Day 6: Oritai in South Yarra

Oritai is a Japanese Fusion restaurant owned by a Japanese Chef who considers his cooking as works of fine art.

So naturally, we expected to find fineness and the attention to details here in our food. Located in South Yarra, Jackson St, this place is all that we expected and more. It's little more on the classy side and has the food to match, as well as the price.

The was the Duck with miso sauce platter.

We ordered the sashimi platter which came as this huge serving of various entre goodies, all of them beautifully done. As we gobbled them down, we slowly came to the realisation that this might be too good to be true. All this for just AUD32??!!
And the truth was revealed when the bill came. It was AUD59 instead. Apparently the waiter took the wrong order and gave us a platter of everything instead. I remember my mom always say that there is no such thing as a free lunch. Hai...
Expensive Sashimi
And unlike other Aussie restaurants which would just charge you the original AUD 32, the Japanese lady supervisor insisted on us paying AUD 59 and she did that when we were filling in the feedback form. That's some good business sense there woman.

This place was turning out to be excellent in the beginning, but it ended up average instead. Our evening did not end in such a high note, but it was a pretty good meal after all.
