Add Nirvana, Radiohead and Blur to your playlist, because there’s a brand new 90s rock ‘n’ roll-inspired Japanese restaurant in the heart of Sydney’s CBD. From the same guys who brought us Indu and Mejico, Kid Kyoto is the third instalment of this legendary foodie trifecta.
The menu is all about seasonal contemporary Japanese cuisine with a rebellious edge and is inspired by the rock ‘n’ roll of the 80s and 90s. And if Mejico can serve up table-side guac (arguably the best guac in Sydney FYI) you already know Kid Kyoto is good.
A few of our initial picks from the menu are the starters of smoking salmon with wasabi pea and nori and the blackened oyster with pickled ginger, umeboshi mayonnaise and kimchi granita. Then for mains, we’re all over the black hole sun pork belly with nori jam, apple and pickled radish.
China Doll and China Diner’s Head Chef Seb Gee has also come along for the ride, so you know we mean it when we say it’s good.
