Taro’s Ramen-South Brisbane

I went to Westend earlier, and I had the opportunity to try another restaurant here, so I went to Taro’s Ramen for lunch.

Taro Ramen should be the earliest generation of ramen shops in Brisbane. In my memory, as early as in my college days around 2003, they had already opened in the city, and my classmates said that the ramen there is very delicious. Later, I also had the opportunity to eat ramen there, which was a good impression, but it was many years ago.
This time I visited their west end branch, which is located between Southbank and Westend, so you can get off at the bus stop at the Culture center, which is very convenient.

The decoration is neat, and each table has iPads to order food, which is very convenient.
tonkotsu ramen($18.50)
First of all, I ordered the tonkotsu ramen, calls the treasure of their shop, their soup base is very flavorful and creamy, which is what I like, and the noodles are very chewy. My wife ordered the Shoyu Ramen and it was also good. The soup base was fragrant, and the noodles very chewy too. I like them all. That is a bit sad, no free extra ramen, $3 per bowl.
Japanese Gyoza
Of course, there are also some Japanese Gyoza that children like, they are all attractive and delicious.

To sum up, if there is a chance, you can find there for lunch, and you will definitely go there. Unfortunately, there is no branch in the south, and I don’t know when there will be another chance.

Since the epidemic began, it has been a long time since I left the city.

However, when I had the opportunity to visit the city earlier. I found a lot of changes here, such as a new coles local. Before, I have heard of this new Coles brand, mainly high-end and some local brands. This time, I have really had the opportunity to visit the one at Adelaide Street in person.

The storefront is bright and spacious, the furnishings of the goods are more stylish, and all the refrigerators have doors, giving people a clean feeling. However, the price of the goods seems to be similar to that of the other branches, but I can’t see the half-price specials. But there are some non-alcoholic gins that don’t seem to be found in other coles.

In my previous blog posts, I said that the Newnham Hotel is a great place to meet friends. Recently, I also attended another friend’s dinner party at Club Southside.
It was a Saturday night, so the parking lot was almost full during peak hours, and the inside was almost full, so you really needed to book a table to suit you.

Once inside, the restaurant decorations are grand, and the seating is wide. It’s much better than Newnham Hotel, so it feels good. And they all sit comfortably and have a sense of space. After sitting down, look at the menu. It is not expensive, a main course of more than $20, and the children’s meal is only $10. In Brisbane, it is very reasonable.

Chicken Schnitzel
I ordered Chicken Schnitzel, and it was the same as last time I ordered at Newnham Hotel, so to compare, and again it’s hard to go wrong. Back to the topic, the food is all okay, and it’s all a few crispy. And maybe the environment is better, so I think the taste is better than that of the Newnham Hotel.
Fish & Chips

Another selling point is the children’s meal, although it is not buy one get one free, but if you are a member, it is only$10. Furthermore, the portion is quite large, which is almost the same as an adult meal. And if it is a friend under the age of twelve, a cup of ice cream will be given. As for the taste, the children ordered Fish & Chips, and the children will definitely say that this food is delicious.
If you are a member, you can save $5 per meal, and the membership fee is $5 a year, so as long as you order one meal or more, you can “earn” the membership fee back.

To sum up, this dinner is really good, the environment is quite comfortable, and you can sit there for two or three hours, and the food is also okay.

I went to Pinelands plaza for lunch the other day. D’s Sizzling HouseD's Sizzling House is closed for good.I used to have dinner there from time to time when they were in Little Taipei more than 20 years ago. I still remember that there are sizzling steaks, toasts, and drinks for about $10, which are affordable. However, not anymore. In the past two years, Sunny Seoul and Haoke are closed. Garden city has changed its name and is no longer Garden city anymore. During this time, friends will gradually become strangers.I feel like getting old. That sounds like my era is near to be ended.

Newnham Hotel
Earlier, a friend took us to Newnham Hotel for dinner. When we were young in Hong Kong, we must all think of a five-star hotel when we heard about “Hotel”.

But in Australia, the Hotel is just a bar. Generally, there are some poker machines and a very ordinary restaurant.
This Newnham road is like this. As soon as you enter, you can see that the decoration is very ordinary and looks relatively old. But we were looking for a place to chat with friends and sit for two or three hours. And there are not many people here. So there is no need to wait and make reservations. And there are ample parking spaces. Also, the location is excellent. It is also one or two streets away from Garden City and only one or two minutes drive away from the entrance and exit of the expressway. So even if you have friends living in the North District, it is very convenient.

