I was given the pleasure of dining at the Fuku Omakase/Teppanyaki in Mosman Park as an invited guest (Thanks Milan Rai!). It's the first time I have been invited to dine and take photos, and it was an amazing experience. It felt great to dine at a restaurant with a bunch of other bloggers and being able to take as many photos as we would like to. I had a difficult time narrowing down the photos so it will be a pretty photo-heavy post.
Fuku Omakase/Teppanyaki is owned by the same peeps who own Tsunami Restaurant just next door. I have been to Tsunami a fair few times, twice for dinner and once for a birthday function. I was always quite impressed by the environment and food, albeit on the pricier end of the spectrum. Towards the end of 2012 I heard that there was a new and more exclusive restaurant opening called Fuku next door. Other than hearing that Fuku is quite a fancy place I knew little else about it and was always interested in checking out one day when there is a special occasion. What better way to have the "Fuku experience" than being an invited guest!
Our sixth dish was Fish of the day. The fish fillet was first grilled on the teppanyaki, then placed on top of a piece of pre-seasoned lotus root. A tangy miso sauce was smothered over the fish which gave the dish a good balance of flavour. Half a baby octopus was placed just on top of the dish and blow torched to give it a smoky flavour.
Disclosure: I dined as an invited guest at Fuku Omakase/Teppanyaki, however the opinions expressed are true & honest.
