The ‘Taste of Japan’ Festival is a two-day offering at No.5 Restaurant and Bar that is bringing the much loved tastes and smells of Japan to the heart of Alexandria.
Head Chef Emrys Jones is transporting his guests to a destination that holds a special place in his heart. Regularly travelling to Japan and meeting his wife there, Emrys has curated a five-course dining degustation showcasing Japan’s finest flavours. With international travel off the cards for a while, and Sydneysiders feeling the cabin fever, he wanted to bring an authentic international experience to the heart of Alexandria.
There will be a combination of traditional favourite dishes, including chawanmushi, tataki and yakitori. The No.5 mixologist will be shaking up delicious bottomless sakura cocktails alongside a selection of other Japanese whisky, gin, sake and yuzushu offerings.
Guests are encouraged to enjoy the relaxed atmosphere in the converted warehouse or in the outdoor courtyard area. Diners also have the opportunity to give back to the community or those who are doing it tough, by leaving a tip that will go towards a complimentary meal for two at the restaurant as part of their ‘Pay it Forward’ campaign.
