Footscray now has a schwank sushi joint in the form of Nami Sushi, just opened on Paisley Street. I love their groovy design!
There are also some really funky layered rolls, like the one above on the left, with a nice slab of salmon on top. The verdict? I really enjoyed both rolls. My only complaint is they were quite cold. I'm not sure how Sushi Sushi et al do it, but their rolls are always at a good temperature that makes the nori not too chewy and the flavours all wide awake. (Yes, yes, I know all about the other thing they found in one of the Highpoint stores' rolls that was also very much wide awake.) It's probably a hard line to walk with government food safety regulations, I'd imagine. The secret is probably fast turnover, which I think will become Nami's reality very soon.
At this stage there are tables and chairs but no specific eat-in trimmings. It would be great to have plates rather than having to eat out of the takeaway boxes. But for now, can I revert to being one of those nori roll-loving toddlers and exclaim... Nami Sushi? Nummy sushi!
