In recent months, Mr Munchies Sushi had become the unassuming rising star of the sushi world in Perth. I first had a taste of it when a friend took away the Sushi Platter for dinner one night and I found that I really liked them! I’d been back for the sushi ever since! I especially like the Mango Sushi Roll.
Earlier this month, I went to “Danny Bhoy” showing in Astor Theatre nearby and decided to introduce the place to some of my friends. They ended up loving the place too. (By the way if you like comedy, you have to check out Danny Bhoy – very funny guy and much less swearing compared to Russell Peters).
The place was packed when we arrived and the four of us had to squeeze into a table for two. Note that the restaurant is quite small so tables get snap up quickly during peak dinner time!
I wanted to try a different drink so I had the Awaken Aloe Vera with Wheat Grass. Took some getting use to.
- Japanese Seaweed Salad ($5.50)
- Japanese Squid Salad ($5.50)
- Agedashi Tofu ($8.50) – lightly coated and fried in a tempura sauce, this was very nice!
- Mango Chicken Roll ($9.50 small 4 pieces)
- Crunchy Spider Roll ($9 small 4 pieces)
- Create Your Own Sushi – Eel (large 8 pieces)
The Mango Chicken Roll is a seasonal sushi with chicken and prawn fritters topped with coriander, sweet chilli sauce and diced mango. I never fail to order this when I eat at Mr Muchies Sushi. I love the crunchiness of the chicken and prawn pieces combined with the thai inspired flavors of the topping.
The Crunchy Spider Roll contains deep fried soft shell crab, iceberg lettuce, cucumber topped with white sesame sauce and shallots. This was on the average side, I could not really taste the soft shell crab.
My friend put together this Create Your Own Sushi, with eel, tamago topped with tobiko and chili mayonnaise sauce. It turned out quite tasty but nothing beats the Mango Chicken Roll for me. :)
There are many more other special Sushi Rolls on offer in Mr Munchies Sushi, I found the chef to be very creative and innovative in his sushi creations. I also love the Create Your Own Sushi or Salad concept. Will definitely be back again.
