My boss raves about this fabulous Japanese restaurant on a regular basis, so when we decided to head out for lunch on a sunny Saturday, I wanted to see just how amazing it is. Since relocating from Christchurch after the Canterbury earthquake, destroying their original restaurant, Tatsumi now call the heart of New Market home.
We order a variety of different dishes from both their lunch special and dinner menu and were pleasantly surprised that we were served a trio of amuse bouche.
So, let me do a quick run down of our food. Sashimi – an assortment of different types of seafood including fresh oyster, lightly seared prawns and gorgeous slices of fat tuna. The presentation is stunning and you can taste the freshest of the ingredients.
Delux lunch Set – The best value for the day, we selected three tapas (tuna sashimi, prawn tempura and agedashi tofu) along with a small bowl of rice, miso and pickled vegetables. We throughly enjoyed the light crispy batter around the prawns.
