Sash is a modern Japanese Mexican fusion restaurant on Chapel Street that is famous for their creative menu. They have a range of killer cocktails as well as Sash-izza and the vibe is very modern and hip. We had heard great things about this place so checked it out for dinner one night.
To start off with, we ordered our drinks. I ordered their signature cocktail the Geisha girl with cranberry, plum yuzu, gin and lemon juice. This was sweet and fruity and beautiful, the perfect summer drink. We also ordered the Jalapeno margarita which was as interesting as it sounds, the jalapeno added a great kick to the margarita, chilli lovers would love this one!
We went with the feed me menu as we could not decided what to order. The first was the Spicy tuna tacos with avocado salsa and japanese spicy mayo. These were very spicy and certainly woke me up, I loved the tender fresh tuna and the creamy avocado salsa.
Next we got two of the Chilli mayo prawn slider on a charcoal bun with kale salad. I loved the chilli mayo sauce and the crunchy prawn, the bread of the bun was also nice and bouncy.
For our mains we tried the Salmon open poke plate with salmon ponzu. The salmon here was delicious, so tender and fresh and I also really enjoyed the edamame and sauce.
Next we tried the Ebi mayo prawn Sashizza, which is a Rice based pizza mixed with sauce and cooked in a pizza oven. This was an interesting concept, the rice was dense and quite filing and I really like the ebi mayo prawns which were cooked well.
Finally we tried their signature Ahi Tuna pizza with seared sesame ahi tuna, mango, strawberry, avocado, wasabi mayo and ginger on a black base. This is one of the most interesting pizzas I have tried, I loved the Japanese fusion flavours and the sweet touch that the fruit adds to the dish! The tuna was also well marinated and the wasabi mayo added a good kick.
For dessert we tried the Raspberry macaron ice cream with strawberries, nutella and pistachios the ice cream was creamy and perfectly balanced by the tartness of the strawberries.
Overall, Sash is definitely worth a try if you are into fusion cuisines, their menu is one of the most creative and original I have seen and a lot of the dishes are pulled off well. They are opening in Sydney in April 2018 so make sure you look out for that as well!
