Nobu is my all time favourite restaurant, I just love everything about it – the ambience, decor, service and above all – the food. (We went to the official opening with special guest Robert De Niro back in March – check out the post here.)
The occasion was a birthday catch up with two amazing friends who I worked with over ten years ago. Our friendship has seen us through stints in Japan and Dubai and somehow we have maintained our special connection and always manage to pick up where we left off. I’m so lucky to have these fabulous and funny girls in my life.
My favourite Nobu dish is yellowtail sashimi with jalapeños; it’s an explosion of citrus, coriander and soy with the perfect amount of jalapeño heat. I could quite happily go to Nobu for this dish alone. It’s so unbelievably good that one dish wasn’t enough, we had to have two!
I also love how Nobu dishes are designed for sharing, this is my favourite way to eat – to enjoy a little bit of everything. Next up was a creamy, spicy prawn tempura, pork belly miso caramel and beef toban-yaki – all deliciously divine.
We also indulged in dessert – we shared the miso cappuccino which was a decadent blend of chocolate brûlée, chocolate coffee crumble, cappuccino foam and vanilla ice cream. On our previous visit we had ordered the Ichigo and decided that we couldn’t possibly pass it up – it’s just too good. A crunchy, icy yuzu granita on top of strawberry pannacotta and lychee – it’s a tasty, textural sensation.
Nobu Perth overlooks the recently revamped pool area and the view is just stunning – very Miami come Las Vegas. The bar is also a great spot for cocktails with a sensational amber light pendant feature.
If you haven’t experienced Nobu yet, then make it your next special occasion destination – you won’t be disappointed.
