quest for the best japanese - week 5 (Brisbane edition)

Last week we were lucky enough to be in Brisbane on our usual Japanese Monday.  By chance we had lunch at a Japanese restaurant at Eagle St Pier and think it definitely deserves a mention here!

Sake is a contemporary Japanese restaurant which usually leaves me a little wary.  But this place is pretty great.  The decor is stylish and modern - particularly the 'caged' tables that run through the middle of the place.  It was lunch time on a Monday so it was very quiet inside, but the service was good.

Now, the main thing is that the food was excellent!  The highlight for me were the Tonkatsu cups and the Kingfish jalapeño sashimi.   They have a good selection of small dishes to share, as well as a nice selection of mains.

All in all, it was an excellent lunch with excellent food and excellent people.  I highly recommend it!
