A Funny Thing Happened on the way to the Australian Restaurant!

Mac and I had a great adventure planned for Saturday night.
We were headed into Stuttgart to eat at the Australian restaurant.
We had heard they had crocodile and kangaroo on the menu.
We were very disappointed to find that after 12 year's the Sydney's Australian Restaurant had closed.
My heart was set on this adventure but, Mac wisely informed me that the
next adventure is always around the corner.

We ended up in Kikuya Japanese Restaurant!
Kikuya – Japanese Restaurant
located at Calwer Str. 31
70173 Stuttgart
Phone: 0711/504 474 24
This is a lovely little restaurant.

You can sit here on the seats or

at the bar with the "kaiten" conveyor belt.

Here I am removing my shoes to sit with the other guests at the table.

Oh no, Chopsticks!  Nevermind, since I have not master the use of these items I am not above stabbing my food if need be!!

This is the chef with 30 years experience.
Have a look at his shoes.....I know I wouldn't be able to walk in them.

We started with a lovely avocado and cucumber salad.
I have no idea what kind of a sauce was over it but it was very tasty.

I had the sushi plate which, was excellent.

Here is where I'd normally show you Mac's food but he was so excited about his tempura shrimp and fried fish, soup and sushi that he forgot to take the picture.
Imagine?!  So instead we will show you the friendly staff and a close up of the conveyor belt.

Mac asked for dessert and the waitress recommended Daifuku
which means "Great Luck"
It is a sweet confection stuffed with
sweetened red bean paste made from azuki beans. 
Mac loved this but, this was not my favorite of the evening.

However; their homemade ice cream was very nice.
Although it wasn't the adventure we had in mind it was a wonderful, fun evening.
If you are looking for something different to do with kids or "big kids" in Stuttgart
give Kikuya a try.
