Manpuku, Tea Tee Plaza, Modbury, AdelaideIf you think 'Adelaide Sushi', I'm guessing Genki Roll or Sushi Train would normally come up in your mind. That's not to say that other vendors aren't good, but for consistency, it's pretty hard to beat those two. Enter Manpuku....the shop has been here for a while, it was actually a Genki Roll a few years back.
The chef at Manpuku (Kasai-San) was one of the original chefs at Himeji and Genki and has now taken over the premises with his wife and his sons. So if you've ever eaten at Genki, or Genki Roll in the past 15 years or so, chances are, you've had sushi made by Kasai-San.

On this particular day - it was 12pm, and Kasai-San and his 2 sons were busily making everyone's favourite: Aburi Salmon. There were about 4 others waiting, but each were happy waiting and watching the art of Sushi making right before their eyes. I could also see that the people who were waiting were regulars and chatting with Kasai-San as he was flame grilling the Salmon. Always a good sign to see regulars.
There's nothing much I can fault with the sushi I have at Manpuku. Many other sushi places sometimes have rice that is too sweet, or too hard. The countless times I've had from Manpuku it has always been faultless. If you're ever in Tea Tree Plaza, I'd highly recommend visiting Manpuku and getting the Aburi Salmon.
