Fuku Restaurant Sake and Wine Bar, Sydney
I love Japanese food and can never get enough of it! Even when one is pregnant, they can still eat Japanese food, the hot food that is – there is just a lot of variety! I was catching up with the lovely R for lunch, and she suggested Fuku which can be found in World Square just opposite Din Tai Fung. We always go for Japanese food – nothing wrong with that, as I absolutely love it!
I’m not quite sure how long Fuku has been around for. I don’t go to Din Tai Fung as often as I used too so hardly ever go up there. It is quite a large restaurant and spacious, and was busy for a lunch time on a weekday! The menu is vast, many options, bento boxes, set lunches and a la carte.
I have been craving fried chicken for a while now so opt for the chicken karaage lunch set. With is came sashimi, some fresh vegetables and tofu.
The chicken karaage was a little different than norm. it came with some sort of sauce which didn’t make the skin as crispy as I had hoped. It was still very tasty thougth and the meat was very moist and tender. It definitely satisfied the cravings!
R had the beef, I didn’t have any but she definitely enjoyed it!
I also ordered a side of grilled sweet miso glazed eggplant and it was absolutely delightful. A little on the sweeter side but I certainly enjoyed it. it was wonderfully soft and sweet and loved the addition of the lotus root chips!
Would definitely love to come for dinner next time I’m in town to try the sashimi and other wonderful dishes. Service was indeed polite, and food came relatively quickly.
