My love for Japanese cuisine is well know to my readers and this time it too me to a place I wanted to visit for quite some time – YUZU, Nehru Place.
Visited here for lunch and this time around it was just me, myself and I to enjoy the food and company. The entrance is build in the traditional style; upon entering – you are greeted by a soft contemporary interiors with touch of traditional added for a good measure. Sake bar is pretty prominent and you would find it stocked with various varieties of sake and the regular selection of booze.
And now what we all have been waiting for – the food!
It started with a salad but by the end – it foster into a full six course meal with sake(hic).
Steamed spinach in Citric sesame dressing salad was the first thing I ordered; it would definitely leave you in awe. So much detailing and effort goes in the decoration – you’ll not want to destroy this piece of art.
Chicken cutlet (Chicken nan ban) – super crispy outer with juicy chicken inside, topped with egg mayo. It seems very familiar on the pallet and the egg mayo compliments the chicken. Two ways was sushi I opted for – it’s tempura prawn with Tuna salsa on the top; it’s another dish that is so beautifully presented that you would definitely click a pic before enjoying it.
Going by the chef’s recommendation the next course was Duck gyoza – perfectly crispy on the outside and served with chilli oil. The duck just add that next dimension to the dish and works perfectly to excite the taste buds. Quinoa bowl with mince chicken came loaded with exotic veggies and an egg (you see a theme here) along with chef’s special spicy sauce – it was all mixed by my side and was recommended to eat it while it’s hot.
By this time I was so full that I could not possibly eat another morsel but then I saw passion fruit sorbet on the menu – and it was the best decision; absolutely favorite of mine now (and have to stop myself from ordering another round).
In the drink department tried the sakemule – Moscow mule but with sake and green tea; surely a refreshing drink!!!
This ends my six course meal at the YUZU and is absolutely amongst the top places to visit for some Japanese delicacies in my opinion.
