About The Modern Eatery - Fremantle
In and around Perth and Fremantle, there’s two restaurants confidently titled The House of Aburi Sushi. Here at The Modern Eatery on the corner of central Fremantle’s High Street and Queen Street, the aburi style of Japanese sushi is the specialty. Aburi sushi is nigiri sushi – a hand-pressed parcel of rice with a topping – in which some or all of the ingredients have been blowtorch-grilled. There are plenty of other classic and contemporary Japanese dishes propping up this central offering; so many in fact that the Modern Eatery provides a handy glossary of culinary terms to guide you through the extensive menu!

Aburi – a method of lightly flame searing.
The Modern Eatery’s selection of aburi sashimi is essential for any Perth and Fremantle connoisseur of Japanese cuisine. Each serving comes with five pieces, and you can choose from New Zealand king salmon with miso sauce, West Australian bigeye tuna with onion sauce, Hokkaido hotate (scallops) with butter and soy, the hamachi with South Australian Hiramasa kingfish, avocado sauce and ponzu dressing, or the sweet shrimp with the restaurant’s signature aburi sauce. Can’t decide? Go for one of the sashimi combos.
Nigiri – a type of sushi consisting of a small ball of rice topped with raw fish or other seafood.
There’s much, much more on The Modern Eatery’s menu. At the time of writing, this clean-lined Fremantle restaurant in the High Street Arcade was offering its special spring menu conforming to a broader Asian and even Australian fusion template – vegetable and shrimp curry with cream cheese wrapped in wonton skins, bowls of vegetarian cheesy tofu tempura with egg, spring onion and enoki mushroom, the ‘Chasing Sunset’ roll with salmon, egg, cucumber, sweet potato fries, spring onion and garlic mayo, and kakiage, assorted vegetables and fish lightly tempura-battered and served with a dollop of garlic mayo. A fantastic place for food lovers and unmissable for fans of Asian and Japanese food in Perth and further afield, The Modern Eatery deserves an advance reservation.
Miso – paste made from fermented soybeans widely used in Japanese cookery.

Food and service was amazing. Would definitely go back again. We shared sushi between 6 of us and it worked out to be quite reasonably priced.
