Woodridge Station Markets

September 28, 2014

My favorite markets at the moment. Lots of farmer stalls but the uniqueness is the long row of various food outlets. There’s African, Thai, Japanese, New Zealand.

A shot with Tia, my yam farmer. She’s still got a little stock left of the beautiful white yam we used for the yamakake ramen but coming to the end of the season. She has sweet potato, cassava and purple yam at the moment. Picture is us with her purple yam which is very similar taste to the white except for the color.

African BBQ. 2.50 a stick for humongous tender chunks of beef tongue. The seasoning is also so so good!

Thai Tom Yum noodle soup. $7.00







September Dinner Special – Wagyu Roast

September 6, 2014

和牛ローストビーフ $13.50



Wagyu Blade Roast with Citrus Soy $13.50

We got some good wagyu blade from our butcher, Australian Halal Butcher so we will be serving this for dinner during Septmeber.  Rare seared and finished in the sous vide.  The cut is a realtively chewy bit but the flavour of the meat is so so good compared to a more tender cut.  Burst of umami each chew. Flavoured with homemade ponzu and olive oil.  Garnished with beautiful microherbs from our veggie patch!

Smokey Ajitama only at the Night Noodle Markets

July 15, 2014

Working on the trial of the limited topping available only at the Night Noodle Markets. Turned out superb! Looks the same but taste the smokiness of this egg infused in hickory and smoked bonito brine. Feeling excited and a bit nervous for our first pop up event starting this Thursday.


Good Food Month Party at Kwan Brothers

July 2, 2014

Brisbane Good Food Month launch party at Kwan Brothers. The bao was really nice. With the task of catching an early train to the Gold Coast where family awaits i was not feeling committed to mingling like a good partygoer should (or truth of the matter perhaps simply getting too old for loud music…)

Sampled all the food, said hello to a few friends and shot off into the valley for a quick bowl of BBQ pork and wonton noodle soup. Snap picture since I haven’t dressed up in ages. Waiting for the train now.
