I was lucky enough to be invited to Fuku's soft opening. I brought Joe with me to experience this exclusive meal.
It is a 20 people seating Omakase/Teppanyaki. Only takes internet bookings. A lot of SAKE.
There are more in the basement.... 0_0"
That night, I was lucky enough to try one of the best Sake (most expensive in Fuku) generously shared by one of the other customers at the soft opening.
The Sake is so smooth... it is apparently a pure rice sake.
Normally I will go wow that's strong! But I had a sip of this, and I didn't say that!
Here is the sake list. Just look for the biggest number! :D
Don't forget.. the bottle is HUGE ~ 1.8L!! In fact, all of them are 1.8L bottles.
Anyway, these were the items on the Teppanyaki menu that night. Degustation style.
Sashimi @ Sushi
Toro, salmon, anago, sashimi- Tuna, Salmon and Kajiki
Tsubugai and Octopus, Lobster meat and avocado

Quail is from Hunter Valley, the largest of its kind. According to the chef, it was confit for 24 hours and grilled using specially imported Japanese charcoal.
Japanese scallop and Jumbo Prawn with uni butter.
