Kudos Taste initially looks like a sushi kiosk in the arcade under Canberra House.
But on closer examination they have substantial menu of hot food, almost all the meals coming in under or on $10.
They describe themselves as “homestyle japanese cooking”.
The service appeared when I went in to be authentically Japanese with lots of “Hai!” and a bit of bowing.
After just a couple of minutes I had my meal.
The seasoning on the rice was a nice touch and very authentic. The pork was delicious (as you’d expect with any combination of pork, ginger and soy).
The salad, soaked in the pork juices, was delicious, and the other strange green things were delightfully strange and green.
(For more sub $10 lunches in Civic check the tag, if you’ve got recommendations let me know.)
