Ryo's Noodles

Japanese is one of my favourite cuisines.  I finally had time to try out Ryo's noodles in Chinatown.  I really disliked the red curtains at the door.  It was too long and got in the way as I was entering and also leaving. 

When I walked inside, it was spot on lunch time and yet it wasn't busy.  I was told by a waitress to sit at one particular table and wasn't allowed to choose where I could sit.

Paper menus were used, and there were a few choices of ramen to choose from.  I had the miso ramen which consisted of roast pork, half an egg, bamboo shoots, roast pork, sesame seeds and topped with a big bunch of shallots.  The pork was a little dry for my liking, and the soup was just salty.  What happened to the flavours?   

I left Ryo's Noodles feeling a little disappointed.  I definitely won't be back in a hurry, this place is perhaps good for someone who hasn't been to Japan and tasted real ramen.  It was no Japanese ramen for me.

I am not into footy, and therefore haven't had the privilege to visit the Adelaide Oval.  I have only seen pictures on TV and it always looked amazing.  As soon as I found out a fine dining restaurant was opening, I was very excited.  I went to the Hill of Grace Restaurant for one of my birthday dinners.

Fire On Unley

The decor caught my eyes as I was driving down Unley Road.  I could even see the dome from outside, yes it is a wood oven.  As soon as I stepped into the restaurant, I could see the shiny wood oven, the chandeliers hanging from the ceiling.  We were offered a seat at the booth.  I wouldn't call it busy on a Sunday night, there were at least three or four staff on the floor.
