Sushi is part of everyday life these days for most and there is a lot of bland, flavourless sushi around, and Chatswood has plenty of outlets to choose from. The girls at work suggested a quick lunch and I was pleased to be led up the road to Sushi Bay in Brown Street. It occupies the street level of an unassuming office block, and looked like the regular sushi train style restaurant, clean and cute. Almost all stools were full by the time we arrived which is promising and we were greeted enthusiastically by the chefs and waitresses alike - always a nice touch. With eyes glued to the food "train" we were seated and settled. No real conversation could start until the first choices were made. Smoked Eel nigiri for "B" and Avocado and Tuna rolls for "Long Legged Lolly" in her hot new happy jeans! I picked a delicate and flavoursome pair of scallop nigiri. Ohhhhh yummmmmmm, it was "all aboard the flavour express" for us! With appetites whet, we ventured on. Again, all conversation now turned to the varieties on offer, puddings, steamed dumplings wizzed past, tempting us at each turn, but we reverted to our regular favourites : Crab with a sliver of squid, egg omelette, lettuce and seaweed topped with fish roe (scrumptious), Rice cakes with finely sliced raw fish and a solid whack of wasabi, Fried chicken and avocado...to name a few. Each was incredibly fresh, the chicken rolls were still warm and crips from the fryer. Really, there is nothing like simply cooked or prepared food that is so fresh it melts in the mouth. Now, as I said, there is many a sushi house in Chatswood and some more enticing than others, so it was refreshing to have this impeccibly made food in a nice clean atmosphere which was quick and not costly! I was very surprised to see they have many outlets, and most in shopping centres (not usually known for their fresh and delicious fare!). As usual you pay by the plate, and each colour represents a pricepoint. The waitress perkily asks if we three would like separate bills? It was so easy as each of us had multi-coloured plates piled high in front of us, so she simply ticked off the colours on the bill and handed it over. Convenient yummy and quick! I can't wait to go back to try more. Hapi Eating!
