Dinner with friends at Orizuru earlier this month. It was alright, but not amazing - mainly it just made me pine for the quality of sushi that I am used to in Melbourne or Sydney. The restaurant itself has had a bit of a makeover since the last time I was there (which was ages ago), and the servings seem smaller.
Soft-shell crab sushi. It felt like there wasn't enough batter on the crab. I wish more places in Hobart had SSC on their menu.
Vegetable tempura. This was great, nicely crisp.
Seaweed salad. I adore seaweed salad, and this was up to scratch, but it was a teeny tiny serving in a small bowl - more seaweed would have been preferable to the unnecessary lettuce/carrot garnish.
Chirashizushi. The seafood was fantastic, the eggs and rice underneath were uninteresting.
The dinner box that a friend had, which again seems smaller than it used to be.
Despite my comments above, I did enjoy the meal although that's likely to be partially (if not wholly) due to the company we were with. I came away from it feeling a bit poorer and still a bit hungry (J and I shared the first four dishes pictured).
