So it has been a while since my last post, things had been a little busy over the past few months. I know, I originally promised a post from my trip to South Carolina, that one is still coming. Until I get that post up I have a quick post from my last visit to Newtown.
Recently I met with a friend for lunch in Newtown and we decided on Japone. I had been to Japone before but did not have my camera with me. So I thought that this second visit would be a great opportunity to get some pictures of the food. The food at Japone Sushi is what I would consider Japanese Tex-Mex fusion. They used a lot of Mexican ideas and flavours; the Sushi Tacos are an example where the two flavours mix, other menu items have Jalapenos to spice them up. Their take on sushi is different that most other places, one item which I did not have, but witnessed delivered to another table was the Sashimi platter. The platter has flashing led lights in the serving bowl lighting up the food from beneath.
I forgot to note the prices down, so you will have to deal with pictures only 🙂
Spicy Salmon tacos with avocado –
I was a little worried about having avocado with salmon, there was no need to be worried. These were amazing, the cooling avocado was offset by the chilli mayo and really brought out the creaminess of salmon.
Popcorn prawns –
Small, bit size pieces of prawns, in crispy batter with a citrus glaze(probably yuzu, but I couldn’t be sure).
Spicy Edamame –
Chilli butter dressing on edamame.
Yaki Ika –
Grilled whole squid, covered in a sweet soy based sauce. Keeping the skin on the squid gave it a great initial crunch while still staying soft.
Golden Dragon Rolls –
These rolls are Japone’s pseudo speciality. Prawn, chicken, avocado, chilli mayo and salmon roe.
