Yebisu, Sydney

Yebisu can be found where the old Azuma used to be. In fact, the whole floor has changed! Ton Ton ramen has been replaced by Tenkomori (similar to Mappen and oiden) and Azuma patisserie has been replaced by Chanoma (serving green tea soft serve, drinks and hot dogs).

I was here for lunch, have been here twice now! If you have been to Azuma before, you would notice that the layout has been untouched. I love the décor, and the touch screen menu to order. Lunch consists of set lunches, no yakitori and no chicken karaage which we were all disappointed about. I didn’t get a chance to come for dinner on this visit but will definitely come back next time.

The lunch set varies from sushi, sashimi, chicken teriyaki, to wagyu beef to their special Yebisu lunch set. With each lunch set, you are served a salad which was nice but nothing special.

Sashimi and sushi – YUM! I love sashimi

Some sort of fish

And of course miso soup! SO MUCH FOOD for lunch Mum thought!

I couldn’t go past the wagyu beef, which was served on a hot stone. The beef comes extremely rare, too rare for my liking and you can ‘heat’ or ‘cook’ it more on the round thing which is on your left hand side – pretty cool I thought!

The salmon teriyaki was a rather small serving I thought but the fish was beautifully cooked.

Mum absolutely loved the sushi – I can’t for the life remember what they are, think it was chicken and salmon and avocado which she loved.

The edamame beans were a hit, grated with some rock salt.

The gyoza wasn’t too bad.

Neither was the soft shell crab sushi

‘The Mother’ wanted to try the green tea creme brule – it passed the ‘crack’ test but the brule itself wasn’t as good as I had hoped. It was a little too cooked for my liking, making it more like custard type.

I forgot to take pictures of the agedashi tofu which was deliciously silky and one of the set meals that my brother ordered, the Yebisu set meal which came with a lot of food! Even he was defeated. Service was quick and polite, food came relatively quickly and I have to say it was delicious. I was rather disappointed that I didn’t get to try the yakitori as I have been looking for a ‘good’ yakitori in Sydney. No doubt there is not a shortage in Hong Kong!

Will definitely be back for dinner, we all really enjoyed our meal here.

    That’s some fancy Himalayan rock salting at the table! We were disappointed, too, that they don’t have yakitori dishes at lunchtime, but my chirashi sushi was super tasty.
