I’ve never been to Japan so I won’t claim to know what I’m talking about, but I will say that Akira Sushi in Bowral makes some damn tasty Japanese food. I got the tip off about this little gem when some dear friends of mine mentioned they were going out to eat some delicious sushi (in the Highlands? Say whaat?). I promptly invited myself along to third wheel their date night and I have no regrets.The takeaway selection is great if you’re on the run, but I would recommend eating in and having yourself a feast among the cute origami paper styled wallpaper.
The sushi rolls are enormous and made fresh to order (like seriously, you can share these). The ramen and broths are piping hot and hearty and none of that all-noodle-no-goodstuff kind of nonsense from food courts. And if it’s just too difficult to decide, have yourself a Bento box! If you’re lucky you’ll catch a glimpse of their 2:30pm staff meal and wonder why they don’t put THAT on the menu too. Go for gyoza udon or the grilled salmon roll.
Where: Shop 6, 328 Bong Bong Street, Bowral (behind Gloria Jeans Coffee).
When: Monday – Saturday 10:30am – 9:00pm, Sunday 10:30am – 6:00pm.
