Tetsuya’s restaurant, Sydney. Amazing food

Moving away from design for a moment, I thought I’d share some photos from a night out at arguable the best restaurant in Sydney, Tetsuya’s. If you love your food and/or live in Sydney you might have heard of the restaurant Tetsuya’s. A few years ago we celebrated my birthday there and thought we might do the same again in a little over a months time.

I expected there to be a wait before a booking was available, Tetsuya’s has won countless awards and is considered one of the best restaurants in Australia, if not anywhere. Hoping for a booking in late March I was told the first available table was in September… a mere 7 month wait. It must still be good…

Tetsuya’s serves a 13 course degustation menu, which changes from night to night. When we dined we received 3 entrées, 6 mains and 5 desserts, and I managed to take a photo of each course. If you love your food or are looking for a special night out in Sydney, read on, hopefully you’ll get to enjoy it as much as I did.

You’ll have to forgive the poor descriptions, they don’t do the courses justice, they’re all I could muster from 5 year old memories. Enjoy.
