A couple of weeks ago I was lucky enough to attend a special lunch at Sushi Planet. And by special I mean, I was treated to way too many Sushi dishes for a normal human to be able to consume. I must admit, I am normally a Sushi Train / cheapo Sushi kinda gal. Paying $10 for a plate of sushi has never been my thing. But after this experience I may have been converted!
We first tried a few starters to get our appetites going for the feast ahead of us. This included the Beef Tataki and Karrage or Japanese deep fried Chicken which you can never go wrong with. The Chicken was perfectly cooked and moist, with a crispy coating. I had to stop myself from eating the whole plate as it was that mouth wateringly good. KFC eat your heart out.
Whenever I go out for Sushi I always opt for Inside Out or Topped Sushi Rolls because they are the best, so I was in my element when presented with a huge selection of Sushi Planets Topped Sushi Rolls. This included a Shrimp Roll with Mango, Shrimp Roll with Avocado and Kingfish Roll which were all delicious. My favourite though was the Aburi Salmon Roll with Avocado, Snow Peas, and Cucumber with a Miso Aioli Sauce, topped with Seared Salmon, Unagi sauce, Sesame Seeds and Salmon Roe. That sounds like a lot of components for a little Sushi Roll, but every flavour married well to make the perfect mouthful.
We also had the Sushi Planet Set which was a large plate including Salmon, Kingfish and Prawn Nigiri, Spicy Tuna Roll, Alaska Roll, Breaded Pork, Tender Chicken and Miso Salmon Skewers and Edamame Beans. The selection of skewers were a highlight. My favourite were the Miso Salmon Skewers as the Salmon was cooked to my liking and had a great Miso flavour throughout. I was also happy it included Edamame Beans as they are my weakness. I actually think I ate the whole bowl to be honest. This Sushi Planet set is the perfect option for sharing, or for one if you’re especially hungry 😛
If all of this food wasn’t enough, we were finally presented with the masterpiece that is the Super Sashimi Deluxe set. This was an assortment of Salmon, Tuna, Kingfish and Scallop Sashimi all freshly cut that morning. It tasted as fresh and beautiful as it looked.
I thoroughly enjoyed this lunch at Sushi Planet and will definitely be returning with friends one night. They have a great selection of dishes on the menu that would impress just about anyone, as they also have Vegan and Gluten Free options. The dishes are a little pricey but with great value in my opinion. Sushi Planet is a real winner and well worth a visit.
Until next time x
