One Winter’s evening in Sydney Steve & I decided to try out Kuki Tanuki – a Japanese restaurant in Erskineville. It had some great views on Broadsheet so we thought to give it a go seeing as we hadn’t eaten Japanese food in a long time after our travels around the world.

We were greeted by really friendly staff to be seated along the narrow part of the Sydney restaurant. It reminded me of sitting at a bar, yet it wasn’t a bar and we were looking at the chefs cooking rather than a barman pouring endless amounts of drinks.

The menu sounded amazing so we ordered the following dishes:

2 x miso soup $4 each

1 x Rice bowl $3

Spicy Spider Inside Out Roll $14

Tasmanian Roll – Aburi Stylr $16

Slow poached duck $27

The Tasmanian Roll was incredible, we could have eaten that all day long and the duck, wow… I mean that was just out of this world. Mental!

The Spicy Spider Roll was also beautiful with a crispy texture and this has to be one of the best Japanese restaurants I’ve ever eaten at. The ingredients were very fresh and it was just a perfect place, pretty quiet and a really enjoyable experience

Definitely worth a visit Sydney peeps! Have you been to anywhere amazing recently that you’d recommend? I’d love to hear about it, please write in the comments below.
