Surprising modern Japanese creations in hearty portions worth the wait, with everything from fish seasoned and prepared in every way to creative iterations of the classics
For those who don’t mind a short wait, this hip Central haunt is a welcome hangout for a group of three or four looking for quality sake to go with tapas-style modern Japanese cuisine. There’s certainly something for everyone, from raw and cooked fish such as a zesty tartare or buttery robata cod to vegetarian-friendly snacks like the now-famous caramelised corn. The yaki don is not to be missed, while a bowl of bouncy udon with a hearty serving of snow crab and miso butter is the perfect bookend to a meal before asking the warm, friendly staff to recommend one of the two frozen desserts. While the speakers blaring ’90s pop-rock won’t be conducive to profound conversation, the energy of its young crowd will get you hyped for the rest of your evening plans.
What to order
- Amongst the plethora of fish offered, the market fish tartare is a zesty harmony of flavours with juicy white fish, cucumber, pomelo soaked in yuzu kosho that make a for welcoming (and beautiful) start to a meal.
- The crispy caramel butter corn lives up to all the hype with solid, chewy chunks encased by a crackling layer of glaze, satisfying both sweet and salty cravings.
- While the yaki udon is a crowd favourite, for the carb-averse, the saikyo miso black cod is the closest thing to umami, tender and buttery without being too sweet.
Five dishes with a good mix from the snacks, robata and noodles section are all you need for a party of two.
