Yukis at the Quay (Sydney, NSW)

On a special night out in the city, we landed ourselves right by the water at Yukis at the Quay, a quiet, tastefully decorated Japanese restaurant looking out across to the Sydney Opera House.  We were greeted promptly to be seated at a "candlelit" table (with candlelit in quotes because they were battery-run candles), and handed menus, by who seemed to be the owner of the restaurant.

Hmm, what to eat at a good Japanese restaurant?  Between the two of us, we got a Harbour Course (65), which included several entrees, a main, and a dessert, which happened to be Creme Brulee that night (yipee!), and the Roast Duck Breast with Hacho Miso Sauce (37).  The entrees were all good, especially the rolled asparagus with wagyu beef.  The tempura was fried well [and we had some fun eating the noodle fan] and the creme brulee was perfect!  Not too sweet, nor too rich.  But, I must say, the duck dish was the most impressive, both with presentation and flavor.  Mmm, mmm, the duck itself was incredibly tasty, as well as all the garnish on the sides that went perfectly with the duck.  Wowie, we were going to go for some dessert at the Guylian cafe, but decided against it, after such satisfying food.

Oyster, vinegar marinated fish, and seared beef

Mmm, the sashimi was fresh!
