As a Sydney CBD habitue, I feel a bit lost outside of my preferred environment. So, a stint in the civilised wilds of North Sydney meant a change of pace and a longer commute. And a chance to discover the lunch spots of the northern metropolis.
Inside Greenwood Plaza (opposite the train station), is a clean and modern food court. There's a choice of some good cafes and takeaway outlets, and (drumroll) the Little Tokyo Sushi Bar. There is a takeaway counter at the front, and a well-stocked sushi train at the back.
The staff are friendly and efficient, and the sushi chefs are great to watch as they roll and cut the sushi treats. We ate at the sushi train, and the sushi and sashimi was very fresh, nicely prepared, and best of all, they kept it coming - nothing worse than a sparse sushi train.
Standout dishes included the grilled salmon sushi, salmon sashimi, and the crab claws (some of the better ones I've had, because it was all crab, not some scungey prawny filler).
The dishes are reasonably priced, with only 3 price points ($2.80, $3.40 and $4.50). As usual, most of the dishes we had were the pricey black-plated ones, but it was worth it.
I still have another week in Nth Sydney and am looking forward to trying some of the other places. Thanks for your recommendations.
Travelling across the Harbour Bridge is a bit of a novelty for me, hence the picture-taking from the taxi back to the city.
