Italian, Japanese

Lumi Dining – Pyrmont

 

Japanese and Italian are two of my favorite types of food , the idea of a fusion of the two sounded interesting but I was not sure how they would go together. However after trying it out at Lumi Dining I am defiantly a fan and at $95 for the 8 course menu with matching wines $80 its really good value for food at this level.

The service was laid back but still professional and the waiters had a good knowledge of the food. A couple of the courses were served up by one of the chefs which I thought was cool.  All the food was excellent with interesting flavors and textures along with some beautiful presentation.

Lumi defiantly deserves the two hats they were recently awarded at the Sydney Morning Herald Good Food Guide awards. I dont often return to a restaurant shortly after going there once however I see another meal here for me in the near future.

Chawanmushi – I dont like Chawanmushi  I find the combination of the egg custard with a fishy/soy taste not to my liking. This however is an  Italian  take on Chawanmushi with the fishyness replaced with Parmesan cheese making it top dish for me and a perfect way to start off a meal like this.

Beetroot , black seaseme , cream – this one missed the mark for me, salty beetroot topped with a sauce and cream.

Ravoli , guyere cheese , porcini butter – my favorite dish of the meal! This ravoli was amazing so much flavor and the mixture of textures makes it a perfect dish. I wish I could have a main sized portion of these.

    Every dish looks so exquisite in plating. The spanner crab with kohlrabi looks exceptionally elegant.

      Yes for sure they all looked so good and had the taste to go along with it too:)

    Japanese and Italian are my favourite cuisines too! It’s great that so many restaurants are adopting fusion cuisines now. That gruyere ravioli does look quite delicious, as does the mouth-watering lamb rib!

      Fusion cuisine can be great when done well! The ravioli was my favorite dish of the lot
