Sushi Suma

Back to Sydney, back to my favorite Japanese eateries in town! Last weekend despite the heating up weather we went to one of local’s favorite Japanese restaurants in Surry Hills.

Sushi Suma is a well-known Japanese resto for its fresh and outstanding sushi yet has an affordable price. This relatively small and normally packed dining room has opened a new waiting room upstairs to cope with the lining up folks. We tried to book the table by phone but unfortunately they don’t take reservation anymore, somehow we managed to get there before 6.30 to avoid the 30 minutes queuing as normally happened between 6.30-8.00 on the weekend.

We ordered a mix of Sushi and Tempura set for $16.50 and a Teriyaki set with the same price. Most of the menus come with a delicious agedashi tofu, a really soft tofu that melts inside your mouth.

My Sushi set served with a small bowl of soy sauce and, of course, the nostril-hitter wasabi on the side. I don’t take much wasabi though but never missed this horseradish mustard mixed with soy sauce to make my sushi just perfect!

The tempura set was so crunchy yet not too greasy so you won’t get the guilty feeling for eating that deep fried menu ;-)

Last menu served was Teriyaki set, the very tender and juicy beef sautéed in a rich teriyaki sauce. If you are Teriyaki lovers, you will be back to this restaurant for sure.
