The scallop was super super awesome - fresh and blow-torched. The surf-clam salad sushi was nicely mayoed and cold and fresh. And who can forget the soft-shell crab? It was FRESH - freshly deep fried, crunchy and surrounded by avocado, cucumber, lettuce, mayo ... Mmmm... YUM :)

Everything looks yum! When I went though, it wasn't so good, maybe due to the fact that it was quite late.
