Occasionally we’d look up from our fishy feast and spot the fish in the tank staring right at us. I felt a bit guilty, but not guilty enough to stop eating. In fact between us we polished off FOURTEEN plates of sushi. Sorry fish, but you were really tasty.
Whenever I’ve walked past Umi Kaiten-Zushi there has been a line out the door, but this was our lucky night as it seems people are less likely to queue for food when it’s bucketing down outside. I hope this theory rings true as I’m attempting to visit Jamie’s Italian tonight where I’ve heard tales of someone waiting TWO HOURS to get a table.
The billboard outside Umi's entrance boats over 100 different types of sushi. With an offer like that how could we resist?
Let the feasting begin...
|Fresh salmon topped with Seaweed Salad - a nice way to kick things off.|
|Fresh salmon topped with fish roe - fancy|
|Cooked Tuna Ship - my favourite (cos I have boring Aussie tastes perhaps)?|
|Money Bag type things stuffed with plump, juicy prawns|
|Drumroll - ROAST PORK BELLY roll. A sushi revelation I tell you.|
|No idea what this is...but it was tasty.|
|Salmon Nigiri - that has had the blowtorch treatment.|
|Tuna Nigiri with sesame seeds|
|This is what happens when you can't use chopsticks...wah, my sushi! I ate it anyway though.|
|Eel Nigiri - don't knock it til you've tried it as it's damn tasty.|
|Edamame - nice.|
|Some soft of blow-torched fish - mystery fish sushi.|
|Soft Shell Crab handroll - really really good, espeicaly as it was freshly made to order.|
|Crab Claw - another favourite.|
|Some sort of flan type dessert - couldn't quite pick out the flavour, not caramel though (boo).|
We had a discount voucher for 25% off our meal (or $20 - whichever was the smaller amount) so our meal ended up costing $40 which is fairly good for two people considering the amount of food we ate. Without the voucher it would've been $60 - still not bad really, especially as we ate quite a bit of fresh salmon and other not so cheap plates.
