Avocado roll with diced octopus and salmon roe $5.80

Sushi Hon is the home to apparently the longest sushi train in a shopping centre in the southern hemisphere. Located on the fifth floor of the brand new Westfield Sydney shopping centre on Pitt street, you can simply have a quick bite from the array of bento boxes and sushi from the takeaway counter or feast on an even wider range of Japanese delights on the sushi train in the restaurant.

Menu selection is wide-ranging and includes and assortment of fresh tuna, salmon, kingfish, scallop and eel nigiri, hand rolls, mini rolls as well as some fusion items such as Ruby Roll, Salmon Castle and Blue Mountain. Items from the sushi train range from $2.80 to $6.80 per plate.

The ala carte menu includes popular starters such as agedashi tofu, seaweed salad, tempura donburi such as chicken katsu don, udon, and special sets.

We start our meal with an array of sushi and sashimi which showcases the freshest of seafood on offer in Sydney. An item not on the menu on the day is the avocado roll with diced octopus and salmon roe. Each morsel is a delightful taste and textural sensation where chewy octopus and silky avocado is mixed with the delicate bursting flavours of the salmon roe.

Blue Mountain $6.80

Blue Mountain $6.80

Blue Mountain is blow-torched salmon and scallop topped with a dallop of avocado mash and sprinkling of tobiko. The freshness of the salmon and scallop is enhanced by the charred flavours from the blow-torch.

Salmon roll $5.80

Jumping prawn roll $5.80

Another fusion delight is the jumping prawn roll where cooked prawns sitting on a rice roll is topped with cheese. This dish is certainly a little different from the usual nigiri plates on offer in other sushi bars.

Gold butterfly $6.80

Gold butterfly $6.80

Gold butterfly is avocado rice rolls topped with blow-torched scallops and garnished with deep-fried spring onions. The scallops are so fresh they could stand alone even without the more intense taste of the spring onions.

Mixed sashimi $13.00

Mixed sashimi $13.00

Living in a seafood paradise like Sydney has somehow made Sydneysiders take seafood freshness for granted and why shouldn’t we? A plate of tuna and salmon sashimi topped with tobiko and garnished with daikon, radish, sliced cucumber in a soy and Ponzu sauce needed no wasabi on the side.

Sashimi cannot be any fresher unless you take a bite off a live fish straight from the ocean.

Fruit and red bean jelly $8.00

Fruit and red bean jelly $8.00

A dessert of fruit and red bean jelly is refreshing where slices of kiwi fruit is encased in the silky red bean jelly with slices of orange and strawberries. I love sushi and sashimi because it is light, healthy and most importantly for shoppers here in Westfield Sydney, a quick pit-stop to make up for more shopping time.

As you walk along the corridor to the entrance of Sushi Hon, rows of takeaway sushi boxes are on display. The longest sushi train in a shopping centre is inconspicuously hidden behind the sushi counter. Book a table along the train and feast on each delectable plate as it tantalisingly pass in front of your eyes.

We were told by Mr BK Baek, the manager of Sushi Hon that menu selections on the sushi train change each month to take advantage of the wide range of fresh seafood in Sydney to offer customers variety and choice.

    I always find sushi and sashimi aesthetically pleasing, but I can’t eat the stuff! I guess my favourite would have to be a vegetarian roll? I’m just not fond of fish :|

    • Chopinand says:

      Hi JasmyneTea, perhaps an easier way is to try grilled fish rather than diving straight into the raw stuff. Thinking that fish is healthy and good for you might be another inducement :)

    Great photography & concise feature …. nice to know a blogger investing time enlightening us with FINE posts on FOOD !!! Thanks :-)

  3. The sushi here look definitely spectacular!

  4. Carolyn Jung says:

    The sushi is really creative there. You wouldn’t expect that necessarily with a place that does conveyor-belt sushi like that. Just goes to show that you can’t judge a train by its size. ;)

    • Chopinand says:

      Hi Carolyn, this new food hall in Westfield Sydney is emphasizing quality and attracting strong food brands as a point of difference to other food halls in the city.

  5. I want to be there right now… looks so delicious!!! FRESH!

  6. Lovely foodporn photos! Those sparkling roe jewels are very enticing and I’ve also been pretty impressed by the quality of Sushi Hon. Favourite dish? Can’t go past lightly seared or tempura scallop. So. good.

  7. The sushi looks pretty good! I walked past this but didn’t realise that it was so long or that the sushi was that good! :)

  8. tigerfish says:

    lion, dragon, now even butterfly…seems that sushi rolls have lots of fancy names these days! :D …..

  9. These pictures are amazing! Everything looks so good!

  10. Some of them sure do have colourful names. The golden butterfly looks right up my alley. I’ll keep this in my mind when the next sushi craving hits :)

  11. Chopinand says:

    Hi Dumpling Girl, the golden butterfly was good but I think they could lose the deep-fried spring onions as garnish as it was a little overpowering.

  12. The sushi looks fresh and well presented. Drooling…

  13. Juliana says:

    Wow, every piece of sushi is a somehow an edible art…they look so yummie and great combination of very fresh and tasty ingredients. The pictures are very inviting. Have a wonderful week and thanks for sharing such a delicious meal :-)

  14. Faith says:

    Looks like this place has a really great menu! The presentation is gorgeous and that avocado roll sounds particularly delicious!

  15. I totally love sushi and sashimi, and I often make it myself. My personal favorites are fresh and rather simple things, but sushi is always fresh, and often simple. A nice shiitake or crab nori roll would be perfect. And I love everything with octopus! :D

  16. Great review and stunning photography! I loooove sushi… guess what I want for dinner now? ;)

    New to your blog; happy I found you!

    The food there looks amazing! I love any sushi that is blow torched, it gives it such a great flavour.

  18. SK says:

    The Blue Mountain (mmmm . . seared) looks divine!

  19. The Blue Mountain looks like a dream…! Loving new takes on sushi train dishes :)
