Brisbane Day Trip: Hakataya Ramen, Hanaichi and Sakuraya


Hakataya Ramen Mount Gravatt Garden City Shop Grand Opening
We went down to Brissie last Sunday, mainly to eat and shop and to escape ourselves from this boring little inland of Queensland. Plus, I really needed it, so badly! Working life is just plain exhausting!

William suggested Hakataya Noodle Nagahama / 長浜ラーメン / 博多屋, the newly opened, located at Mount Gravatt Garden City Shop, Sunnybank. In celebration of its grand opening, the restaurant was giving away free extra noodle (3 consecutive days from 7th to 9th December) for each noodle soup purchased. We made it on the last day!

Gyoza / Fried Dumplings - $7. Taste wise was just ordinary without any dipping sauces.

Mr. Choo got himself a Miso Spicy-Men while William had a Karaka-Men.

I ordered a Karaka-Men too. The level of spiciness is still within my acceptable range, fortunately. I'd say say its chilli paste and soup base are the key ingredients that make the noodle fragrant and so delicious.

Sakuraya Bubble Tea Shop Sunnybank
After dinner and some grocery shopping, we decided to drop by Sakuraya for some Japanese milk tea.
