If you’re a regular to North Terrace, you may have discovered the plethora of amazing new restaurants popping up in and around the Riverbank precinct. One of the new additions in 2014 has been the Ginza Miyako Japanese Restaurant, neatly tucked away on the first floor of the Stamford Plaza, across from Parliament House. You’d be forgiven if you’ve walked past it and haven’t realised it, as this hidden gem of the Adelaide food scene has a fairly minimal street presence (you need to take the coloured stairs up via their North Terrace entrance or enter through the hotel lobby). Once you’ve passed through the doors however you are taken into another world, where the hustle and bustle of North Terrace disappears and you’re able to enjoy the serenity of this Japanese French Fusion restaurant.
Owned by the renowned Taste of the Orient group, their Head Chef, Kazuki Ushiro is a master of both French and Japanese cuisines and has designed a menu that combines the best of both worlds while introducing local Australian ingredients to the mix. What he delivers is a delicious offering perfect for a quick bite to eat in your lunch hour or on the way to the theatre, while also offering an amazing array of culinary delights on their A La Carte menu, perfect for a Christmas staff lunch, a client meeting (read long lunch) or an impressive night out with friends or loved ones. There is also a Festive Menu during December!
Signature dishes on the menu include orange cured ocean trout confit, venison tataki, slow cooked duck breast, as well as vegan dishes such as vegetable sushi and tofu steak.
Located in the five-star Stamford Plaza Hotel on North Terrance in Adelaide’s CBD, Ginza Miyako presents the perfect dining destination for those who love authentic Japanese cuisine, but with a twist.
