It’s been a while since my last visit to Kibo. They are a modern Japanese restaurant which is popular among larger groups celebrating birthdays or other milestones.
We came here to grab a few bites and get some drinks in the evening.
A pitcher of Sapporo comes with frosted and chilled mugs. Sapporo is my preferred beer to go with Japanese food as it balances the flavours very well.
Sake is my friends drink of choice. Cold sake comes in a cute little dispenser.
Kibo Ball has Whiskey, Melon liquer, and Peach Schnapps. An easy drink shooter and they have a good deal for 5 for $20.
Aburi Block Sushi has pressed rice, salmon and their chef’s signature sauce. A very saucy item, but of course it’s not as good as Miku’s version.
Ika sugatayaki is a grilled and marinated whole squid. Served with a lemon and a mayo sauce. THis was pretty good and an easy item to share.
Assorted Tempura is decent here too. A few pieces of yams and prawns with a dipping sauce.
Short Ribs are marinated and grilled. Tender and not chewy at all.
Overall, the food is decent, but a lot of people come here for drinks and a few bites in the evening.
