Gumshara Ramen – Sydney CBD, Japanese Restaurant Review

Gumshara Ramen

So if you talk to any one of my friends, they’ll tell you that I have a strange fascination with all things Italian. Mostly food, though it does extend beyond that! Now I’ve always told them that I must have been Italian in my past life, but going by the sheer number of Japanese restaurants I’ve frequented, I’m beginning to think that … Continue Reading

Ippudo – Sydney CBD, Japanese Restaurant Review

Ippudo

Funny thing happened on my trip to Japan last year. No matter what the night entailed – be it dinners and deserts, izakaya, karaoke while eating honey chocolate ice cream loafs, whatever – I always found myself finishing the night off with a nice bowl of ramen from one of the many Ichiran restaurants. It’s like a Japanese version of the … Continue Reading

Sushi Samurai – Pyrmont, Japanese Restaurant Review

Sushi Samurai

It’s been such a long time since my last blog post (sorry)! I’ve just become so busy with work and life lately that I’m finding it really difficult to continue with my periodic restaurant reviews. So instead of abandoning it altogether – like I have the last several months – I’ve decided to at least post the photos of my eating endeavours, and … Continue Reading

Yume Sushi – Gladesville, Japanese Restaurant Review

yume-sushi-gladesville-3397

The origins of Yume Sushi Gladesville – nestled amongst a variety of restaurants along Victoria Road – goes as far back as 2006 when the head chef and owner, Hyun (Daniel) Cha, opened his first Japanese Restaurant in the Imperial Arcade in Sydney’s CBD. Since then, Daniel has opened and ran the very popular Yume Sushi in Drummoyne, followed by Yume Sushi … Continue Reading

Mino Sushi & Sake – Willoughby, Japanese Restaurant Review

Mino - Sashimi

On a freezing Friday night, after wrapping up another crazy-busy week at work, my mates and I crossed the Bridge and headed over to a tiny Japanese restaurant located in the suburb of Willoughby. Mino, which has been around for the while in the suburb of Mosman, has only recently opened up in Willoughby. From the outside, Mino has a … Continue Reading

Sushi Hotaru – Sydney CBD, Japanese Restaurant Review

Sushi Hotaru - Sydney CBD

For a few months now, my work colleague had been telling me of this mythical Japanese restaurant, in Sydney’s CBD, where you could get plate after plate of fresh sushi for only $3 each. That’s right, $3 per plate. Bollocks! At first I didn’t believe him, but then he educated me on their unique business model where if you carry … Continue Reading

Daikichi Ramen – Haymarket, Japanese Restaurant Review

IMG_0975

One of things I love about Chinatown in Sydney’s CBD is the sheer number of restaurants available for you to dine at. No matter what night of the week, there is always something open. Where it gets tricky, though, is figuring out which restaurants are good and which ones to skip. And the best way to do that – apart … Continue Reading

Sushi Rio – Sydney CBD, Japanese Restaurant Review

Sushi Rio - Tuna Nigiri

Sushi Rio is located on the southern end of Sussex Street in the Sydney CBD. Positioned right on the corner at Liverpool Street, the restaurant is adorned with large glass window panes and prominent ‘SUSHI RIO’ signage sitting behind them. The fittings are a beautiful mix of dark granite, deep blacks, brushed aluminium, combined with a striking large chandelier that makes … Continue Reading

Ju Ju Japanese Tavern – Kings Cross, Restaurant Review

Ju Ju Kings Cross - Salmon Sashimi

The simplest things in life can often be the best. One simple word, repeated twice and you’ve got one of my favourite Japenese Restaurants in Sydney! It’s none other than Ju Ju Japanese Tavern! Situated in the center of Kings Cross, it is truly amazing the difference in the environment when you walk down the stairs into the restaurant. While … Continue Reading

Sushi-Ya – Chatswood, Japanese Restaurant Review

Sushi-Ya Chatswood

Sushi-Ya is located on the outer fringes of Chatswood’s primary shopping district on Victoria Ave. Though there are plenty of eateries to choose from along the main strip, Sushi-Ya is worth visiting if you’re after some tasty sushi. We ordered an assortment of sushi and nigiri rolls, as well as some Karage Chicken to share. The sushi was nice and … Continue Reading
