One of our regular spots Kosho has launched a new menu showcasing Japanese fusion foods, taking you on a flavour adventure around the world. We were incredibly impressed with their new menu, the best one yet.
Sashimi Taco, Nori Chips and Assorted Sashimi
There is something about these taco’s that looked incredibly appealing. The black nori chip contrasted against the pink and white assorted sashimi. The nori to sashimi ratio was on point, and it helped that the fish was fresh. We highly recommend this as a starter.
Kingfish, Yuzu Ponzo and Pickled Shisho
Seeing all this fresh fish on the menu made me one happy girl. The kingfish floated in the light citrus yuzu ponzo sauce and was accompanied by the pickled shisho. The combination of flavours worked perfectly, as it is typical you will find kingfish sashimi paired with this kind of sauce.
Aburi Tuna Roll, Tamago, Cucumber and Avocado
Sushi is my life, I could honestly eat it every day. Along with the fresh tuna the rice was sticky and paired well with all the other vegetables. The sushi had some great flavours, was good quality and clearly made fresh on the night.
Chicken Tenderloin Katsu and Tonkatsu
There is something about Japanese chicken tonkatsu that is super delicious. The crispy outer combined with the juicy chicken is a dish to remember. It wasn’t too oily but it helped to keep the tenderloin moist and pleasant to eat.
Tsukune, Chicken, Sous Vide Egg and Potato Crisp
This was one of the most interesting dishes of the night. What seemed like a tofu like patty, was actually a traditional yakitori dish or as we might see it; a chicken meatball. The tsukune itself was super moist with a lot of flavour. I loved the addition of the runny egg as it gave the dish that point of difference, and I am obsessed with eggs.
Tempura Prawn, Spencer Gulf King Prawn, Dashi
One of my favourite dishes on the menu. These whole king prawns had been fried in a light tempura batter and paired with dashi. The crisp tempura was delightful and the prawn itself was incredibly fresh. I have nothing bad to say about this dish.
Miso Barramundi Fillet, Sweet Miso and Soy Dashi
A light dish but with a lot of flavour. The sweet miso worked perfectly with the delicate fish, and the soy dashi gave the fish that hint of light salt it needed. This is a great meal that could be shared or eaten as a main.
Pork Chashu Steak, Wasabi and Ginger Teriyaki
When ordering pork I usually go for a crispy pork belly, chatshu steak would not be my first choice. In saying this I loved this dish, it was one of my favourites on the night. Coating the steak was a ginger teriyaki sauce which complimented the light pork. Everything about this meal steak screamed flavour.
Chargrilled Beef Rib, Yuzu Kosho and Sichimi
Ribs are one of my favourite things to eat, and there was so much flavour on these bad boys. The beef pulled off the bone effortlessly and worked awesomely with the yuzu and sichimi. A great dish to share.
An awesome way to end the night, with what was an interesting but delicious dessert. Who would have thought an Asian herb mixed with an Italian cake would work but it certainly did. Layers of sponge, with a light matcha cream topped with what seemed like watermelon. I could eat a whole thing to myself easily, and can’t wait to come back for more.
Thank you to the team at Kosho for introducing us to your new menu. We loved it all and can’t wait to come back to try more!
