Lunch at Mikuni

C says:

2013 has flown by, and before we know it, our FAR Card will be expiring. Before it does, we had to try lunch at Mikuni, since 50% off a $70 set is pretty reasonable.

Of course, we also decided to splurge on some sashimi, and ordered the toro, kanpachi, hotate and mekajiki. This was pretty good, with the hotate in particular being very sweet and creamy, but I don't think I would have paid full price for this.

I ordered the bone-in pork robatayaki set lunch, and A had the Australian beef set. The pork was far superior. The pork was lightly smoked, and had just enough fat to give it lots of flavour, and some lean layers to balance it out.

The beef was very disappointing. It was a classic example of bland, tasteless beef that's all too common nowadays. It was cooked to a perfect medium rare, but it had no flavour or character.

Suffice to say that without the FAR Card, there's no way we'll be coming back here.

Good, but totally not worth the price.
