A hidden Japanese treasure at The Rocks. The staff were very friendly and accommodating and the food was superb. See the pics below.

Pork Maki
Very delicious Shallots wrapped with juicy strips of pork... YUM!!! this plate was empty in a matter of seconds!.

Prawn and Vegetable Tempura
The one thing I love about tempura is that when its fried enough, you can basically just eat the whole prawn including the tail.

Shigiyaki
I normally don't eat eggplant out of choice, but this time I had to try and I certainly wouldn't mind eating it again. Very nice.

Teriyaki Chicken
YUM! you can't go wrong with teriyaki chicken, its yummy as always.

Wafu Steak
Very juicy, tender and tasty, definitely something to try, try and try again.

Wagyu
I'd say the same as the Wafu, these two should always be ordered when eating in, along with other orders on the side.

By the way.. as it is a hidden treasure, here is the map so you can find it ;)

OK. Keeping this one simple. Since I've gone out to eat most of this food, I will sit back and let you browse through the photos.

It is quite interesting being the first customer's in a restaurant, particularly when they have just opened for dinner. The one thing that fascinates me is when the staff are preparing the ingredients for the dishes. Watching some of the staff preparing each ingredients makes me appreciate the amount of effort that are put into creating the wonderful dishes on their menu.

Based on my girlfriends research it is ideal to reserve rather than rock up unannounced as Red Spoon can get pretty busy as soon as it starts its evening session. So we reserved a table for two and found out soon enough that more customer's had started arriving around 7:00pm. BE SURE TO RESERVE!.

Here is what we had ordered...
Pandang Chicken

Softshell Crab (i love softshell crab yum!)

Braised Pork Belly (Don't you hate how somethings just tastes too good to miss that you end up eating it anyways.. YUM!)


For drinks, we just had coconut juice, a little treat to spoil ourselves.

What an amazing treasure to find when traveling to work! Somewhere local, easy to get to and with lots of quality products at reasonable prices. On our first visit, we were able to talk to Chef Kurt. Since then, we've been returning everyday from Wednesday to Sunday, and without fail, he has always been there to greet us with a big smile. He is one heck of a morning person!


We discovered that every Sunday between 10am - 1pm, they whip up something that is not on their regular menu, and boy is it delicious... When it was brought to us, the people at the next table couldn't help themselves and had to ask the waitress what it was.
Chorizo Roll, served on a toasted buttered bread roll, with tomatoes and topped with chimichurri.

The Chorizo Roll was sooo good we had to have some to take away..


We noticed that the queues are heaps longer during the weekends (both Saturday & Sunday). but the staff are not fazed and continue serving us with a smile.

Dropped by this restaurant on the 9th of Feb 2009, where all you can eat Full Rack of Ribs is only $18.50. Only if I knew about this place before my stomach decreased its consumption.. bummer. Nevertheless I ate as much as I could, including my girlfriend's left over ribs. YUM!!

Almost forgot to take the starting photo.
Upto my girlfriend's unfinished 3 pieces of ribs. When the waitress then asks, "should I tell the chef to heat up another rack?". At first I thought, wouldn't it be nice to eat another rack of ribs. But I unfortunately had to decline as my belt had to be adjusted after I finished my rack of ribs.

Finally, all gone!
