Tetsuya’s – 3 out of 3 for Sydney!

For our last dinner in Sydney, we ate at Tetsuya’s.  It was outstanding.  I am really impressed with the food in this city.  We have not had a bad meal yet, and its not just the fine dining places.  For example, I had a random beef curry pie at a place near the ferry terminal, and it too was delicious.

Here was the menu:


We had a nice view of the Japanese garden.


To start, they brought some nori bread and truffle butter.  These were ok.  Nothing special.

The first dish was tuna with daikon and wasabi.  It was fresh and ok too.


This was followed by octopus which was well cooked.  Tender and delicious.


Next was the trout.  This was an outstanding dish.  Everything worked well together.  The trout was so fresh and had lots of umami.  The dish was also one of the most beautiful I have seen in a while.  I could probably have this everyday.


Next was cod.  Very tasty.


The first meat course was duck.  Lots of umami.


….followed by wagyu, how could things go wrong?


The first dessert was a blood orange and beetroot dessert in white chocolate.  It was the perfect transition from savory as the citrus brought a nice cleanse to the meal.


The second dessert was lychee and strawberries.


…and finally, petit fours.


The service was perfect in every way.  Staff were knowledgeable and engaged in interesting conversation.  The meal was fantastic.  I would definitely return.  That’s 3/3 outstanding dinners in Sydney.  Not one was overrated, disappointing or anything along those line.  Very impressive food scene.  9.5/10
