Sushi e

Thank you to the wonderful @eatventures_ for surprising me with this dinner for my birthday! My birthday dinner celebrations have developed a bit of a tradition in the form of Japanese cuisine. So naturally, sooner or later, we’d end up at sushi e for it. The friendly staff at sushi e seated us promptly and…

Yayoi

Yayoi has been a restaurant that has been in and out of my radar all year. I walk past it all the time in Galleries since it’s opened and I’ve looked at the menu so many times.  Finally, I got around to trying it on a chilly evening in the city after much contemplation. The little restaurant’s location…

Hukuya

While sushi trains and food court kiosks are abundant in shopping centres, sushi bars however are a small niche that seemed exclusive to high-end Japanese restaurants. Finding Hukuya, a hidden gem in Eastwood was my first step in my endeavours for sushi bar dining style.  The first thing you need to know about Hukuya is that…

Tounoya

There has been a recent surge of restaurants sprouting all over Eastwood. One of these is Tounoya – Japanese Restaurant and Karaoke Bar.  The restaurant is clean, well presented and well lit with plenty of tables and booths and they already seemed quite popular.  I had read recent reviews of the restaurant, most of which…

Tokyo Ramen

Newly opened in Macquarie centre and a pretty cheap bang for your buck, Tokyo Ramen is the place to fill your stomach. Unfortunately I wouldn’t consider it a great ramen place but it’ll do if you’re after something filling and cheap.  The actual shop is quite small and is probably better handled as a take away…
