Sushi Monger

Location: Shop 17, 309 Bourke Street [down the Causeway Arcade)
Cuisine: Japanese, Quick Meals

In short, this has got to be the cheapest sushi place in Melbourne. Two sushi rolls and a miso soup for $5. Hungry? Add another sushi roll and it's still only $6.80. Feel like the more traditional Japanese fare? All the various dishes (teriyaki chicken, gyudon, katsudon and so forth are also on offer.

The place itself is quite small and most people opt for the take-away option - cut up and places in a plastic container with your choice of soy, wasabi and ginger. Miso comes in a very handy take-away coffee cup.

One thing we've noticed about this place is that they use extremely fresh ingredient. You can even watch the background preparation if you have the time, because everything is done in the open. If you don't have the time, you can still taste the freshness of the ingredients when you bite into your food.

A word of warning, this place gets extremely busy during the lunchtime peak hour, so if you get a chance, try to get in before the rush, otherwise you won't be left with much to choose from!!

Overall rating: 10/10
