Tetsuya's is a very good and reliable restaurant that ensures everyone gets a perfect experience when they dine here. Tetsuya seems to package flavours in a such a way that amuses and appeals. A truly great restaurant. Tetsuya is a national treasure!
The best way to get a feel for the food experience you will have at Tetsuya's is simply to describe some of the dishes we were served at a recent meal.
The dinner started with a bracket of five small dishes. These were a tea and tomato soup, scallops served on the shell and garnished with lemongrass, a dish of octopus served on potato and garnished with wakame, scampi with deep fried leeks and a crab sushi.
These dishes were followed by the famous confit of Tasmanian Ocean Trout (sometimes he does it with Atlantic Salmon) cooked in extra virgin olive oil and garnished with a vibrant green parsley oil. Next we had veal served in a large white bowl with porcini mushrooms and a rich, intense broth accompanied by blanched potatoes.
A light broth accompanied spatchcock with fresh soy beans and spring onions, peas and bok choy.
We finished the meal with two desserts. An apple sorbet sitting on top of an apple jelly then a ginger crème brulee.
What more need we say!
