Robata Zawazawa

Robata Zawazawa

Where:
Robata Zawazawa (word of warning, website will play obnoxious music at you – fuck no!)
LG/F, 41 Wyndham Street
Central, Hong Kong

Phone:
+852 2536 9898

Price:
Set lunch is around HKD200 each.

The deal:
There’s actually not that many good Japanese restaurants in Central for lunch which aren’t a total shit show to get into (refer:  Senryo in Central which resembles an Apple Store in HK on iPhone launch day) or cost all the money ever. But Robata Zawazawa is a small place tucked up in LKF and for HKD200ish you get an appetizer selection (6 types), choice of grilled main and a small dessert to finish off. Prompt service and a totally authentic Japanese chef (ie. not a Chinese man who’s been dressed up in a Japanese outfit and taught to say ‘Irashaimase!’ poorly).  I’m always wary of Japanese restaurants which refer to themselves as ‘Robata’ (ie. code for small portions of food on sticks for mucho cash) but even I can get surprised on the upside.  I ‘gochisosama deshita’-d the chef on the way out and there was much bowing and thanking in Japanese.  I hope you guys don’t go and ruin my ability to actually get a table there now.  Oh wait, pretty much only 5 of my friends (maybe) read FYN.  Oh nooooooooooooo.

Verdict:
Fuck yeah!
