Tetsuya’s – Sydney

Hi Everyone!

So a couple of weeks ago my friends (Tommy, Jenny, Clement, Richard, Kerry, Charley and Mona), the boyfriend and I went to Tetsuya’s. We were all so excited as we had been given a private room which we needed during our ‘talks’ throughout the night. Many people have heard of Tetsuya’s, but many people also disagree with the price tag. I have been lucky enough to have been to Tetsuya’s twice now, the first was when my best friend took me there for my 19th birthday (then it was only $175pp, now $200pp). But the excitement was still there. Without further ado, we shall start with our meal.

Butter with Black Truffles and Ricotta

Warm Bread

Warm Chestnut Soup

Pacific Oysters with Rice Vinegar and Ginger

Sashimi of Kingfish with Blackbean and Orange

New Zealand Scampi Tails with Curd and Scampi Jus

Confit Petuna Ocean Trout with Konbu, Celery and Apple

Grilled Fillet of Barramundi with Braised Wood Ear and Chestnut Mushroom

Braised Ox Tail with Sea Cucumber and Yuzu

Twice-Cooked De-Boned Spatchcock with Truffle and Barley Risotto

Seared Veal Fillet with Sea Urchin and Wasabi Butter

Pear Sorbet

Bread and Butter Pudding

Cannellini Beans with Mascarpone and Soy Caramel

Chocolate Pave with Cream Cheese Ice Cream and Cinnamon Twigs

Macarons – Macadamia, Pistachio and Strawberry

By the end of the night we were all quite full. All the dishes were delicious. Although my personal favourite would have to be either the oysters or the scampi. I just love scampi!

I did miss my Lemon Scented Floating Island with Vanilla Bean Anglaise though. I was looking forward to it as well. It was the most memorable part of the meal the first time I went to Tetsuya’s. But I was still satisfied with what was served.

What made my experience even better was that I was with such a great group of friends. I love how they’ve all contributed to my blog in their own little way. Especially to the boyfriend who takes me to all these different places. Thank you to you all.

I think if you have a chance to go to Tetsuya’s, you should go. It is quite pricey, but it is well worth it. Soak in the ambiance, soak in the food. You will enjoy it all. I hope I will have more chances to go to Tetsuya’s. I would also love to someday go to Tetsuya’s new restaurant Marina Bay Sands, Waku Ghin. Who wants to go on holidays to Singapore with me?

Happy nom nom nom-ing!

      It used to be cheaper. But I guess because of inflation it’s going up. If you have a chance you should go. But I do kind of think there are many other restaurants out there that are better than Tetsuya’s..and cheaper.
