I haven't baked anything for 3 weeks now and it doesn't feel right at all... I miss making entremets or multiple component tarts and I want to just zoom past exams, have my one month holiday and pack it with a good amount of chaos in the kitchen. I've got this crazy long mental to-do lists and picturing myself making Bourke Street Bakery's ginger brulee tart, hokkaido milk bread and black sesame chiffon cakes is basically what I do when I have spare thinking time. Don't drool with me, you'll be sure to see those posts coming in the near future! In the meantime, I've got a restaurant review for you in store today. Yesterday, my sister and I decided to go out for dinner for some bonding time and being in a good mood after payday, I decided to treat her for some sushi at Umi Sushi in Darling Quarter. I love Darling Quarter, there's the lights, the massive playground that had these play equipments which I know would make my younger self go out of control and just the whole lively, hip vibe of the area.
We've been to Umi Sushi 3 times already and we've always been satisfied. This time was no different... It's a sushi train restaurant but they also have extensive a la carte menus and hot pot/nabe/sukiyaki/shabu shabu and noodle menus which is why I love the place so much. (Ah and also how they have pretty coloured plates too haha). Sorry, I really should get over my laziness in bringing a proper camera instead of using iphones for restaurant reviews and embrace my food blogger ways... I'll keep trying :)
I'm not usually an eel person but my hand somehow managed to catch these. They were okay.
It's just a must for me in any sushi train. It's nothing special but it just makes me happy.
