Moeru is a new Japanese Eatery in West Ryde. I wanted some delicious Sushi.
West Ryde has two other Japanese restaurants - both very popular. Yatai is right by the train station and Tatsuya is attached to a petrol station but is the most popular by far. Moeru has now entered the scene and seems to be gaining traction. I am seeing more and more people in Moeru.
I ordered the medium sushi (top photo, $24.90 for 14 pieces). The platter of sushi had a mix of nigiri of eel, salmon, tuna, king fish and prawn. Each morsel was fresh and delicious and up to standard. A definite recommend but I have to say I also very much enjoy the sashimi platters at Tatsuya.
Moeru had some specials that night so I thought I'd try the tempura fried eel ($15ish, above). The tempura is light and crispy; the eel is crunchy as well but I don't get much of the eel flavour. I'm not sure if I'd order this again. I also order the smoked miso cod (below, $25ish). It has a light smokey flavour with mild buttery miso flavours. It was nice but a little bit light in portion generosity.
Overall, I had a nice experience at Moeru, I think the sushi/sashimi is great and I'll have to come back to try the other dishes.
