I’ve been to Nobu Melbourne twice now and both times it has been immaculate. The food is stunning. Each dish is a testament to the flavours it should posses – those of the individual ingredients. In other words, the dishes are by no means your usual fare but they don’t try to be too innovative and mess with the delicate balance of aromas, tastes and visual appeal.
The New Style Salmon Sashimi and Beef Tataki are high on the ‘loves it’ list and the Duck Hot Pot was a treat. It was all good – the Sashimi Tacos, vegetable Toban Yaki, Seafood Toban Yaki. I indulged in caramel parfait with candied peanuts, chocolate sponge and miso mousse … incredible.
Between three of us we drank cocktails, Ciroc (my favourite) vodka, Veuve and other fragrant wines.
A definite if you’re in Melbourne and not as pricey as some may think considering its fine dining, somewhat celebrity status. It was, after all, started by one of the most celebrated chefs worldwide, Nobu Matsuhisa. I would love to sample the other Nobu locations to compare… one day… on my worldwide travels.
