Mokoji Sushi is whipping up tasty sushi rolls and authentic Japanese cuisine in their Hawthorne based restaurant.
The eatery is decked out with booths and dining tables, as well as a well-stocked takeaway counter for lunch or dinner on the run.
The menu is laden with popular sushi, such as California and tuna rolls, as well as bespoke sushi such as their Lion King and the Mokoji.
They also create vegan friendly sushi, such as the Blue Dragon – a sushi roll laden with a potato croquet, cucumber, avocado and teriyaki sauce.
They also serve delicious sushi accompaniments such as popular soy beans, edamame.
For something a little different order a side of their King Prawns – grilled prawns lathered with mustard mayo and chilli mayo.
You can’t go wrong with sashimi, and Mokoji does it right with their raw tuna flowers.
The teri-chicken meal is worth a try, served in a bento-box style it includes teriyaki chicken with vegetables, rice, potato salad and miso soup.
If you’re an udon soup lover, Mokoji makes a killer broth, filled with tempura prawns or vegetables. It is served deconstructed so you can pour as much or as little broth in as you like.
Mokoji’s Passionfruit Ade is a must do drink – it’s a fizzy concoction served with passionfruit pulp to sweeten. The kiwi fruit one is another winner amongst local diners.
Need to know – Mojoki is BYO. Items are available to takeaway.
