Try Australia's most expensive sushi

18 Jun 2019

Melbourne sushi house, Sushi Jiro, is celebrating in a big, or should we say expensive, way this International Sushi Day.

Launching on 18 June across its Chadstone QV, Box Hill Central and The Glen locations, Sushi Jiro has created two limited edition and exclusive nigiri that will make you see dollar signs with the dish costing a steep $128 for the two pieces.

Although they may come with a hefty price tag, the ingredients and flavour profiles the pieces have are worth every penny. Both pieces will be created using gold sushi rice, or, sushi rice that has been mixed with edible 18 carat gold.

The first piece of nigiri is made using Otoro flown in from the famous Toyosu Market in Japan. It will be matched with Tasmanian Long Spine Purple Sea Urchin and topped with Oscietra Beluga Caviar.

The second, but by no means lesser, nigiri is topped with Hidagyu Beef from Japan, Marron from Western Australia and sprinkled with shaved black truffled foraged from Victoria. Hidagyu (or Hida beef) is sourced from Takayama in Japan and is from the Wagyu family. The dish will also be served with a shot of Maboroshi no Taki Gold sake to compliment this luxurious dish.

If you ever felt like being that little bit more extra, International Sushi Day is your chance! Australia’s Most Expensive Sushi will be able to be enjoyed at Tuesday 18 June until Sunday 14 July.

Sushi Jiro at The Glen is located in the Food Gallery on Ground Floor.
