MrM say man with one chopstick go hungry
I consider myself a bit of a foodie and when it comes to my fav hot spots I love simple (yet intricate) dishes that are executed brilliantly. Dishes that inspire me to cook cuisines I never would attempt.

I went here last night with my partner and I can honestly say we were both blown into foodgasm and venue heaven.

From the staff (Simon was our waiter and he's an absolute champion), the decor, the atmosphere, the service (which is SUPER QUICK), the food, the drink ...

This.

Place.

Is.

Amazing.

I'm a local to Chapel Street and I've been walking past this place for a while and right now, as I sit here in front of my little laptop typing this away the day after, I am already planning when I'll be going there again. Heck, I'm going to take it a step further and organise a dinner there with my closest pals so we can order up the whole menu and die a happy death, Japanese food coma styles.

Alright, less blabbing more reviewing.

This is what we ordered:

To drink: 1 glass of Rose, and 1 Fuji Apple Ginger Cider (Kirin). It was the first time I'd tried the Kirin cider range and it's delicious. I'm a big fan of their beer so if you're a cider fan or just wanting to try something different - I'd highly recommend it.

Kirin Apple Ginger Cider Kirin
Kirin Fuji Apple & Ginger Cider - refreshingly tasty $12


To eat:
Small serving of the Sashimi (9pieces)

Tonkatsu Pork which is crumbed, served with chardonnay picked pear, celeriac and apple salad (DIVINE!)

Those photos don't even do it justice (as you can see they are a bit dark which reflects the interior mood of the venue).

What's my highlight dish? Hard call to make, but if this was a last meal situation I'd have to say the Wagyu Beef Tataki. It's smashingly tasty and the flavours just work so well!

Fun fact? I initially forgot to take photos of each dish as they arrived, my partner had to remind me. I was too excited to eat everything and got caught up in the amazingness of the food!

Mr.Miyagi has officially inspired me to attempt Japanese cuisine within my own kitchen and I figure after studying the language for 14 years, I am ready to give it a go.

My overall rating is most certainly a 5/5 and if you haven't gone here yet - put it on the list. In fact, put it on the 'let's go every week until we have tried the whole menu' list. You won't regret it and you'll probably see me there doing the same thing. We can even join tables and discuss the food together.

Mr.Miyagi might make us life long friends!
