When I head to Sydney, I leave it to my sister or cousin to decide where to eat. They always try different cuisines, they know all the new places and they know what I like, so I had no problems when they took me to Sushi Tei in the city.
They have huge photo books for the menu, it almost felt my Mum was going to read me a bed time story to make me hungry.
Sushi Sashimi combination plate – tuna, snapper, kingfish, salmon and octopus sashimi, snapper, tuna, salmon, kingfish, scallop, eel, flying fish roe and salmon roe sushi and mini california maki($45.00). Fresh tantalising sashimi and sushi rolls which were served on a huge plate.
Going through the plate one piece at a time.
I loved their pickled ginger and they have it on the table so you can have as much as you’d like.
Soft shell crab temaki ($6.00). I didn’t taste this hand roll *dirty look at my sister* but it looked fantastic.
Chashu tonkotsu ramen with sliced roast pork (pork-based or soy sauce-based) ($15.00) – its no Ippudo but it is better than anything we have here in Canberra.
Jo Una Ju premium eel on rice ($22.00) Juicy grilled eel on top of a bed of hot rice.
I don’t think I tried enough food to judge if I loved it enough to brave the terrible traffic and lack of parking in the area but I am definitely wiling to come back again and try more from their menu if someone else drives me.
