We’re tempted to say that this Bondi sushi restaurant is named both after the historic period in Japan’s history when Japan was catapulted from a collection of feudal shogunates to a modern industrial nation and the psychologist whose model of the human psyche resembled an onion. It would be neat, wouldn’t it? Meiji’s Sushi Jung is certainly all about traditional Japanese cuisine, and unwrapping the menu is like burrowing down to a collective unconscious where fresh sashimi, peppery wasabi, and delicate ginger do battle with soy sauce and daikon radish. Discover the mysteries of sushi down Sydney’s Bondi Road.
Meiji’s Sushi Jung’s menu is packed with traditional Japanese dishes and combination bento boxes, platters and the like. A treasure trove of Far Eastern delights in Sydney’s Bondi, the menu is a bewildering object of beauty, so let’s run through some of this Japanese restaurant and sushi bar’s most popular dishes. Many fans of Japanese cuisine in Sydney can’t go past golden-fried or gently steamed gyoza before they dig into a hearty bowl of teriyaki donburi, but there’s a lot more on offer from this Bondi Road kitchen.
Spicy edamame are almost mandatory when we dine at Meiji’s Sushi Jung, and from there it’s often on to a value bento for an express lunch en route to Bondi Beach or a supreme bento when there’s more time to indulge in the Japanese cuisine on offer. Of course, sushi dominates the menu at Meiji’s ranging from hand rolls to rice-inside-or-out rolls, nigiri sushi and aburi (grilled) sushi, too. You can order some of Sydney’s freshest sashimi here as well, whether from the a la carte menu, in a bento or as part of one of Meiji’s popular party sets.