Also, their other selling point is that you can get a free kid’s meal ($6) with just one main course. So if you are a family of four with two children, it’s almost half price.
chicken parmigiana
On that day, I ordered chicken parmigiana. because that is the most classic, so it is very safe. In the end, there is no surprise in the taste, but it must not be wrong, I am satisfied. At the same time, it also a free Fish & Chips for children. This is about 20 dollars, so I am very happy.
In the end, there were more than ten people in our group, and five or six children were sitting there for two or three hours. No one disturbed us; we sat well and had enough to eat. All our requirements are met. Of course we are very happy

Coffee Bun
If you have been to Warrigal Square, you will feel the very fragrant coffee smell, in fact, coffee bun. Because these are attracted by these fragrances, I want to buy them almost every time I pass by.
A coffee bun costs $3.80, which is not too expensive, and it has a strong coffee flavor and is hot. If you add an extra coffee for $7 (If I remember correctly) I think it’s worth a try.

Rice Paper Vietnamese Cuisine in Warrigal Square has been in business for more than ten years. I used to go there for lunch from time to time before I had children, but because their seats are a little bit narrow, that is good for the baby pram. The kid is getting a little older, the epidemic seems to be getting better again, and everyone has accepted the epidemic. Recently, I went out to eat more, so I recently had the opportunity to go to Rice Paper Vietnamese Cuisine for lunch.

It was around 1:00 p.m. on weekdays, and it was busy.Most of the tables were almost full, but fortunately, there was no need to wait for a table. Of course, if you go there, you must eat Vietnamese noodles, Pho.
Beef Tripe Pho
The wife ordered Beef Tripe Pho. The wife said that the taste is good, and the Beef Tripe is very fresh. The soup is more flavorful, and the rice noodle is very smooth.
chicken shredded soup noodle
And I just ordered the chicken shredded soup noodle, which is very high quality. The soup base is flavorful and fragrant, the Pho is smooth, and the taste is similar to the previous one, still at a level.
Vietnamese iced coffee
In addition, Vietnamese iced coffee is still very famous, so you must try it. This is the drip coffee, I ordered frozen black coffee, and this kind of coffee can be drunk with strength. The taste feels very special and very strong, which is most suitable for people like me who often need coffee reminders.

Although Rice Paper Vietnamese Cuisine is still in charge of “Uncle Han”, it is still worthy of being one of Brisbane’s restaurants with history.it won’t let you disappointed.

queensland museum
It’s the school holiday now. For Brisbane, it’s essential to take time off to go out with the children, otherwise, the children will be very bored. I took a day off today. I took the children to Southbank by bus, and there are many high-rise buildings in Southbank and Westend, which is entirely different from the style of Sunnybank, which is still a suburb, so it feels like going to oversea. Moreover, there are museums, art galleries, state libraries, and playgrounds. These facilities can definitely “discharge” the children’s energy.queensland museum

La Casa Patisserie There are more and more Chinese in the south of Brisbane, and the small shopping malls got some Chinese shops. It’s like going to Runcorn Plaza earlier. Although some restaurants have closed, such as Little Lamb Hot Pot & BBQ, REN Sushi, there are also new restaurants opened, such as the ones I visited before, La Casa Patisserie. This is a Chinese bakery. Personally speaking, they are quite “Hong Kong” style. I bought a green tea bread. This is good, and the texture is soft and has a lot of green flavors. Also, there are coffee buns for sale. I like this kind of bun, but unfortunately, it has been sold out, so I can’t try it. I will definitely go there to buy loaves of bread next time because children like their loaves of bread.

I went to the Compton Road’s mall for lunch last week by accident because I was planning to go to another full Japanese restaurant, and there was no parking space. Fortunately, I found several popular places in the mall, and the most popular is En Sushi. It was only around 12 o’clock when we arrived, but it took 15 minutes to wait for a table. On Google, their reviews are pretty positive, and some people say that this store, originally in Kuraby, and the old site has some reputation.

Chicken Katsu Rice Bento ($19.90)

Chicken Katsu Rice Bento ($19.90)

As soon as I entered the store, I saw that most people ordered a bento box, so I also ordered a fried chicken chop (chicken katsu) bento box, which cost about $20. In this era of high inflation, for $20, there is a bento meal with rice, chicken chop, two fried prawns, miso soup, and three small plates of side dishes, which is really good value. So I believe everyone is because of this bento box. As for the taste, they are all good, the chicken chop is quite juicy, and the fried chicken is fragrant.

Sunset Roll ($20.90)

In addition, I also ordered a Sunset roll, and the salmon was almost smooth. And there is a lot of salmon in them, so they are all enough!

Unagi Don $24.90

In addition, I also ordered a Sunset roll, and the salmon was almost smooth. And there is a lot of salmon in them, so they are all enough!
Of course, we went with the kid. Thus, I need to order fully cooked food for her. This time, I ordered Unagi rice. Of course, that is hard to go wrong with this style of rice. In general, so the taste is not bad.

This Japanese restaurant is good, and I will consider going next time.
