We have recently moved to Sydney from Tokyo with previous stays in Singapore and New York. We have had good luck locating excellent modern Oz, but little luck with the cuisines of other countries. We would appreciate advice on the following:
-best "money is no object" Chinese restaurant. We've been spoiled in Singapore by Li Bai, Imperial Treasures and numerous other top places.
-sushi bar the Japanese business community uses. If there is none, perhaps someone knows where the Japanese community lives, as there are likely to be a Japanese food store and a few restaurants there. Are there any authentic yakatori-ya, izakaya, soba-ya, okonomoyaki-ya in Sydney?
-traditional Spanish tapas with a good selection of sherries
-Korean table top BBQ
-NY-style Jewish deli (kosher-style franks, pastrami etc.)
-a traditional brasserie
-proper Singaporean/Malaysian food, such as chili crab (think Jumbo or Long Beach), roti paratha, Hainan chicken rice, nasi lemak, nonya dishes
-a fishmonger selling gindara, top-quality ikura and nama uni, o-toro and chu-toro.
-a NY bagel shop
Thanks in advance.
