Kunis Restaurant – 25 January 1997


25 January 1997, Flinders Street Station, Melbourne

On the way to meet friends at a favourite Japanese restaurant in Melbourne, Kunis.

I was introduced to Japanese food in the early 1980s by a school friend’s much older, extremely sophisticated (in my eyes) boyfriend. At the time there were only two authentic Japanese restaurants in Melbourne. Now there are dozens.

Kunis was the first Japanese restaurant I went to and is  Melbourne’s oldest having opened in 1978. It is a special event to go there even now.

    In Japanese culture, as in other Asian cultures, it is important not to lose face – this takes the concept into a different visual area. perhaps the individual was suffering from Griffin’s syndrome . 🙂
