This month, I went to Plymouth. We had dinner at Kuku, a Japanese restaurant on Princes Street. It has a lot of good reviews on TripAdvisor, which swayed our decision making.
For starters, we had the Maki Platter, which had three types of sushi. I found the decoration a little over-the-top, especially the California Roll (not one I would try again). The other types tasted good and were well-made.
Alongside the sushi, we also had the scallops, which come with a ginger and yuzu dressing. These were delicious, and pretty big in size!
For mains, my partner had the sirloin steak with vegetables.
I went for Yaki Udon. This was delicious, and the sauce was lovely. Again, a generous portion, I was very full at the end!
All in all, a great meal. The service was professional, and they explained the menu to us. The restaurant itself is nice, although it did look like there was a sauce (?) splashed on the wall next to us that hadn’t been cleaned properly. The menus are bits of paper attached to each other; a little sticky and crumpled, but hey, you don’t visit for the menus, you visit for the food.
Earlier on in the day, we also visited Lisbon, a Portuguese cafe and restaurant. I was attracted by the pictures at the front of the building as we exited the car park. There is so much to choose from! I settled for some Portuguese tarts (probably the best I have tasted so far) and a Portuguese muffin. The prices are quite cheap for takeaway too which is another bonus. Delicious, and when I come back to Plymouth, I would definitely make a return visit!
