Whether in New York or Los Angeles, Momofuku restaurants have always been tricky to classify; Seiobo goes a step further, splicing the flavours of Paul Carmichael's upbringing in Barbados and family in Puerto Rico with tropical Australian produce at a gleaming corporate-Japaneseish dining counter tucked in a corner of a casino. It's a high-gloss production, and service and wine rival those at Momo's Manhattan HQ for smarts and polish. Rock-meets-reggae describes the menu as much as the soundtrack, from a play on ducana that spices up the sweet potato dumplings with "Caribbean XO" rich in habanero and salt cod, to a marron curry served with coconut bakes, sweet buns ideal for swiping through the luscious sauce. The world's premier haute Afro-Caribbean restaurant is in Sydney? Sometimes the truth is stranger than fiction. And tastier still.
