The iconic neon cat with the letters sprawled “TME” across it. Located on the busy Swan Street in Richmond. The Modern Eatery, house of Aburi. We love everything and anything Japanese so we were super duper excited to check it out with One Piece Left.
The assorted sashimi included salmon, kingfish and tuna, so the usual fish you’d expect to see when you get sashimi. Unfortunately the fish didn’t taste super fresh and was quite fishy.
Assorted Sashimi – $22
The gyozas were juicy but it didn’t have the oomph flavour wise.
Kurogi Gyoza – $14
Pork gyoza with uma-miso, spring onion, chilli
The creamy croquette and the crumbed Camembert were AWESOME SAUCE. The creamy croquette was super creamy. The crumbed Camembert was frigging AMAZEBALLS! Slightly fried, all melted and smooth on the inside, I was in cheesy heaven.
We got a few of the Kitty K’s rolls but found them to be quite heavy. They were pretty average and weren’t mind blowing which was a shame.
The Aburi chashu bowl was frigging delish. The chashu fell apart and was so soft and tender. The whole bowl just tasted oh so awesome.
Aburi Chashu Bowl – $16
TME has a great vibe and the bowls, croquette and the crumbed camembert were AWESOME SAUCE. Unfortunately, everything else were pretty average and a touch on the expensive side.
