Review: Bar H (Surry Hills)

We decided to have one last fancy meal with our housemates before some of us departed for holidays, and to celebrate one of our housemate’s new job (and, sadly, relocation interstate). The chosen venue was Bar H, which has been in my wishlist for a long time and happened to be close to the footy and have a free table on a Friday night. They do Japanese fusion, and have a wonderful array of sake and wine available.

We toasted with sake and later a shiraz, and had some fish crackling, chilli, yukari as appetizer. More similar to prawn crackers than pork crackling, but tasty anyway, especially with drinks.

Alvaro and I shared the beef tartare, umeboshi plum, sea banana, a wonderful Japanese version of the French classic, and the slow cooked kurobuta pork shoulder, quandong, grilled lettuce, with a generous amount of savoury pork paired with an awesome fruity sauce.

Other dishes ordered at the table were: sakamushi clams, prawns, sake & warrigal greens; steamed pork and umeboshi dumplings, and mooloolaba bug meat, mushroom, buckwheat, soft egg, shio koji, all beautifully plated and I heard, very well executed.
