These are upside down – it doesn’t so the fillings or size of the rolls justice. Three of these big boys for $7. The purple rice has avocado and salmon – I highly recommend the purple rice. The spicy tuna was great fun, on the spicy side but not too hot, just tasty. The brown rice held chicken avocado. It was a little dry.
I’ve also heard that Akasaka sushi, two doors down, is the pick of the two – I will have to try them soon and get back to you. I was pretty happy with Arima – can’t wait to try somewhere that is even better!
Sushiman chicken teriyaki avocado
Sushiman in Balmain has both fantastic reviews and a loyal following. It’s busy. There’s so many sushi places on Darling St, in Rozelle and Balmain. For some reason, this place blows everywhere else out of the water. I can’t unequivocally tell you why this is, as I haven’t tried any of the other places. I have too many other foods to eat sushi.
But – Sushiman sushi is definitely tasty! The servings are generous for an eat in restaurant. The sushi falls apart easily and has a great filling to rice ratio. Check it out, and check out the other sushi establishments. Let me know if there are any better on Darling Street, and I’ll try to check them out!
Momiji Udon and Sushi
Momiji is a shop front in the food hall downstairs from Conveni8, which is behind the Town Hall Woolworths. I bought a plain udon soup, miso and mixed sushi box for around $8.50 one lunch time. Good value, tasty sushi. They also make some other good dishes.
Roll & Roll has two locations in the City centre. I have only visited the Bank St premises. It’s opposite Australian Pizza House (oh the pizza-filled memories…). Have you visited before?
Roll & Roll make their sushi as you wait. They specialise in scrumptious (albeit more expensive than your usual) “inside out” style rolls – think Californian but with other flavour combinations. They come in four or eight piece sets. Luckily the four piece sets are pretty much half the price of the eight piece sets, so it’s easy to get four of one and four of the other. I bought the Dragon roll (4 pieces @ $4.00) which is comprised of an eel and white wine sauce, eel, cream cheese and cucumber. I also had the Caterpillar roll (same price) but can’t remember the ingredients – salmon, fish roe, avocado – you get the picture! A touch of wasabi and a little soy sauce and you have umami.
I have to make the call and say that, while expensive, I think this is probably the best tasting and most adventurous sushi you are likely to find in Adelaide. Disagree? Tell me what you like. If I haven’t tried it, I’m always up for new food adventures!

Roll & Roll’s reviews:
For dessert, I couldn’t go past Chatime. What’s your favourite flavour combination from Chatime? I have had the Peach QQ with coconut jelly before. This time I had the Matcha Latte with grape jelly. I love fruit flavoured jelly though my favourite bubble tea addition is still chocolate pudding, something I’ve only ever had in the China Town in Melbourne (ok that’s ONE thing they have over us!) I also love Chatime in general. It’s cute, with a fantastic range of drinks. Of course, prices are higher as well. $5.20 for the regular in this case, including 50 cent add-on for grape jelly.
I got this with half sugar and it was perfect. I love how it’s half green and half white when they serve it. I love the grape hubba bubba taste of the jelly. It’s perfect.
