Ginza Miyako restaurant has presented us with dish after dish of delicious Japanese-French fusion cuisine since opening late last year. Now (right now! Today!) Head Chef Kazuki Ushiro San is bringing some new flavours to the table to cater for all diets.
With experience in restaurants from Tokyo to Paris Chef Ushiro San is always striving to bring the highest calibre of cuisine to Adelaide diners, and the new menu items are no exception.
Focussing on seasonal produce the new entrees include a rabbit terrine served with fig, mushroom pickle, carrot salad, witlof, carrot puree and madeira wine. Or for the vegan diners in our midst try a vegetable tartare flavoured with miso and olive.
The additions to the mains include Port Lincoln Kingfish served in a saikyouyaki style with squid ink risotto, turnip and swede veloute sauce; pan fried Gawler River quail sanshoyaki style, which is served with gnocchi fritters, potato purée, confit vegetable, Japanese ratatouille and quail jus.
But our main pick of the bunch? The roasted wagyu marble 7 (that means it’s damned good quality) Scotch fillet with mushroom potato purée, purple carrot, mushroom fricassee, macha nuts and red wine yuzu (Japanese citrus) chilli sauce. You’ve never tasted beef quite like it before. It melts in your mouth, and the contrast of flavours with the yuzu chilli sauce is to die for!
And even though after all those mouth-watering courses you’re probably quite full we all know you HAVE to make room for dessert. For some really interesting asian flavours try the macha (green tea) tiramisu, and for our vegan friends? Try the amazake sorbet with fruit compote and kuzuko dango. We have very little clue what all those crazy words mean, but we can tell you it tastes like a party in your mouth.
You can choose to immerse yourself in the Japanese culture and dine seated in traditional style, seated on the floor or alternatively if you’re wearing a skirt you can sit in the immaculate western dining area.
Delight your taste buds and head down to Ginza Miyako (Level 1 Stamford Plaza, North Tce) for lunch or dinner Monday to Friday or for an evening meal Saturday and Sunday. Visit their website for more information: ginzamiyako.com.au
