Sushi Wow, Parramatta

I've often wanted to duck into Sushi Wow in Parramatta's Church Street Mall, but the lure of my beloved Sushi Bay at the monolithic Westfield is just too hard to resist. Recently though I bit the bullet and cheated on Sushi Bay....and I'm kinda glad I did as Sushi Wow is really...WOW!

The restaurant is quite dark and "moody" but the food is anything but.  There were so many enticing plates of sushi to choose from, but as I'd just returned from a huge food blogger conference in Adelaide (aka eating weekend) I limited myself to four plates (though I'm sure I could've squeezed in five if I REALLY tried).

The Dragon Roll was topped with the largest piece of eel that I've ever seen adorning a sushi roll. The eel was charred perfectly and sweet from a dousing in a teriyaki style sauce, and the addition of cream cheese in the filling gives the whole morsel a lovely creamy texture.  Of course I cannot go past a good old Tuna Roll - these were great. You can go wrong with a dollop of creamy tuna encased in a rice + seaweed blanket.

Sushi Wow also had quite a few styles of sushi role that I've not seen elsewhere like the simple and fresh tasting Salmon with Seaweed Salad. I loved the slither of orange that came with this plate - dinner and dessert all in one go.  The Tuna Roll topped with a Cheesy Salmon Aburi was FANTASTIC. The tuna was soft and creamy, and the salmon had that lovely charred flavour that can only come from a Japanese restaurant blowtorch (tastes better than it sounds, I promise)!

Sushi Wow is at  188 Church Street, Parramatta (in the Church Street Mall). I'll be back for sure - especially to try their wonderful looking plate of Miso Eggplant (I did go back to try the Miso Eggplant and it's AMAZING, though impossible to eat with chopsticks).
