It’s no secret that I am a massive fan of Kobe Jones (having blogged twice before already) and am so happy that I can be a part of their birthday celebrations. I still remember the first time I visited them all the way back in 2005 and was blown away by their cooking techniques and flavour combinations. Although some fault them on their price, you don’t visit King Street Wharf for a low-budget meal and each one of my visits has been a great experience.
One of the many restaurants lining the classy King Street Wharf is Kobe Jones, an upmarket Japanese fusion restaurant with a black, red and gold themed decor facing Darling Harbour. We had visited Kobe Jones earlier on in the year after purchasing one of their vouchers and tonight we returned for a similar deal, lured by the promise of more mouthwateringly tasty volcano rolls and other fusion delicacies.
We are seated at a table next to their showy teppanyaki bar, facing a window which gives us a nice view of the wharf and the service is quite prompt as they take our drink orders. We are dining in a group of 6 tonight and we order a mix of hot green tea, a cocktail, beer and a lemon lime and bitters – it is only when we receive our bill at the end that we realise how overinflated the prices of their drinks are ($6 for a LL+B? Really?!).
