We went to the Sydney Fish Markets after already having had brunch, and having made this mistake nothing really tickled our fancy.
We ended up at Peter’s Seafood’s sashimi bar. On display are pieces of seafood, sold by the kilogram and sliced to order for either takeaway or eating in on their disgusting unwiped tables. Wasabi and soy sauce incur an extra fee.
We had some kingfish sashimi ($70/kg) and toothfish sashimi ($100).
The kingfish sashimi was fresh. The cuts unfortunately not very even, and the thicker slices were much less appealing.
The toothfish sashimi was just a bad idea. Toothfish is one of my favourite fishes to eat cooked, however eating it as sashimi just doesn’t bring out the best parts of the fish. Sashimi toothfish has the same flaky texture as cooked toothfish, but instead of being good it is bad. The fish was quite chewy, and we each only had two pieces before throwing the rest away for the pigeons. Just not good.
