For my 30th birthday, my lovely lovely man Mr Black took me to Tetsuya’s. After 5 years of waiting and wishing and imagining, I am happy to say it lived up to all my expectations! (The foodie hipsters who ‘don’t like it’ on Urbanspoon are just picking tall poppies and should get over themselves.) In my opinion, there are no words which can do justice to the experience, the gastronomic adventure that is Tetsuya’s. So instead I’ve posted below photos which I took of most of the dishes – the large photos are of the absolute star dishes, though every dish was sublime! Sorry about the poor quality :(
The wines were absolutely fantastically gorgeous as well – I highly recommend getting the accompanying wine course at $90pp (incredibly good value!), but there’s no way in hell anyone could not be a bit “bien” (as the French would say) after that many wine courses. Even Mr Black was a bit tipsy.
As I have mentioned before, poor Mr Black was born missing the seafood gene. So by request his menu was altered slightly so that he got the vegetarian option instead of the seafood courses, but didn’t miss out on the meat and poultry dishes. Here are a few of the dishes he was brought instead of seafood:
