Lesson learnt: always order what the restaurant specialises in. I don’t know what drove me into order tempura and teriyaki chicken at a place named Sushi Tengoku. It could have been the cold windy wet weather… or maybe it was Zen…
So after a late night at uni, Zen and I decided to stop by this small neon-lit restaurant, which we’d always driven past. Sushi Tengoku was packed with local “honkie” families. As soon as you enter, you’re exposed to a fresh but fishy scent. I sat on the only available table, and waited for it to be cleaned whilst listening to everyone’s conversations about food. Every table seemed to prize what they had ordered… fresh sashimi, and sushi of every sort… mMm…

Overall, the sushi was amazing… and is probably the only thing you should order. It’s all extremely fresh, well-priced and offers a vast variety of fresh seafood and sashimi. I’ll definately pass on the hot food next time round.
