Yayoi Japanese Teishoku Restaurant

When someone asks me what my favourite cuisine is I usually reply “Oh well I love thai and italian. That’s too boring, isn’t it?” However, recently my reply has become different. I’m increasingly turning to Japanese as my go-to dining choice as well as Saturday night take-in. Why? I can’t quite put my finger on…

Governor’s Table @ Museum of Sydney
