It been awhile since I actually walked in the city; two weeks to be exact. Lately, if you realise, the city has been oozing in desperation to get rid of its “dullsville” title and in doing so, many buildings have been developed and, WOW! I have to say, the main shopping street is starting to feel a bit hmm.. how do I say this? A bit “Melbourne-ish”? One of the newest buildings called one40william houses a new sushi cafe in a cool place. I definitely liked the makeover given to this building. Really stylish and all, but putting decors aside, I recently visited this sushi cafe in an attempt to comprehend the hype that has stirred up. This it the blog review for Iku Sushi :)!
The interior was good, but the outside dining area was nice!
Lady Boss at the counter?
Even nicer, the Popcorn Chicken Kaarage and Onion Rings at about $5 each!
The chicken Kaarage was good but a tad under fried leaving it a bit oily. But its taste was good though. I had the chicken bites with the salad drizzled with citrus ponzu and Jap mayo, BANG! However, Toraya at Subiaco still does the kill. Unfortunately the onion rings, had the same exact problem, leaving it greasy @.@! But Iku Sushi, isn’t alone, V burger does the same thing too! Too greasy too oily! Yobi, who loves grease felt disgusted after SHARING with me a serve from V-burger last year.
This can’t be all I ordered knowing that this place has a secret weapon under its sheets. Iku Sushi’s chicken cheese burger roll ditches all the clichés to try to standout as a star player.
The chicken cheeseburger roll came with spicy mayonnaise! Served piping hot, melted cheese leaked from everywhere like a real good cheese burger should. Everything looked perfect from its image. However, that all becomes an illusion when your teeth sinks into rice rolls which leave you feeling stuffed! SAD! Oily!! =X
By the end of the meal, 2 girls and 2 guys were feeling really full from the little dishes we ordered. The girls though it was the grease, the guys, well, thought it was OK. I find the roll a tad over fried while the onion rings a little too stingy on the batter and the pop corn chicken, under fried.
One thing for sure though, we were kinda douche for ordering all fried foods in a sushi cafe. Like seriously? Sushi is meant to be healthy but we came in looking for KFC. @@! Next time, fresh ones!!
