Being lost in
I ve often wondered how Ozeki
Cafe and Bar at top of Tory St
has lasted given it s not in the
heart of Courtenay Place s dining
Restaurateur Jensen Yung, who
used to own Hede, opened Ozeki
at the start of the year.
When a friend and I popped in
for Saturday dinner the place was
humming. We soon realised why.
Ozeki is a stone s throw from
several student hostels and
seemed to be the in place for
into place with bottles of cheap
bubbly in hand -- corkage is $2
person for all you can carry .
Ozeki is ideal for large groups.
The former warehouse has been
divided into several spaces,
including a large bar and function
Grey walls are offset by red
paper lanterns, floral panels,
wooden tables and comfy sofa-like
Although it was busy, a wait-
ress was happy to squeeze us in.
She was also more than happy for
us too swap our low lounge seats
for proper chairs.
Fans of Japanese food will find
familiar items on the menu --
sushi, sashimi, teppanyaki and
deep fried octopus balls.
There is also a small drinks list,
which includes Japanese beers
and sake. We opted for the sake.
Ordering food was not straight-
forward; our waitress was not flu-
ent in English.
After a fair bit of pointing at the
menu we hoped we would be get-
ting the right meals -- spring rolls
and tempura seafood for starters
and teriyaki chicken and teppan-
yaki beef for mains.
To our surprise all dishes
arrived together, and within 20
minutes of ordering.
My spring rolls were deliciously
crisp and flavoursome, but I m not
entirely sure I got teppanyaki
The menu said the teppanyaki
beef came on a sizzling iron plate,
but mine did not. It looked ident-
ical to the teriyaki chicken dish
my friend had.
However, we agreed there was a
decent amount of meat and it was
pretty tasty. The dishes came
with rice, salad and miso soup.
My friend said the tempura sea-
food -- a piece each of fish, mussel,
scallop and prawn -- was fairly
good, though the batter was quite
With everything arriving at
once, we finished dining far
earlier than expected, so ordered
another round of sake before
heading into town to continue our
The meal cost $78, including
two lots of sake.
Learning to be prepared
Wellington schools and businesses
are being encouraged to get behind
an international tsunami exercise
Pacific Wave will be carried out
in countries throughout the
Pacific, helping cities to practise
their emergency management.
On the day, Wellington City
Council will be told what time and
how big the tsunami will be.
Test tsunami alerts will be
issued from loudspeakers and
Wellingtonians can expect to hear
the national Civil Defence siren,
followed by the message:
This is a test. The next time
you hear this siren it could be a
real emergency or disaster.
Get ready to get through.
Your local council can help.
The Wellington Emergency
Management Office will also a
send test tsunami warning using
its emergency text alert service.
Mayor Celia Wade-Brown is
encouraging schools, particularly
those near the harbour and south
coast, to take part.
We don t know when a disaster
will strike but we do know this:
they can happen at any time and,
when they do, we must all be pre-
pared, she said.
Schools, kindergartens and
businesses wanting to be involved
with the exercise should contact
Wellington City Council.
To sign up for the text alerts, go to
