It Just Has To Be Delicious

We visited Tsunami on Saturday night – it’s one of a few restaurants on Glyde Street in Mosman Park. It’s quite large inside with seating at the front and back and some outdoor seating too with pretty fairy lights. We were seated in the back section which was quite dimly lit.
The menu is interesting – a selection of sharing dishes, hot and cold, sushi, sashimi, hot stone dishes and hotpots. The menu also indicates that some dishes are ‘not recommended’ and just on the menu because people ask for them, which is a bit of an unusual approach.
We ordered a low alcohol yuzu highball to start – a lovely citrus drink with a hint of alcohol.

tsu 1

We ordered five dishes from the menu – first to arrive was the mixed tempura. This was really delicious – prawns, mushroom, sweet potato and seaweed, beautifully fried with the lightest batter and a great ponzu dip.

tsu 2

Next came the spicy tuna roll, probably the best spicy tuna roll I have tasted with quality minced tuna inside, aburi tuna on top and nice ginger, scallion, and avocado flavours.

tsu 3

Next came the marinated black cod – a very yummy dish, but not easy to share, and not a lot of food for $22.

tsu 4

We also had miso soup, which I did not photograph – it had a nice depth to it and lots of seaweed and tofu to enjoy.
Then came the lamb ribs, one of the highly recommended dishes. It was okay, but nothing really special. The ribs had a membrane on them which was not pleasant to eat, but the meat was nice and tender and the capsicum puree tasted good.

Then we waited, and waited and waited… The wait staff seemed to ignore us for a very long time and after a few attempts to attract their attention we eventually managed to get a waiter to replace our water bottle. It was more than 30 minutes before our last dish arrived, which was strange considering that the meal had been well paced up to this point.
We waited patiently for our Ishiyaki volcanic rocks stone grill, and when it finally arrived we asked the waiter to replace our plates which were dirty with the previous dishes. He took them away and never came back ! The meat on the stone grill was scallops and wagyu but it had been put on the rock in the kitchen, so by the time it got to our table the scallops were hard and rubbery and the meat had stuck to the stone. There was no oil or anything to lubricate the meat. The wagyu wasn’t very tasty and the whole thing was a disappointment. Trying to share rice and potato salad with no share plates was difficult.

We didn’t hang around for dessert. Nobody asked us if we enjoyed our meal. It was a real shame – it started off with so much promise, but ended up not being worth our 45 minute car journey to get there.

Samsons Paddock, Mosman Park

Samsons Paddock Menu, Reviews, Photos, Location and Info - Zomato

We chose Samson’s Paddock on a bit of a whim. I received an email to tell me that it was included in the Entertainment Book, and the pictures looked nice, so I booked. It is in Glyde Street, Mosman Park – an interesting building with comfy armchairs, an upper deck and lots of nooks and crannies. We were seated on a high shared table – which I didn’t mind too much as we had booked fairly late, given the choice I prefer a regular height table.
Samson’s serve every drink that you could imagine, and also craft beers – we chose our favourite Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc wine – and had a nice variety called Lone Goat. The menu has tapas style sharing dishes and bigger dishes too. We went for the tapas style. The first dish we chose was panko crumbed whiting and prawn with a daikon salad and spicy aioli dip. The prawns and fish were good quality, a nice size, and everything on the plate tasted good. The salad was nicely coated with dressing – a very nice dish to start.

Next came wagyu rib fingers with kimchi. These were the star of the meal – beautifully spiced, boneless, rich, melt in the mouth – full of flavour and very very moreish.

sp 2

Third we had a citrus salad with oranges, radish and cucumber. It had a nice selection of different oranges, but I would have liked some more slices. Again, every leaf was coated in dressing and it was a salad that had been prepared with care.

sp 3

Next came a confit duck leg with kasundi (an Indian tomato relish), ginger and cabbage. Again, presented and prepared with care, the duck was melting and tasty and everything on the plate went well together.

sp 4

We did choose another dish, but it was so tasty that we didn’t have time to take a photo. We chose a cheeseboard with brie – it arrived with fruit bread, grapes, figs, and craisins. The brie was perfectly ripe and oozy but the bread was a little stale and I would have preferred some fresher slices.
All in all with our $34 Entertainment book discount, it was a lovely meal and we will definitely be returning.

Good Things Cafe, Mosman Park

Good Things is a cafe set in a parade of shops on leafy Wellington Street in Mosman Park. We arrived for breakfast on a Sunday morning and felt that the cafe had a really good vibe with seating inside and out. It’s big, clean and airy, and pet friendly – they happily provide a bowl of water for dogs.
We started with a coffee while perusing the menu. Wow the coffee is really good, with beans from Micrology coffee roasters. I chose an iced soy coffee and my partner had a soy flat white – both delicious.

The menu has a slight Korean influence with items like Kimchi and sweet potato fritters, as well as some breakfast favourites such as muesli, hotcakes, eggs and some really healthy looking bowls – The Hulk contains avocado, peas, mint, pickles red onion, whipped feta, seeds and sourdough.
Eventually I plumped for the Chilli scrambled eggs with Korean sambal, soy caramel bacon, crispy shallots and roti. This was a very tasty plate of food. On it’s own the bacon was a bit sweet for my tastes, but combined with the eggs and roti, it was really good. I also had a side of kale.

My partner chose the Weekend Waffles with southern fried chicken, bacon, chilli,
butterscotch and waffle. Again, he felt that the butterscotch was sweet, but including all of the elements in each mouthful tasted really nice and it was a dish that got better and better as he ate it.

There was a board of lunch specials which looked really tempting:

We really liked Good Things. The staff are lovely, the coffee amazing, the food quirky and tasty, and the environment clean and bright. They play some pretty good chilled music too. I loved everything about this cafe.
