burger boy and I love Mr Munchies Sushi, we have sushi from there so often it’s almost become our second home. Saturday night was the first time that I’ve dined in at Mr Munchies and I now know why it’s always so packed.
We needed a quick dinner option before going to see Lawrence Leung at the Perth Comedy Festival and Mr Munchies was perfect. It was just a 5 minute stroll from the venue and from many past take-away experiences I knew we’d be able to get in and out within 45 minutes.
The décor was fun and cute, my mum who is a bit of a germaphobe was most impressed with the handbag hooks.
Table service was quick and friendly – I love that the staff use a special app on their smart phones to take our orders. My mum ordered the Salmon Sashimi ($14.50), I had the Teriyaki Chicken Bento Box ($14.50) and I can’t help but have the Katsu Kilpatrick Roll every time I have Mr Munchies. Even when I try to be adventurous and try different rolls, I still need my trusty Katsu Kilpatrick (pork or chicken) in the mix. So even with plenty of food we (ok maybe I) decided we could share a small Pork Katsu Kilpatrick Roll (4 pieces for $9).
As we waited for our dinner to arrive, I noticed Mr Munchies do take bookings as there were a few tables reserved. Good thing we rocked up early, as it wasn’t long before the small space was filled.
Sipping on our refillable green teas ($2.50 each), we watched sushi rolls being made in the open kitchen.
This is mum’s salmon sashimi which she enjoyed. The salmon was fresh and served with soy and shallots.
The sashimi sparked conversations about Mr Munchies Japanese fusion style which we thought was creative. I was never a huge sushi fan until Mr Munchies came along, now I crave their Katsu Kilpatrick rolls all the time.
Pork katsu, cucumber and bacon topped with cheese – takes me to foodie heaven every time.
My pink chicken teriyaki bento box was super cute…
The skin was crisp, chicken tender and there was the perfect amount of sweet teriyaki sauce. The bento box came with rice, a light spinach & cherry tomato salad, spring roll and karaage (fried chicken). The spring roll was a bit soft for my liking and there wasn’t much in it but it wasn’t the main event so I wasn’t too fazed.
What I love about Mr Munchies is the ease of dining. They have EFTPOS / PayPass facilities, you can dine in or take-away, book or walk-in and the menu caters for all from sushi to sashimi to cooked bento boxes. You don’t need to dress up but you don’t look out of place if you do – Mr Munchies is perfect for a quick casual catch-up or bite to eat.
