Another golden gem tucked inside Sydney International Airport Departures is Itacho Sushi. Itacho is a sister to the uber popular chain of great restaurants in Hong Kong and Singapore’s Orchard Road. A haven for Asian tourists seeking traditional Ramen and fruits of the sea and those looking to enjoy a adult Japanese beverage pre-flight (translated Asahi beer and cold and hot Sake) - look no further - as you are likely to spot vegetarian rockers Joel and Benji Madden of Good Charlotte tucked in around the corner.
Itacho wins hearts not only for it’s exceptional food, under the auspicious eye of chef Yoshi (an authentic Itacho sushi masterchef), but for Terri-san and the super friendly Japanese speaking crew on the cutting bench and helping guests find what they need.
Itacho has a beautiful full service sushi bar and ample room to store your carry roll-a-board bag against the wall. If you got held up in the competent and thorough hands of Australian Customs and Security officers, no need to worry, Itacho also has complete Bento Box meals for in-flight snacking and those on a quick lunch break.
