Koh Ya Yakiniku – Neutral Bay
Part of Yakiniku.com.au, the group consists of Rengaya, Suminoya and Koh-Ya. What is yakiniku? It’s Japanese BBQ. Koh-ya is located in Neutral Bay and we were there for dinner this one time, best to make reservations. It was awesome.
I mean seriously, who can say no to unlimited amounts of BBQ meat?
During out 1st visit, we started with just 3 serves of the ox tongue. Just 3. We were being good.
Even though prawns and I have a very love-hate relationship going on, here is a foodporn pic of 4 prawns spooning each other.
We did order quite a lot of meat and some greens for 3 people, but really, it is just meat and greens. We can go through quite a lot of that can’t we? Carb free dinner.
Seafood! Mussels and squid and octopus! We ripped the mussels out of it’s shell to grill it. I’m not sure if you are able to grill it with it’s shell and all, but we just ripped it out anyway.
Individual serves of garlic butter prawns, butter mushrooms and butter corn! I love my corn and mushrooms.
Food porn shot on top of a grill, mostly seafood. Look at those octopus squirm.
Ox tongue! More ox tongue! Ox tongue on a grill top!
Sliced beef, chicken and some onions. Red meat is good for you.
Now if you are after something a little more “rare” here’s some blue tartar, or yukke, with raw egg.
And cold soba noodles. What is a meal without carbs? And noodles are better than rice. There are other options such as curry rice and plain steamed rice.
Revisited during lunch hour. I believe that most of the menu items are the same, except there daily special isn’t available at that time. No matter, We started by ordering 10 servings of ox tongue. Wouldn’t have it any other way. Just 10 serves, straight up, between the 5 of us, we finished all of them.
And lots of meat. There’s 5 of us hungry people! And we just completed 3 hours of archery. We deserve some meat!
Another revisit post:
Outdoor dining isn’t too bad either. We brought a cute little kitten along (in a cage) for dinner, and the staff was kind enough to sit us outside for dinner and not kick us out.
We ordered 1 serve of the tuna sashimi. It looks really sad and lonely. Didn’t last very long on the plate.
