Kura Kura Japanese Casual Dining

Day 2 in Sydney ended with more Japanese food but this time, in a swanky but affordable restaurant near Chinatown. I was advised that we may have to queue for seats but lady luck was on our side and gifted us with a table right in the middle of the restaurant.

What impressed me the most was the service. They provided us with an ipad menu that not only has a good categorization of the food but also updates us on the progress of our order. Despite having this technology at hand, the serving staff were still very helpful and efficient! Absolutely love this place and would visit it again in the future:)

Plum wine ~ something different from our usual routine. This little bottle costs about $6 but it was more than enough for both of us. Little luxuries in life keeps me happy!

Sashimi plate with salmon, tuna, kingfish and squid ~ the sashimi pieces were plump and fresh. The chef sliced us thick pieces of fish which was such a pleasure to eat! If only I could get something like this in Adelaide:(

Soft shell crab roll ~ As a fan of soft shell crabs, I had to order their version for comparison reasons. The crab legs were skinnier than the ones I can get in Adelaide but overall, it was still a very tasty and refreshing roll.

Udon with tempura prawn ~ I would not confess that this is the best bowl of udon that I had but it does taste like most of the other udons I had before (which is not a bad thing!). Warm bowl of soup, udon noodles, fried prawn tempura, poached egg and a good garnish of seaweed. Yep, the prefect way to warm up on a cold Sydney night:)

Cheap eats (compared to other Japanese restaurants), efficient service and value for money food. What more can a tourist ask for?
