The Modern Eatery - Fremantle

After being away for two months and not being able to drive by myself in Jakarta, I'm relishing in my independence back in Perth. Here, I'm free to drive wherever and whenever I want! So, my friend and I planned a dinner date all the way in Fremantle to check out The Modern Eatery.

As I'm typing this I'm really kicking myself for not taking photos of the restaurant and its facade, but, truth be told I sometimes get embarrassed for taking photos of food and restaurants so openly in public, for being so stereotypically Asian... Anyway, the restaurant was smaller than I expected, but really cosy. They were also tables available in front of the kitchen, so you can watch while they prepare your sushi.

Fry me to the Moon ($15)

The first dish we ordered was Fry me to the Moon, which is a deep fried sushi roll with cooked salmon and cream cheese. The sauce at the bottom is a combination of sweet chilli mayo and sweet soy sauce. I expected this sushi roll to be dry as I've previously experienced with other deep fried sushis. But, this was deliciously moist. The rice was cooked perfectly, there was a good amount of salmon and cream cheese and there was the right amount of sauces so it was not too sweet.

Signature Combo ($20)

We also ordered their Signature Combo, after reading how popular it is on Urbanspoon. This dish contained one pieces each of aburi salmon nigiri, aburi tuna nigiri and aburi hotate nigiri, and two pieces each of salmon oshi and ebi oshi. The waiter recommended we do not dip the oshis into soy sauce as it already has soy sauce in it (at least I think that's what he said, I stop listening when there's food in front of me). The oshis were uh-may-zing! The prawns and salmon on them were extraordinarily tender and melt-in-your-mouth. As we put them in our mouths we were lost for words and could only stare at each other and uhm and ahhed. It was as if they made the prawn and salmon out of cream! The aburis were equally as delicious, except the aburi hotate nigiri had a suprisingly large amount of wasabi which very effectively cleared out my nostrils.

Ayers Rock N' Roll ($9) and Baby Dragon ($13)

We ordered Ayers Rock N' Roll and Baby Dragon purely because the menu said they contained sweet potato fries and unagi respectively. The appearance of Ayers Rock N' Roll really lived up to its name. Like the previous sushis, it was delectable. One minor disappointment, for me, was the fact the sweet potato fries was more like frazzled sweet potato strings, it was delicate and visually appealing, but did not contribute much to the flavour of the roll. The Baby Dragon was the one I most looked forward to because I highly enjoy eating unagi. Overall the Baby Dragon was a pleasure to eat, the avocado was smooth and the sauce very tasty. However, I have to say it was my least favourite dish as I could hardly taste the unagi.

Green Tea Creme Brulee ($7.50)

To finish the evening, we ordered The Modern Eatery's only dessert, the Green Tea Creme Brulee. At first glance the creme brulees did not look very appealing as the caramelized sugar produced unattractive brown colour against the soft green. But, as we scooped into it, we forgot all about its presentation. We both agreed the texture was perfectly smooth and creamy the sweetness was just right, however, the green tea flavour could be a lot stronger.

My friend and I left The Modern Eatery very satisfied and we will definitely be back! I would rate it 8/10.
