PROFILE BY BEST RESTAURANTS
The flagship restaurant of this worldly sushi establishment is not located in Japan as one might expect, but Singapore. From there, the Sushi Teis of the world import specialised ingredients from its original restaurant to bring tastebud tantalising flavours to jovial Japanese enthusiasts. The Sydney restaurant, located in Chifley Square, is light and bright. Sit at the bar where the sushi train ferries delightful little morsels past you to be snatched up by any takers or be seated at a table set with chopsticks and delicate bowls.
Jellyfish, eel, cuttlefish and cod roe are all considered very traditional delicacies to the team at Sushi Tei and they are eager for the suited up Aussies to share their passion. The lunch rush is a definite sign that they are getting the message across. The menu sports some unconventional sushi construction such as the deep-fried sushi roll with sea urchin and seafood and the rainbow dragon roll with salmon, kingfish, tuna, avocado and black caviar topped with lotus root chips and a special spice sauce. Instead of a miso soup, try a dobinmushi which is a digestive soup served in a teapot. The more predictable dishes such as the aso, a colourful platter made up of 19 individual sushi pieces, are also very popular. There are oodles of udon noodles, gyozas and tempura meals for those who prefer to stick to reliable favourites. Step outside the square a little and experience the real flavours of Japan in downtown Sydney.
