Melbourne and sushi are made for each other

Melbourne is Australia’s culinary capital. It’s the culinary capital because the regular rules of food and drink go out the window here. Foodies and restaurant owners in Melbourne are very ready to experiment, very ready to embrace new tastes and trends and, perhaps most admirable, very ready to risk failure when it comes to their culinary endeavours. The result of all of this is a unique, refreshing environment where any kind of restaurant can thrive and any kind of cuisine is accessible. Sushi, you’ll be pleased to know, has over the years been a huge benefactor of Melbourne’s attitude towards food, thus sushi in Melbourne is some of the best you’ll find. Sushi and Melbourne are made for each other and they’re a pair worth getting excited about.

    First, what exactly is sushi?

    First thing’s first, and we think it’s wise to clear up what exactly makes sushi, well, sushi. All around the world and certainly here in Melbourne, sushi comes in all different shapes and sizes and is often confused with sashimi. So, to best understand what sushi is, it’s easier to first know what sashimi is (they’re two completely different delicacies). Sashimi involves meat – it doesn’t have to be raw and it doesn’t have to be seafood – it just has to be a small piece of meat or seafood draped over a garnish like Japanese radish. Key point: no rice is involved. Sushi, on the flip side, is anything that involves the use of vinegared sushi rice. Boom, there it is, that’s the kicker! Maki is the type that’s wrapped in seaweed, nigiri the hand-pressed variety that involves a layer of seafood and wasabi, then oshi are the compact little squares. When you’re after sushi in Melbourne, your meal is going to be on top form if you can track down a combination of all of these.

    Sushi quick, sushi slow

    Now, just one thing making Melbourne and sushi the wonderful pair that they are is that sushi can be enjoyed regardless of how fast or slow your life moves. By which mean, if you’re a fast-paced city slicker, Melbourne has sushi joints where the fresh rolls and rice are pre-packed and ready so if you’re on a quick lunch break, you can settle in quick and easy and treat yourself to little rolls of heaven in no time at all. If – and as we’re in Melbourne this is probably more likely – you’ve got a little more time to chill, then find a sushi restaurant with a big old menu or a slow and teasing conveyor, then pick and choose your sushi at will. Whichever way you’re enjoying your sushi, in Melbourne there’s no right way or wrong way, just a whole load of freshness and booming Japanese flavours.

    Melbourne, sushi and friends

    Yes, of course you can enjoy sushi in Melbourne with friends, but that’s not what we’re getting at. What we mean is that wherever in Melbourne you find sushi, chances are you’ll find other favourites of the Japanese kitchen as well. Sushi in Melbourne also means big old bowls of hot and steamy ramen, skewers of prime meat cooked to perfection on unique Japanese grills, as well curries, bento boxes and tempura. Japanese food prides itself on a level of freshness and quality of ingredients that mean it’s a healthy choice as well as a damn tasty one.
