Friday Favourites 3: Deep Fried Oyster sushi

Deep Fried Oyster sushi from Bian Sushi. It’s divine.

Bian Sushi is one of my favourite sushi places in Auckland. They play light jazz, have a great selection of sushi which gets eaten quickly due to demand. High turnover means fresh sushi. At lunchtime, the queue can snake from  along the sushi counter, through the shop and out the door. Thankfully the line is a fast moving one. You should avoid sushi places that don’t have any customers. An empty dining room might be a warning, but the sushi that you eat will probably have been sitting there since the morning.

Bian also have a menu if you want to order hot food from the kitchen and these come in full and half sizes. Half size is perfect if you can’t decide between sushi or hot food. You can have both!

Highlights: Free green tea and free tartar sauce, Deep Fried Oyster sushi, green beans sushi, unagi and their spicy chicken rice dish (karaage).
