Like every normal human being, we too live very busy lives, which primarily means working most days of the week. Amidst this reality, we try to spend as much time together as possible especially during our times-off that fall on the same day.
Saturday mornings mean pancakes and coffee for breakfast, a bit of vacuuming and mopping, then off we go (Gelo goes to the gym and Kay wanders around the city). And because this is the only day that our restdays jive, we often splurge and go for a late lunch at the Sushi Train in Chancery Lane. It is one of the best places to eat in Auckland, in our opinion, because they serve a variety of sushi options which are freshly prepared, their staff are incredibly friendly and accommodating, and every plate, regardless of the colour, is $3.50 (unlike in the other branch which is located near the Viaduct where prices vary depending on the colour of the plate). On a normal day, we often end up with ten plates in a stack; however, during those rare instances wherein we are incredibly famished, the stack becomes doubled.
And to share what our enthusiasm is all about, here are some of our regular sushi choices:
Top left: Tiger Roll, bottom left: Grilled Pork Sushi, bottom right: Grilled Salmon, middle right: Grilled Scallops, top right: Grilled Beef.
Some of the “fried” food options:
Left: Takoyaki, top right: Spicy Chicken Karaage, bottom right: Calamares.
Options that we have tried only once:
And because we do not eat them often, we are unfamiliar with the names, except for the one on the top left hand corner which is the Volcano Roll.
And you can also get desserts like Creme Brulee, Tiramisu, Chocolate Mousse, and Gelatin.
The highlight of every Sushi Train visit! 🙂
So if you are ever in the city and are looking for a great sushi place, Sushi Train in Chancery Lane is a must-try.
