Grain and Nori
Time Out says
Hawthorn is known for its award-winning brunch spots, but it’s also home to
some damn good sushi. Inside a shopping arcade a stone’s throw away from
Hawthorn station, you’ll find Grain and Nori, offering classics and some
left-of-centre options. In the beetroot and mushroom roll ($3.30), neon-purple rice hugs shiitake mushrooms cooked in miso and garlic, with a French green bean adding crunch. The Triple ‘S’ ($4) is a take on a schnitzel sandwich with miso mayo delivering salty, nutty creaminess. And check out the vending machine dispensing onigiri – a popular snack in which the nori is provided separately to keep it extra crisp – bursting with smoky, soy-infused cooked tuna sprinkled with bonito flakes and sesame seeds ($4).
