In a surprise move, Health Minister Brad Hazzard has ordered the immediate closure of all of NSW’s Sushi Train restaurants after a careless chef accidentally served him uncooked fish.
Sushi Train, a restaurant chain at which plates containing pieces of sushi roll continuously past diners on a circulating track, is popular with Australians who are enthralled by foreign foods and trains that aren’t late.
“It was disgusting, I was served some fish that was so rare I was wondering if they cooked it at all. That sort of carelessness is unacceptable in a so-called fine dining establishment” said Hazzard as he gargled with a bottle of water to get the taste out of his mouth.
“It’s an insult to traditional sushi chefs who I understand normally use a deep fryer.”
“I don’t know what to say” said clearly exasperated sushi chef Atari Kawasaki, who it is believed was responsible for preparing the suspect dish.
“I am not sure if he is serious or if I am being quoted for an article in a highly-respected newspaper or something.”
NSW Premier Gladys Berejiklian has announced the Sushi Train rail network will be decommissioned and replaced by Sushi Light Rail as soon as an extensive tendering process finds the company that can complete the project at the highest possible cost over the longest period of time.
