Steve and I were invited to try out Shizuku Ramen which marries Japanese cuising and craft beer.
Small and welcoming decor is minimal but attractive with lanterns and dark wood. The menu is so vast and it's hard to choose what to eat but of course we manage! We start off with one of the gyoza options and go classic and traditional.
GYOZA CLASSIC - 6pcs pan fried pork mince & cabbage dumplings, spring onions, homemade tangy sesame vinaigrette
This was followed by sashimi.
TUNA TARTARE - sashimi grade ground tuna in SHIZUKU dressing, served with deep fried gyoza skin
SALMON CARPACCIO - salmon sashimi, fresh orange soy
SCALLOP SASHIMI - hokkaido scallop, yuzu ponzu, wasabi mayo
Whilst the sashimi is creative and generous in portion I prefer the more classic flavours.
SHOYU RAMEN - marinated cha shu pork belly, bamboo shoots, spring onions, home brewed soy sauce
TAN TAN MEN - free range pork mince, chilli oil, preserved vegetables, rich sesame sauce
The bowls of noodles were perfect for this rainy, grey Winter's day. Good deep flavoured broth and springy strings of noodles.
If pho doesn't appeal and you're on ictoria Street remember this option. Thanks for dinner Shinzuku Ramen. Really appreciate it.
