There’s a few Momoco Sushi joints scattered about Melbourne, here in Hawthorn on Power Street, right at the junction with Lynch Street and round the corner from Hawthorn station, plus others in Preston, Heidelberg, and South Yarra. Each of these fantastic Japanese restaurants and sushi bars are dedicated to making use of only top quality organic ingredients, balancing Japanese imports and locally-sourced Australian ingredients. This all means an a la carte menu and chef’s specials that are often refreshed that both keep customers coming back time and again. Start with pan-fried chicken or pork gyoza and vegetarian agedashi tofu, make a beeline for sushi rolls and sashimi, or tuck into bento boxes consisting of a number of authentic options. Recommended noodle dishes include the porterhouse steak and vegetables in a sukiyaki soup and donburi choices such as the yaki han fried rice with smoky eel. There’s plenty more to choose from here at Momoco Sushi Hawthorn.
Sushi and sashimi was fantastic. Very fresh. Some of the dishes such as the grilled eggplant and mixed vegetables were a little too salty. Overall yummy food and lovely service.
Momoco is my favourite place in Hawthorn. Great food at a relatively low price. I could eat dozens of their Gyoza's both pork and chicken.
The service was excellent and the food was delicious. The entre's of Gyoza and Lotus chips were particularly good. I would recommend Momoco for a great lunch or dinner.
The staff was really friendly and the food wasn't that bad.
