Tetsuya's is known as one of the Best restaurant in Sydney and obviously of the world... The 9th of the World best restaurant in 2008 and the 4th in 2007
Since it is not little about of money, I thought a lot about going there. Because when I read lots of reviews, I found that some dishes I don't really like for example, I am not a fan of sorbet and some main dishes looks too normal.. So I asked Lorraine for advice and she said she had a wonderful meal there... Um..I believe her and I made the right decision.. Thanks Lorraine !
Inside, I must say it is so simple Japanese style, not as special as I expect.
The creamy pea soup is nice, a bit salty. I think because it is the first course, the saltiness allows room for more appetite.
We were informed about this oyster then why not ! The oysters of course were fresh but the dressing was super fresh.
Course 3 : Smoked Ocean Trout & Avruga Caviar
Course 5 : Scampi Cooked Three-Way : Grilled Scampi Wrapped in Pancetta, Scampi in Sea Water & Lemon Scented Olive Oil, and Marinated Scampi with White Miso and Passionfruit
My most favourite !!! The thin sliced Wagyu was rolled up and very lightly seared. Before eat, squeeze the lime juice first and put a bit of wasabi and sea salt. we were told by waitstaff.
Course 13 : Beetroot & Blood Orange Sorbet, Summer Pudding
I saw in some reviews, there are the liquid filling inside. My one didn't have..maybe I should ask my friends.
Marsh mallow was ok, chocolate macaroon had a kick from peppercorn, shortbread was beautifully short, the coconut ball had date inside, even I don't like coconut in dessert but I like this one.
Hong asked his friend who is waitstaff there whether Tetsuya can come out to see us. His friend was kindly told that Tetsuya had been in the restaurant earlier in the evening but now he didn't see him in the kitchen. (Panda, now I think maybe it is the way of saying that ? lol)
By the way, I was so lucky !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
