Yuzu & Co
Where Brunswick Street meets Barker and Annie Streets is fast becoming a hotbed of Fortitude Valley dining, with a plethora of small bars and varied dinner spots open throughout the week. Yuzu & Co is a small but lively eatery that specialises in contemporary Japanese eats as well as some more inventive fare. Chef Kuldeep Singh has worked in many top-flight Japanese restaurants and has drawn on his experience when crafting the menu. Fans of Japanese cuisine will have plenty to gorge on at any given time, with classics such as sushi rolls, gyoza and sashimi available for snacking. If you are keen to see Japanese food taken in a new direction, we suggest that you order the popcorn tempura prawns, the duck breast with confit carrot and sautéed shitake mushrooms, a soft-shell crab burger on a charcoal bun and chicken kiev with steamed vegetables and sweet teriyaki sauce. Newly introduced is the Japanese tacos, which sees seaweed shells filled with salmon and tuna sashimi. Patrons can BYO their own drop to wash down the yummy goodness, or can enjoy Japanese liquor, sake or plum wine.
