It's been almost a year since I've last seen Tracey. We were 'bum chums' a couple years back... and then we grew apart. So, graduated and working - we decided it was finally time for a girly catch up. Who could believe -she's entered the working life as a primary school teacher!
Anyways, craving some infused Japanese food; we headed towards King Street Wharf's Kobe Jones, and were led outdoors to a romantic candle-lit table for two. We sat facing the wharf and soaked in the glorious sunshine (I love daylight saving!).
The Scallop Carpaccio was amazing! Every bite was so smooth and flavoursome... the texture was soft and buttery... mmmmm...

Our second starter was the shallow-fried panko soft shell crab -which was the disappointment of the night. At least now i know i'm not a fan of breadcrumb-coated anything. Nor did I like the stale tasting potatoes...

I ordered the succulent premium dry aged Scotch fillet which was served with a miso, sansho pepper sauce. It was a giant serving... tender & pink...

And what better way to end the night than with dessert! Tracey ordered the dessert sushi with Kobe Jones' famous chocolate chopsticks, and I, without a second thought, had the green tea brulee... which hid a treasure of red bean beneath its mildly crystallised crust.

Kobe Jones probably isn't a place you go to often. The menu appeared somewhat limited... but on the other hand, it could have been pure coincidence that both the soft shell crab and salmon were served in a similar manner.
