Rk San Contemporary Japanese Restaurant Overview

Residing on a cosy corner block in Sydney’s trendy suburb of Surry Hills, is Rk San Contemporary Japanese Restaurant. A modern fitout matches the menu with stylish lines, an energetic atmosphere and an east meets west conceptualisation, making for a space to enjoy innovative Japanese fare and lively cocktails. Visually stunning dishes are plated with attention to detail as seen in smaller morsels of fresh nigiri delights like the seared ocean trout belly with seafood oil, Kewpie mayonnaise and tobiko or perhaps a makimono sushi roll of crispy kaarage chicken, cucumber and kuro tenkasu. For the main affair, opt for an Rk San classic cigar - sashimi grade diced tuna in a pastry shell with nori and malto ash, accompanied by a sake shot and paired well with a side of tempura popcorn prawns.
