Monsieur and I wanted Japanese food and discovered Sushi on Stanley randomly. It was around 5pm that day and not many restaurant on Stanley street were open, and if they were, most were empty… Apart from Sushi on Stanley.
“You taught me to never go to an empty restaurant” says Monsieur to convince me. I acknowledge that this tiny hole in the wall could actually be a good idea so here we go!
You get to choose whether you want fish, beef or chicken teriyaki. Monsieur goes for beef, I take chicken so we get to swap. AUD 19 gets you what you see above. A salad, a miso soup, beef teriyaki, sashimi, gyoza and a bowl of rice! How good value is that!?
The gyoza are good, though I prefer steamed over fried. Monsieur likes his fried food, so he’s delighted about having these beautiful gyozas!
I normally can decide whether beef or chicken is best when it comes to teriyaki meat. Most restaurants won’t bother using different seasonings. I generally prefer chicken because overcooked chicken doesn’t dry as much as beef, and poor quality beef can ruin the dish. For both meats, I can’t fault anything. The beef is delicious, and you can tell they use a nice cut.
My Chicken is tender, juicy and perfectly sweetened by their delicate teriyaki seasoning. Lovely!
The Sashimi is good, but slices are a tad too thin. I prefer watermoon’s cutting technique when it comes to Sashimi!
