I have certain people in my life that I trust … when they recommend a restaurant they are pretty much spot on.
The only time this has come undone is with Koko. I was part of a birthday celebration there a few years ago, and the food is lovely, but I was not as over the moon as I thought I should be considering the cost to dine there.
The second time I went I had the same reaction, I felt that the chef was doing a routine and as fresh as the food was, it was not really inspired.
So, I then happened to notice a Japanese ‘Tapas’ venue in East Brunswick … just down from the gorgeous SugarDough. I filed it away as somewhere to try at some stage, although it looked rather too groovy for my (at the time) new mum attire of comfy pants and tops with just a little bit of something on them at all times.
So when a date night possibility arose last week and we were looking for something other than the usual gastro pub offerings it struck me as the time to try Kumo out!
