J's Surf and Turf, Brighton

133 Were St Brighton VIC 3186 - (03) 9592 6500
Open Wed-Sun 12pm-3pm, 5:30pm-10pm

My good pal invited me for a buffet at J Surf & Turf in Brighton last night (just a few hours ago, actually). We got lost for a while but managed to find our way eventually.

[For the geeks, all pics are with the Zuiko 14-35 without flash, since the ambient light was more than sufficient for this purpose]

The oysters are pre-ordered when you book, but as soon as you sit down at the table, you pick some other dishes from the menu.

And the oysters arrive at the table.. all 2 dozen of them.

Squeezing the lemons over the oysters

The oysters are really fresh. They cost 10 bucks for half a dozen in our local supermarkets.

Next is the shashimi /sushi platter. I must say the sushi could taste better, so we didn't order it again.

Tempura prawns, lovingly coated in batter and deep fried until its light and crispy.

Sashimi - fresh, juicy and marvellous. I haven't had any in the past one year or more !

Okonomiyaki - octopus balls. There wasn't much of an octopus taste though.

Now this is a first. Grilled egg plant

The aftermath of the oysters.

Sashimi round 2

Udon (japanese eel) round 1

Beef with salad. A unique taste, but its good.

Gleefully digging into the food

Tempura round 2

Udon round 2

Japanese tofu. Didn't really leave an impression on me but we finished it anyway.

Japanese potato cake. Something like hash browns, but sweeter.

The last dish - Shashimi round 3 !

You can almost savour the freshness of the shashimi. Its lovely!

For dessert, some ice cream, fruits and sweets.

A meal well worth it. No more shashimi and tempura for a year for me... :)

Wow.. these shots are really making me hungry and missing Melbourne. I used to fly a lot to Melbourne. Nice ambient light shots.
