Win tickets to see Jiro Dreams of Sushi, a film about Tokyo’s famous sushi chef


I have four double passes to give away to Jiro Dreams of Sushi, a film about Tokyo’s most famous sushi chef’s life and journey. To enter simply leave a comment here, on my facebook page or tweet me your all-time favourite Japanese restaurant by Sunday 20/5/12. Competition open to Perth, Brisbane, Sydney, Canberra and Adelaide foodie cravings readers.

Jiro Dreams of Sushi is the story of 85 year-old sushi chef, considered by many to be the world’s greatest sushi chef. He owns Sukiyabashi Jiro, a 10-seat, sushi-only restaurant located in a Tokyo subway station despite its humble appearances, it is the first restaurant of its kind to be awarded a prestigious 3 star Michelin review, and sushi lovers from around the globe make repeated pilgrimage, calling months in advance and shelling out top dollar for a coveted seat at Jiro’s sushi bar. At the heart of this story is Jiro’s relationship with his eldest son Yoshikazu, the worthy heir to Jiro’s legacy, who is unable to live up to his full potential in his father’s shadow.

The double passes are valid at Cinema Paradiso (Perth), Chauvel Cinema (Sydney), Greater Union Manuka (Canberra), Palace Centro (Brisbane) and Palace Nova Eastend (Adelaide).

Winners will be drawn at random and announced Monday 21/5/12. Good luck!


About Author

I have foodie cravings all the time and sometimes at very odd hours, hence the name of this food blog, where I share my love for food and appliances that save me time in the kitchen. I also own Crust Mount Lawley with my burger eating half burger boy and am a mum to two girls - junior burger and baby cravings.

    This is a great tribute to living legend Jiro. I will share the contest with ma friends on ma Facebook page.
  2. My fav used to be Tsunami in Mosman Park, but I do have to admit I really loved my recent visit to Nobu even if that is a bit mainstream! For my currently favourite I would have to say it's Ha-lu. I love the izakaya style eating and their olsen style poached egg and toro dish is to die for!
    • I can't believe I haven't been to Tsunami - you're the second foodie to say it's one of your favs in this comp. Ha-lu is my all-time fav for dinner :) thanks for entering my comp and congrats on winning a double pass to see Jiro Dreams of Sushi Martine!
  3. I don't know if i have an all time favourite. i love the casual vibes of Jun, the fun of teppanyaki and the fresh, hole in the wall places in Japan!
    • Jun is my fav casual Perth Japanese restaurant too - so worth the 15min walk from my work! Japan was where I had eel for the first time, burger boy & I really over-ate there :) So yep agreed love all the eateries there too. Thanks for entering and congrats on winning a double pass to Jiro Dreams of Sushi!
  4. Now this is one interesting film! Not only I am a lover of sushi, but I am at awe over the cult status of Jiro.
