However, the SO wanted to visit the Apple store in Robina and a colleague had highly recommended Amimoto, so I thought we should check it out.
Arriving 15 mins before 3pm, we found the eatery quiet with only 2 other patrons. Greeted by one of their three wait staff, we were directed to well-worn wood chairs. Amimoto's decor is traditional and possibly seen better days, but the food more than made up for the lack of an ambience.
I opted for the chirashi sushi (AUD$16) and it comes with urchin roe, salmon roe, prawn roe, scallop, octopus, squid, tuna, salmon, prawn, etc. and a very sweet shiitake mushroom. Every slice of fish is really fresh and I enjoyed every bite, washed down with authentic miso soup.
The SO had the katsu don (AUD$7.50) and it was really yummy and served piping hot, perfect for the chilly wet weather we had over the weekend.
Bottom line: Amimoto is definitely on our oh-yeah! list.
