Amongst the culinary melting pot that is represented on Smith Street is a surprisingly dominant Japanese presence - Cocoro Japanese Pottery Cafe. As well as offering an authentic Japanese dining experience, Cocoro is a showcase of Japanese ceramics, giftware, lifestyle products and Japanese jazz. It’s all pared-back, delicate and organic - a far cry from the urban grittiness of the streetscape outside. Dishes are designed to be ordered in the traditional Japanese way of sharing a variety of subtle tastes and fine textures over some sake or plum wine. Bring a little extra spending power because you may want to take a set of ceramic tea cups home with you.
