Restaurant/Bar Review: Nobu

Location: Riverside at Crown
Phone: (03) 9292 7879
Cuisine: Modern Japanese

Decided to check out Aperitivo Fridays at Nobu's bar. We had lots of sake, cocktails and plum wine and this came with complimentary tapas.
Edamame to start
Whitefish Sashimi with dried miso and sushi
Everything you would expect. Whitefish sashimi had a bit of an Assam Laksa flavour to it which I really liked.
Beef Toban Yaki (on skewers)
Black cod with miso (on spoons)

The black cod with miso was amazing. It had a great balance in terms of flavour: salty yet sweet, crisp skin, soft flesh, with just a hint of sourness.
The beef toban yaki was delicious. Very tender. Strong soy and mirin flavours. The meat was soft and tender. Every piece was cooked to perfection.
Hokusetsu Onigoroshi Devil Killer (Cold)
Tasted quite dry, crisp and clean. Very strong.
Overall Impression: 7/10
Definitely worthwhile for both the drinks on offer and the delicious tapas. Lovely ambience and great service.
