This fascinating little fruit is a mainstay in Japanese cuisine, bringing a citrusy little kick to dishes without ever being too tart or too sweet. Forever trawling the menu for dishes boasting Yuzu, we’ve compiled some of our favourite places to get our next fix.
Here, the Yuzu special roll brings out the Yuzu’s citrus notes, and we’d be fooling ourselves if we didn’t admit to munching on their spicy BBQ wagyu and the sugarsnap tempura. With a sister restaurant called YUZU Pyrmont, city slickers can also get their fix of scrumptious Japanese during their lunch break!
1/16-22 George Street, North Strathfield
If you’re lucky enough to get a seat during their lunch service, the yuzu scallop ramen with prawn and john dory wonton is a must-try. Their à la carte offering also boasts yuzu jam to accompany a delectable serve of foie gras with miso eggplant, and the wagyu jerky with yuzu aioli is a definite crowd pleaser.
238 Crown Street, Darlinghurst
Toriciya’s impressive sake and shochu offering is a major draw card and pairs effortlessly with their comprehensive menu. The kingfish and jalapeno carpaccio drizzled with yuzu soy sauce melts in the mouth, while the kaori oven baked savoy cabbage with truffle oil sauce adds some crunch to your entrées. Be sure to try the green tea brulée, it’s utterly luxurious.
