Restaurant of the rising sun Asahi is Ballarat’s first sushi and sashimi joint. It’s no wonder the name translates to ’rising sun’ as it must have been a glorious day for this little Victorian town. Japanese sashimi isn’t just fresh fish slapped onto your plate. If it were that easy, we’d be making it at home. Actually, it takes a wizened chef to first select the fine seafood, and then to slice it in a way that requires years of expertise. That’s why we go to asahi where the chefs know what they’re doing and the sashimi is just like they have it in Japan - delicious. Japanese food is also renowned for its healthiness, most of which is low fat, unsaturated, fresh and delicate. That makes Asahi the place for a delicious, and more importantly, guilt-free, gobble. Try some authentic miso chicken, made from Japan’s famous fermented marinade, or some teriyaki salmon, that fatty fish that experts praise as a superfood. We’re just stoked that it’s all so good for you! Gotta love Japanese food, gotta love Asahi. Best dish: Sukiyaki Udon
