Kobe Jones - South Wharf

This is probably one of those restaurants that I will not normally book for a dinner out due to the known fact that a night out for a meal in one of this joints could cost an arm and a leg. But when I saw a deal that Cudo was having which is $59 per head for a nine course meal, I thought that was a reasonable price to pay compared to the original $135 per head it would normally cost.

Me and hubby arrived to a not overly busy restaurant which was a little strange as it was a Friday night. They did not have a wait staff at the entrance of the restaurant so we had to wait for the waitress to finish serving the other patrons before they notice us and got us seated. 

The waitress place our napkins on our laps and proceeded to take my vouchers and told us that our courses will start shortly. I was disappointed though for a posh restaurant they had disposable chopsticks that you get from a take away shop but I guess the view of the lights from the wharf made up for it.

Here's what we had in our nine course meal in the order they were served:

Number One Special
Crab salad stuffed with avocado, the wrapped in kingfish and baked with Kobe Jones secret sauce

 Wagyu Tenderloin Tataki
Seared and chilled, served with garlic, ginger and ponzu sauce

Volcano Roll
Oven baked scallops layered on a crab salad avocado roll, with special cream sauce and sesame seed and shallot sprinkle

Prawn and Vegetable Tempura
Two prawns with seasonal vegetables served with dipping sauce

Calamari Fritto
Pineapple cut calamari lightly fried in special panko

Rainbow Roll
Tuna, salmon, kingfish, snapper, prawn and avocado, layered on a crab salad and avocado roll, with sesame seed sprinkle

Green Tea Salmon
Warmed and seared, three hour cold smoked salmon, marinated in green tea served with watercress salad (Forgot to take picture of this course as we were too eager to sink our teeth into it)

Wagyu Hot Rock
Self cook wagyu on a hot plate, served with seasoning and two dipping sauce

Ama Ozen
Kobe Jones famous selection of dessert samplers with their trademark chocolate chopstick (we had the coffee and black sesame ice cream, green tea creme brulee and cheesecake)

We enjoyed each course but if you asked me if it was worth paying the original $135 per head I would say no as most of the ingredients were simple everyday stuff you can get and the portions were pretty small.
