This is just a quick, bento-sized update to say how much Will and I like Ume in Surry Hills. It’s a new Japanese place run by Kerby Craig (The Bridge Room, Tetsuya, Koi) and Hiroko Muranishi (who, like her chef husband, also worked at Koi).
It’s eternally hanami-watching time, thanks to the cherry-blossom mural and there are lots of inspired dishes – the baked pumpkin with sweet dengaku glaze and toasted hazelnuts is particularly great, as is the pork belly with green beans, sweet potato, karashi and dashi; and the desserts are done with flair; think dark chocolate terrine with ginger and rose-petal ice cream and whipped matcha or roast persimmon with Christmas bush honey, native violets and roast tea jelly.

You make this place sound so intriguing.. might pop in 🙂
oooooh it definitely looks like a place I need to get myself to!
What is this non available photo business?? Why taunt us so! :< Sounds quite good actually, I’m a little tired of Japanese but this place sounds quite unique.
went there the other day – food was superb but we found it overpriced for the small amount of food that you actually get. we had 4 dishes and a dessert and paid just under $100 – and we both weren’t full! hopefully they can pile a bit more on the plates in the future…
