Fishbowl Sashimi Bar opens in Surry Hills

Fishbowl is a dynamic and refreshing concept that allows customers to BYOB (build your own bowl) by selecting their choice of base, choice of sashimi and an assortment of house prepared toppings and dressings to create their own unique sashimi salad. In other words – you can indulge in a freshly prepared bowl of sashimi tailor made to your individual taste!

It’s the perfect meal for lunch, dinner, a late-night snack and everything in between, and is a cross between Hawaiian poke (a century-old fisherman’s lunch of raw fish off-cuts) and a Japanese sashimi salad, offering the happy result of freshly diced, raw-sashimi salads.

The build-your-own-bowl makes ordering simple. All you have to do is pick a base, may it be brown or white rice, vermicelli or something leafy. Add a protein (tuna, salmon, kingfish or tofu), some Japanese-style vegetables such as radish, edamame, shallots, ginger or red onion, toss in a dressing, and then top it off with something crunchy (fish roe or edamame dust).

But if you’re like us and can’t decide, or are afraid of getting a little too excited and ordering a combination of everything, Fishbowl also has done all the hard work for you and have created five house favourites. Check them out on the menu that can be found on its website.

The interior mimics LA’s beach vibe. Tasmanian hardwood was used to create the wave roof, tables and stools. Miami-pink tiles act as the bar’s façade, while a pink neon-sign, spelling “sashimi”, decorates an exposed-brick wall.

A sashimi bar, combining the flavours we love from sushi, but with more flexibility and customisation – sounds delish to us!
