Ginga Restaurant (Brisbane, Australia)
There are a lot of places to dine in the South Bank area of Brisbane, so many it will take you months just to try them all. I had my fair share of dining on this street, perhaps around 10 now and counting and the most recent one is this Ginga Restaurant which I discovered when I was walking to our Head Office from Rydges Hotel where I am checked in at that time.
The place boasts two sections, one is the sushi train area and another one is the dining hall where you can order your usual ramen and gyoza plus items from the sushi train. I came here for a lunch so was not bothered doing the sushi train, all I want is to be stuffed as I was quite hungry at that time.
Like normal Japanese restaurants they serve the usual stuff like Ramen, Udon, Donburi, Okonomiyaki, Sushi, Sashimi and Tempura. They also sell milk tea which is quite odd for a Japanese place but I gladly welcome this idea as I love milk teas.
So, I started with some Gyoza (AU$4.80) for my appetizer
then had some Chicken Karaage Ramen (AU$13.90) for my mains
noodles were indeed filling, served on a big bowl, it comes with lots of Chicken Karaage on top, broth tasted like tonkotsu and it is also served with a generous amount of seaweed. I quite like the taste and the amount of serving, but what I noticed is that the ramen used was not the fresh ones and the eggs was just the normal boiled eggs instead of the ramen eggs.
And like I said I quite like the idea of milk tea, hence I ordered one. Taro Milk Tea (AU$4.50) was the choice of drink as this is one of my favourite milk tea flavours.
Overall the place did satisfied me and filled its job of filling me up, flavour was spot on, the only items that stood out for me was the one I mentioned above. Though these are small for the ones who loves Japanese food will notice them.
