Best of Canberra – Sushi

By Alexandra Craig 31 March 2015 23

Exciting times for me this week. I’m filling in for the Best Of Canberra series while Bec is on holidays – lucky thing! I now have an excuse to eat all in the name of work.

Arguably one of the more popular lunches that falls into the categories of cheap, quick, easy, and semi-okay for you nutrition wise, is sushi. One of my favourites.

Growing up on the coast, 10 years ago sushi would have been considered an exotic food but now it’s everywhere and Canberra is no exception. Whether it’s grabbing a roll to go or sitting down for a feast at a sushi train, everyone seems to be on board these days.

Sushi comes in all types and all colours. White rice, brown rice, black rice, no rice, cooked tuna, raw salmon, chicken schnitzel (definitely not the most traditional sort!), eel, egg, vegetables. Pretty much anything you could want is available. I’m a brown rice cooked tuna girl myself. So tell me, Canberra: where can I find our best sushi?

What’s Your opinion?

only place for low end [ie not akiba] japanese in canberra is tasuke – one of the pioneers and still awesome. and a japanese chef, not korean… sushi is excellent, as is the rest of the menu (hadn’t known they branched out to belco – still at home base in civic interchange)

Tasuke in Belconnen Mall did good sushi, but it’s sadly gone now. Replaced by something which offers a horribly nightmarish version of the same.

Honestly, IORI is the only place I would consider in Canberra. Most of the ‘sushi’ you see around the place is pretty gross.

Hipster w*nker credentials: lived in a small fishing village on Shikoku in Japan and was mates with a guy who owned a couple of ships. Tuna and bonito sashimi straight of the boats. Very cautious about raw fish in Australia, esp Canberra.
