Yummy Japanese in Orange

Just by chance we bumped into Sam the chef from the modern Japanese Restaurant Sweet Sour Salt when we were tasting wine at the Union Bank wine store  in Orange.
Turned out he used to work at Tetsuya's in Sydney and we were lucky to get a table for an early dinner that night.

We had a fantastic meal consisting of deep-fried chilli salt zucchini chips as a compliment from the kitchen. As a starter we had free range son in law eggs and they were beautiful, the yolk still soft and gooey with a crisp skin. The dressing was sweet with lots of cashews and spring onions for a bit of a crunch. As a main, we ordered kung po chicken and Japanese pork belly salad with daikon and mint and especially the pork belly salad was divine. The fatty and tender pork belly featuring a crispy cruckling skin countered with the sweet and sour salad was a combination made in heaven. The dessert was very special too. Three different flavours of ice cream: ginger, cassia bark and cardamom, mmmh.
