Mr Munchies Sushi, Mount Lawley

We’ve stopped going to Subway – not because of the mystery meat slices, the tacky faux brick walls or sickly “fresh bread” scent they blast into the street. It’s because of the customer ahead of us. You know him. The guy who orders the most disgusting, never-meant-to-be-combined concoction of sandwich fillers like crab meat, cheese, meatballs and onions. It’s the sandwich equivalent of a graveyard.

Mount Lawley’s newest sushi joint Mr Munchies is running a similar concept, giving lunch-goers free rein on what gets rolled up inside their sushi. First, you choose the base of tuna, beef, pork, salmon, chicken, or tofu. On top of that goes your choice of toppings like bacon, mango, cucumber, carrot, radish, garlic chips, potato salad . Your creation then gets doused with lashings of sauces like wasabi mayo, sweet chilli, teriyaki or sweet onion sauce.

And just to make things even more unconventional, you can even opt to have cheese melted on top. Do you see how things could get out of hand?

All warnings aside, Mr Munchies is an awesome little lunch joint. For the risk-averse, the menu offers tried-and-true sushi rolls like the spicy tuna roll and the crunchy spider roll. The portion sizes are huge (take a gander at the sheer size of the rolls before deciding on small or large, we beseech you!) and the vibe is super fun with its colourful chairs, chalkboard menus and a manga cityscape mural complete with Astro Boy and Godzilla.

Great: Innovative flavour combos and no bready breeze wafting through
Not so Great: The hockey puck-sized slices require delicate handling as they have a tendency to fall apart in your chopsticks

    I agree about that “fresh bread” scent of Subway…I’ve always hated it and hated the way it pervades everything around it. What on earth do they put in their bread to make it smell like that?!

    Design your own sushi…love this concept. I would have to restrain myself from going tobiko crazy though. Love popping eggs!

      Ooh, what are popping eggs?

        Those little tiny orange or black (or green) flying fish roe. Get em between your teeth for a satisfying “POP”
