I had a serious hankering for sushi over Easter and decided to revisit the awesome Aisuru Sushi and their wicked modern take on the humble but always irresistible sushi roll. I love the bustling yet efficient atmosphere this corner restaurant exudes and always wonder how those sushi chefs resist taking a sneaky bite or two out of their beautiful and tasty creations. I’m pretty sure if I was a sushi chef I’d have a pretty bad case of one-for-you-and-one-for-me!
To kick us off we ordered the tempura Wagyu beef and my absolute must, agedashi tofu. I swear I could live off agedashi tofu alone, but sadly this one was not quite as good as the equivalent dishes found at Kiri or Satsuki restaurant. The main event was our medley of sushi rolls, the Black Velvet, Plumfower, Spider and Kirika. They all came out beautifully presented, and Jinn had to be very quick-smart taking those photos as those pieces of sushi disappeared pretty quickly! The absolute standout was the Plumflower roll, with its delicately flavoured plum sauce and oh-so-scrumptious omelette wrapped around some yummy chicken, perfectly cooked rice and fragrant nori. I could devour one right now!
All up, Aisuru Sushi is a great addition to the growing population of William St restaurants, and offers something very different, in both vibe and cuisine – I certainly will be coming back (particularly for that Plumflower roll!).
