Master Chef Recommended Ramen!!

February 28, 2015

Some of you have asked which ramen Master Chef, Adam Liaw had and instagrammed at the BrisAsia – Taste of Asia Food Festival on Feb 27th.

It was the Red Tonkotsu Extra Thin Noodle with Extra Smoke Ajitama.

To be honest, as much as Adam loved our ramen, we prepped a tad too much for the event so we are currently putting the same menu on special at the City Shop to commemorate the honor!

Deluxe Tonkotsu Ramen Super deal for 13.90 or 14.90 for Red/Fire.  Comes with unlimited extra noodles, extra soup, extra charsiu, extra Smoke Ajitama.  Come in before it runs out.

Thanks once again Adam for the kind recommendation!

Sophia’s Gourmet @ Clayfield

February 27, 2015

An absolute gem in Clayfield. Giuseppe churns out all the dishes himself and customers all understand the beauty of this business. Hence patient loyal customers flock to be guests at Giuseppe’s kitchen.

We had the fish of the day, swordfish with a magnificent cherry tomato and olive sauce, a tantisimo tasting plate (the sweet eggplant dish and the rolled pork belly!) and the pasta of the day which was a penne. Giuseppe made us some kids bolognese as well and sampled some dessert (Italian choc chip ice cream, almond meal cake and a cylinder shaped pastry.

When I meet passionate foodies like Giuseppe, it gives me energy to continue what i do!

Pork Cartilage Karaage 豚軟骨塩からあげ

February 20, 2015


It’s pretty crunchy. Even for a seasoned nankotsu lover used to chicken cartilage, the pork cartilage is crunchier and chewier so not recommended unless you really like cartilages.

7 serves in Ascot, 5 serves in City.


Where Chefs Eat

February 15, 2015

Wow, what an awesome surprise to find that of all chefs, Ryan Squires, owner chef of Esquire, the only 3 hatted restaurant in brisbane, had recommended us in this guide book. Quite an honor sir, thank you so much, it means a lot to me!



By the way, we are open on Sundays as well (7 days excluding public holidays)

March Special / Thinking of Home – Japan Earthquake Appeal / Sendai Miso Ramen

February 14, 2015

Taste testing next month’s special. Sendai Miso Ramen.

A clean and gentle white koji miso broth (chicken and fish stock) with a side of the signature spicy red miso to change the mood half way down your journey. Matched with thick curly noodles and the traditional toppings consisting of charsiu, memma, cabbage, garlic chives, and a sprinkling of aonori (sea laver).

Homage to the shop that I worked at although for a very short while which was at the center of the damage and all of the earthquake victims in the Japan Earthquake and Tsunami in 2011. 10% of sales will be donated to Hatachi Kikin a NGO fund supporting orphans and kids that were affected by the disaster.
