Mobo Japanese Restaurant

Mobo Japanese Restaurant in Kangaroo Point is an eatery that prides itself on its specialties. In only a few weeks of operation, Mobo has secured plenty of return trade, with many customers coming back for a second serve of the eatery’s signature items. Here, it’s all about sushi, nigiri, sashimi and sukiyaki. Devour large and small sashimi platters or look to the signature nigiri section, where Mobo’s most-prized dishes can be found. Mobo’s best seller, the Wagyu Melt, boasts flamed slices of mouth-watering wagyu coated in a tantalising teriyaki glaze. Other winners include the Flowery Salmon (teriyaki-flamed salmon, scallop, shallots, tobiko and edible flowers), kingfish aburi and crispy chicken avocado nigiri. A five-strong selection of signature sushi rolls features the likes of crispy salmon rolls lightly fried in tempura batter, tempura-fried soft-shell crab rolls and rolls boasting tempura enoki mushroom and cucumber that has been wrapped in black rice and glazed with miso mayo. Fans of Japanese cuisine will naturally be drawn to Mobo’s sukiyaki – a Japanese-style hot pot filled with thinly sliced wagyu and vegetables cooked in the chef’s secret broth. This shareable centrepiece is best enjoyed with a clutch of satellite dishes – think yakitori skewers, ebi tempura and crispy chicken baos. The menu concludes with a selection of hunger-busting mains, including chicken katsu curry, grilled wagyu striploin and glazed teriyaki pork belly. Mobo’s beverage list is similarly trim, but still packed with plenty of variety. A selection of sake-infused cocktails, plum wine, Japanese beers (including Suntory Premium malt and malt black on tap), Japanese whisky and gin, Australian wines, and four kinds of sake are available for those that fancy a tipple.
