MELBOURNE | The Sushi Baker is an online food business founded by university student Minh Kha Nguyen during Melbourne’s winter 2020 lockdown. The concept proved popular with customers, so Minh decided to continue the business post-lockdown, navigating the challenges of growing his small business in a changed landscape, while balancing it with his studies.
The concept is simple. Assorted sushi bake trays, available in three sizes, made using top quality ingredients. Once you’ve got your tray, you simply take off the lid, heat it up in the oven (exact times depend on your order – no more than 10 mins), and enjoy by scooping portions out of the tray and wrapping them in the provided nori sheets.
Minh sent me his signature salmon melt and chicken teriyaki trays, and both were delicious. It’s easy to see why the salmon melt is the most popular item on the menu – Japanese rice mixed with Atlantic salmon and creamy mentai sauce, topped with seared smoked salmon, panko, and ungai sauce.
Orders can be placed by DM via the Sushi Baker Instagram and Facebook pages, any time of the week for Saturday and Sunday delivery. Each tray is made fresh to order on the day of delivery. Keep an eye out for one-off limited flavours and collaboration creations.
