Dining at Ginza Miyako

I was recently invited by the owners of Ginza Miyako, a Japanese/ French fusion restaurant to try their exquisite dishes for dinner one night. Despite the location being rather tucked away, there are two entrances that you can enter from, one via North Terrace, and the other is through the Stamford Plaza Hotel. 

The interior is very traditional, and diners get the chance to overlook North Tce whilst eating. You  can stare and gaze all you want, as the pedestrians outside can't see you through the elevated floor, and tinted windows. Cute place for a date, don't you think?

My sister and I got to sit in the 'special' area where you have to remove your shoes before entering the room. It certainly made the overall dining experience more enticing. 

Every time I visit a new restaurant, instead of concentrating too hard on reading the menu, I always end up asking the staff what they would recommend. We're all often more content if we know that our meal will most likely taste delicious, right? As such, we ended up selecting four popular entrees, and three mains. As for dessert, we were fortunate enough to personally have Head Chef, Kabuki Ushiro San, not only come to our table for a chat, but to also surprise us with two dessert dishes that he thought we would love. How sweet of him. 
(Orange cured ocean trout 55°C confit with fennel wake salad, carrot puree, and wasabi sour cream - $16)
(Assorted sushi)
(Assorted sashimi including Houn Tasmanian Salmon and South Australian Tuna - $19)

(Lightly seared venison served with rocket, beetroot pickles, avocado puree, homemade balsamic soy and ume (Japanese plum) sauce - $19)
(Lamb rack topped with herb persillade, served with potato mush, seasonable vegetables, and black olive sauce - $38)
(Charcoal grilled wagyu scotch fillet with potato mash, seasonal vegetables, carrot puree, and red wine yuzu (Japanese citrus) chill sauce - $49)
(Slow cooked duck breast with potato mash, glazed witlof, beetroot puree and citrus teriyaki sauce - $34)
(Mille- feuille served with rhubarb ice cream and Japanese plum wine sauce - $12)
(Creme Brûlée served with tea panna cotta, and baby rice cakes - $12)

It was my absolute pleasure to be able to indulge in such a feasting, and interestingly enough, my sister and I managed to demolish every ordered dish in a satisfying manner. Additionally, all floor members were extremely courteous. For example, the friendly chefs thoroughly explained how each dish was cooked every time they presented the meals to our table. On the other hand, the general staff were highly attentive and looked after us in a very welcoming way during our visit. I must say I had an exceptional experience and left the restaurant with a fulfilling food coma...  

Thanks for having us!

Looks like the dinner menu is more French-Fusion than the lunch I've experienced.

Your photos are beautiful :-)
