Izakaya Yebisu, Sydney CBD

Izakaya is the best choice for sampling a variety of Japanese cuisine, virtually the perfect accompaniment to beer or sake.

Izakaya Yebisu is located in a mecca for food, with Aqua S just right next door as well as Tenkomori. But there’s one area where Yebisu excels. Alcohol. Sake in particular.

Trolleys of sake are wheeled around the restaurant by waitstaff for you to peruse and should you select one, everyone in the restaurant will know what you’re drinking. It’s difficult not to notice as the waitstaff ring a bell and proclaim it loudly to all who can hear.


Agedashi eggplant $8.80

Agedashi eggplant sits in a pool of soy vinegar and sprinkled with garlic chips. It’s a tad undercooked for my liking, not soft and yielding but tastes pleasant.

 

Campari & grapefruit $7.80

 

Chicken skin teriyaki/curry $2.80

Chicken skin pieces skewered, dusted with curry spices and blow-torched are appealingly gelatinous in texture with slightly crisped edges.

 

                         Sashimi main (18p) $28.80

The sashimi consisting of scampi, salmon, kingfish, scallops and salmon roe is fresh and presented aesthetically well.

 

                         Grilled wagyu beef steak (100g) $25.80

Grilled wagyu steak is served in a blisteringly hot stone bowl and on a bed of mung bean sprouts which became wilted due to the heat of the stone bowl. I think some carbohydrates like potatoes would  have been a better side to the steak than flavourless bean sprout.s

 

Calpico $3.80

 

                      Karaage chicken $8.80

Deep-fried, juicy chicken morsels in a crunchy batter.

 

                    Deep fried ice cream $2 (with Washoku Lovers card)

Deep fried chocolate ice cream in tempura batter and chocolate sauce is available for Washoku Lovers card members (sign up here) at a discounted price. If you’re not a Washoku Lovers member, this dessert will cost a fraction more. Apologies but I forgot the price.
