Yuzu Kitchen & Bar is the hotspot of the hour in the city this Autumn. The quirky ‘Kill Bill’ kung-fu themed restaurant, situated on Kloof Street, has brought modern Asian fusion cuisine to Cape Town, and taking things to another level.
Revenge may be best served cold – but ramen needs to be piping hot. I have a mild obsession with fusion foods, so my poor boyfriend gets dragged to our standard fusion restaurants often enough. When a friend of ours suggested we try this new ‘American-Japanese’ place in the trendy part of town, I’m not sure who was more delighted for a change of scenery. I don’t have any previous ramen experiences to compare it to – but the food was great. I was delighted to see a tofu ramen of the menu (although, if you’re a vegetarian, remember to request your egg to be non-Scotched if you’re a fan or to hold the egg entirely, unlike me, who forgot).
(Please note that the tofu ramen is not vegan, as udon noodles contain egg)
