Kobe Jones: 13-course degustation

A few weeks ago the chance to feast on a 13-course degustation at a renowned Sydney restaurant presented itself one evening. How could I resist? Kobe Jones is ‘modern Japanese with a Californian twist’ and the menu did not disappoint. We started with a glass of sparkling wine while Vera read out the delectable menu.

Course 1: Number One Special – crab salad and avocado wrapped in Hiramasa kingfish and baked with secret sauce
