Yuuga is a hiden gem in Surfers Paradise! It is located right on Cavill Avenue, next to the new high rise apartment hotels Circle on Cavill and the coming Hilton. Their authentic Japanese food has never failed to please me. As soon as you walk into the restaurant you’ll be greeted by a number of smiling Japanese staff and the Sushi Chefs behind the counter. Many local Japanese love to dine here as they offer a variety of lunch sets (bento boxes) ranging from $13-$20.
Today they have some Toro (aka fatty tuna) arrived from Japan! In Japan tuna is graded and priced according to fat content, with the fattiest part (tuna belly) being the most expensive. Otoro has the highest fat content, it has a light pink colour and is extraordinarily tender. Chutoro is the next grade down, darker pink colour and moderately fat. We had Sashimi Set ($15 plus $4 upgrade to Chutoro), Sushi and Sashimi Set ($15 plus $4 upgrade to Chutoro), Tempura Soba Set $13, Weekly Special Lunch Set $15 and Assorted Tempura $7. The chutoro is very fresh and tender (although not as fatty as the ones I had in Japan earlier this year) but I was very impressed with the food presentation and the price. With only $4 you get an upgrade from the dull pink coloured tuna to the luxurious tuna belly! What a fantastic deal!
