Location: Riverside at Crown
Cuisine: Modern Japanese

Decided to check out Aperitivo Fridays at Nobu's bar! We had lots of sake, cocktails and plum wine and this came with complimentary tapas.

Edamame to start!

Whitefish Sashimi with dried miso and sushi

Everything you would expect. Whitefish sashimi had a bit of an Assam Laksa flavour to it which I really liked.

Beef Toban Yaki (on skewers)
Black cod with miso (on spoons)

The black cod with miso was amazing. Great balance of flavours: salty yet sweet, crisp skin, soft flesh, just a hint of sourness. Mmmmm

The beef toban yaki was delicious. Very tender. Strong flavours that I couldn't quite make out. It may have been some soy sauce? Meat was soft and tender. Cooked to perfection.

Hokusetsu Onigoroshi Devil Killer (Cold)

Tasted quite dry and clean. VERY strong.


Overall Impression: 7/10
Worthwhile if you're planning to have drinks anyway since the drinks are pretty pricey. Lovely ambience and great service.
