Sushi lunch at Fortune House, Sea Point

To our distress, our favourite Sea Point Chinese restaurant, Dynasty, has recently changed hands and has been re-named. We were looking for an alternative. Lynne found an offer on Hyperli that was hard to refuse, so we bought our coupon and headed to Fortune House for lunch this week. It is on Main Road, near the corner with Hall Road, on the beach side of the road
A bit dark inside, but there was a regular string of people ordering takeaways and several people eating in the restaurant. It is also on Mr Delivery. We asked a local what the sushi was like and she said "very good"; they order it almost weekly. Prices are reasonable
A bit night clubby, but clean and comfortable
We discovered that our waitress, Joyce, was previously employed at Dynasty
The owner is also the chef; he was very obliging and was busy making the sushi
They do not have a licence, so we took along our own wine, 
a 2015 Sea Salter Sauvignon blanc Semillon blend from Groote Post
It is crisp and full and has hints of the sea
It is a very good match to sushi
We had a plate of 30 pieces of sushi, all made there and then, with very fresh fish and excellent rice
The cost of the voucher for this was R110 and it certainly was enough for 2 people to share 
To Lynne's delight, they do not use cucumber. This offer is not on their regular menu,
but there are many different options to choose from, including several platters
We heard someone ordering dim sum dumplings, so we had to try them. You get 10 in a serving, according to the menu, but they brought us 11 with a good dipping sauce; you can have plain steamed or steamed and fried. These are the latter and the content was beef. They also have chicken. They are good and are nice and filling

Our bill for the dumplings. We will be going back soon to try some of the other menu items
We were impressed
