What if?

Hi all!

I've been MIA for a few months due to uni and picking up a xmas casual position at a certain cosmetic counter!

I missed blogging and thought I'd try to get back into it, and what better way than food?

I recently had the Kobe Jones Luxury course at Kobe Jones (duh). I was slightly worried after reading all the negative reviews on eatability regarding the service (or lack thereof) but I was pleasantly surprised! The waitress looking after our table was somewhat indifferent in the beginning but really warmed up and was very pleasant throughout our meal. Excuse the picture quality - still in the process of purchasing a drsl:(. Descriptions taken from Kobe Jones website.

NUMBER ONE SPECIAL - crab salad with avocado wrapped in Hiramasa
kingfish and baked with our secret sauce
This was probably my favourite dish - i went straight to munching before realising I hadn't taken a photo!

SUSHI PLATTER - chef’s selection of our finest nigiri and rolls

ANAGO SCALLOPS - tempura Hokkaido scallops stuffed with crab salad and asparagus, drizzled with a bittersweet soy sauce glaze

SEAFOOD POKE - Hawaiian style sashimi cubes marinated in poke sauce

HAWAIIAN ROLL - prawns, cucumber, burdock root and pineapple chilli jam topped with tuna and avocado and drizzled with poke sauce
I couldn't stomach this dish as the chilli jam was too hot, although admittedly I don't take spiciness too well.

WAGYU TENDERLOIN TATAKI - seared and chilled, served rare with garlic, ginger and ponzu sauce
This was a standout too - the meat was very tender.

VOLCANO ROLL - oven baked scallops layered on a crab salad and avocado roll, with our special cream sauce and a sesame seed and shallot sprinkle
The cream sauce was delicious and perfect with the scallops, though it became a bit overkill as the sushi was drenched in it.

MISO CITRUS LOBSTER TAIL - grilled green lobster tail served in a miso citrus sauce on a bed of steamed vegetables and wafu thermidor sauce

WAGYU HOT ROCK - self-cook your wagyu just the way you like it, served with seasoning and two dipping sauces

AMA OZEN - Kobe Jones’s famous selection of dessert samplers with our trademark chocolate chopsticks
I had high hopes for this but was a bit disappointed, or maybe I was just too full at this point!

Overall it was quite an enjoyable experience with good company. The view was excellent as was the decor. I can't wait to go back again but probably won't order the 10 meal course again as I was way too full by the end.

This is me poking L with the chocolate chopsticks hehe:)
