I cannot get enough of the Sushi at Zipangu. I dearly wish they were open seven days a week! I like to stop in and grab a few selections of Sushi rolls and head down to the Esplanade near Four Mile beach and have a picnic. The other place to go with your fresh sushi from Zipangu is Anzac Park at the end of Macrossan Street. Nothing better than watching the boats come in of an afternoon whilst snacking on the amazingly good Sushi from Zipangu !
