Momofuku Seiobo Restaurant Review: This intimate restaurant may be in a casino building, but luck plays no part in its success. The first Momofuku in the southern hemisphere, it is gratifying to know that this is no clone. Following a current trend in Sydney, there is a tasting menu available, fourteen courses of it, at lunch and dinner. It’s full of surprises, as in the burnt eggplant with marron, or maybe caramelized pork or a dish topped with a Parmesan cloud. A meld of molecular cuisine, Japanese kaiseki and Australian invention, this inter-cuisine adventure, plus the front-row view as it happens, has diners tantalized and ultimately well-fed. Given the expanse of the menu and its flavors, the wine list has an equally interesting mix of wine, saké, beer and spirits.
