Conceived by business partners Michael Zhang and Kazuhiro Kojima, Kosaten Japanese Restaurant is a unique take on the traditional sushi train eatery that is popular in Japan. The creative dishes use the best of Tasmania’s produce wherever possible. Located in the trendy Salamanca Market precinct, the dining room has pendent lighting, moody deep tones and intimate booth seating.
From nigiri and sushi rolls to vegetarian delights, there is something for everyone on the appealing menu. Tuna salad looks as beautiful as it tastes! An artistic combination of fresh tuna, mixed leaves, carrot, radish, pumpkin, sesame seeds and sunflower seeds, it is given a little kick with wasabi dressing. Wagyu three way comprises three pieces of beef that are lightly torched so they remain succulent. Each features a different but equally tasty topping – wasabi leaf, chilli mayo and steak sauce.
PSST! The iPad ordering system is very clever, and the food is delivered by a little train – what a super-cute idea!
