Shira Nui, Glen Waverley
Glenny is probably more known for it’s Asian cheap feeds than a culinary destination. Yet there is one place that’s managed to outlive KFC on the Siberia strip of Springvale Road. It is Shira Nui, a modest Japanese restaurant with a master sushi artist at the helm of an open sushi bar which stages the construction of tasty parcels that will be delivered to your mouth.
Cod, Lemon Juice, Fish Roe
Grilled Salmon – a peppery, herb mixture lightly coats the red flesh
Grilled Beef – a typically Japanese salty-sweet marinade flavours the meat
Arc Shellfrish, egg yolk vinaigrette
Spicy Tuna Tartare, avocado, Fish Roe
Seared Tuna Steak
Marinated Kingfish Belly
Black Sesame Crème Brulee, Green Tea Ice Cream
I wouldn’t count on exactly the above being served the time you visit, because the fun thing about the bar is that it is a chef’s selection and you tell him when to stop the savouries (subject to dietary requirements). If only I was a bottomless pit.
4 / 5 yums!
