Edosei

On a Thursday evening, I decided to catch up with a few of the girls from uni for dinner at Edosei. Edosei is a Japanese restaurant located along Barrack Street in the city. Edosei takes their freshness of the fish seriously as their fish is air flown directly from Melbourne. As we had a large group, we decided to share a few dishes for dinner. To start we had the Radish salad ($18). The radish salad was fresh and light in flavour. It also has a lovely punch of acidity. A great dish for hot, warm summer days. We also had … Continue reading Edosei

Kura Kura

After a day spent relaxing and sitting around at Starbucks in Darling Harbour, we decided to head for an early dinner at Kura Kura so that we could retreat for an early night to do more packing. Kura Kura is located next to Market City at Haymarket. The restaurant is broken to two sections – an upstairs and downstairs section. The upstairs section gives you a restaurant feel and the downstairs eatery has a smaller space with a limited menu. We chose to proceed to the upstairs section and managed to find ourselves a table as we were there very … Continue reading Kura Kura

Gumshara Ramen

After putting down our luggages at our hotel in Surry Hills, my friends and I decided to head towards Chinatown for brunch to fill our tummies before our next adventure in Sydney. We decided to head to Gumshara Ramen from hearing many great reviews. After five minutes walking around Chinatown searching for Gumshara Ramen high and low, we finally found it! Gumshara Ramen is located at a food court at the end of Chinatown called Eating World. Once you pass through those sliding doors, you are definitely at the right place. Apart from Gumshara Ramen, there’s also 10 to 15 … Continue reading Gumshara Ramen

Toraya

As I lost my voice, it was my stomach’s turn to make some noise. Having Japanese food for dinner was ideal as it was very clear that I had to avoid spicy food temporarily until my voice is back. Based on my research from the Entertainment book, we decided to go to Toraya at Subiaco Square for dinner after church. If you see Woolies, yes, you are definitely at the right place. This was my second visit to Toraya. We had no bookings and were lucky to find a table to ourselves inside on a cold, winter’s night. If you … Continue reading Toraya

Malaysian Food Adventures #18: Rakuzen at Oasis Damansara

    Since it is the Lenten season, the meat free Fridays continue until Lent is over. The parents and I decided to have Japanese for dinner and we managed to catch up with my bestie too! We decided to have dinner at Rakuzen at Oasis Damansara because the place is so pretty at night, with lights floating on the pond while its surroundings are restaurants. If you haven’t been to Oasis Damansara, I highly recommend you to check it out. Back in the days when I was still living in KL, my family and I used to dine in … Continue reading Malaysian Food Adventures #18: Rakuzen at Oasis Damansara
