B: Tetsuya’s has been on my list for far too long. Mr.K has kindly booked this restaurant more than 6 months in advance for my birthday. Unfortunately I didn’t bring my bulky camera into the restaurant and the only camera I had was my iPhone, so please excuse the low-res photos.
Located in the middle of Townhall, in a heritage listed site, it’s definitely unique amongst other fine dining venues. We were warmly greeted and were led to a table that faced a beautiful outdoor Japanese garden. We had the 12 course degustation.
Black truffle butter with ricotta and pecorino. This was served with fresh, warm bread. Just absolutely divine, I can’t describe how amazing the butter was.
Chilled pea soup with dark chocolate mousse. Interesting combination but worked so well.
Confit of Petuna ocean trout with fennel and unpasteurised ocean trout caviar. Tetsuya’s signature dish. This is a soft ocean trout derived from the ocean trout grown in Tasmania. Tetsuya assists in the breeding program to ensure the end product is exactly as required. This world-known dish just melts in your mouth.
Chocolate fondant with hazelnut and praline. This was my birthday dessert instead of the floating island. I was really surprised they served this only knowing it was my birthday when we arrived. Tetsuya really caters for his customers.
