Miso Japanese Restaurant
Yummy yum yum. I always research for food places to go and visit when I travel. Okay.. In fact, I do my research almost at all times whenever I eat outside. Came across Miso Japanese Restaurant which is well known for its fabulous Tonkatsu. Jan and I couldn’t miss it for the world.
The secret with Miso Japanese Restaurant’s tonkatsu is the use of an all natural Western plain pork imported from Victoria. The pigs are bred free range which make their meat more tender. It was also said that these pigs are fed on wheat and barley so that it meats will give off a more succulent flavour. At Miso Japanese Restaurant, only female pigs were chosen to be sacrificed and laid on our plates for god knows what reason that makes them have better meats.
Tonkatsu Pork Loin Set, 16.80AUD
I ordered their best seller option called the Tonkatsu Pork Loin Set which weighs 180 grams. I enjoyed it very much. Best Tonkatsu I’ve eaten in months! I was also presented with a macaroni salad, long beans with peanut sauce, and a side salad with a tomato. Didn’t quite like the side salad because the sauce has a mild wasabi taste and you know how much I hate wasabi? There’s no questioning. All in all the Tonkatsu was crispy on the outside as they used soybean breadcrumbs while the tender and juicy meat… is indescribably good. And goodness gracious, there’s a mild pork smell when bitten, a hint of euphoria in every bite.
Miso Bento, 19.80AUD
Jan’s Miso Bento include Kushikatsu Pork skewer, Salmon Sashimi, Soft Shell Crab, and side dishes like broccoli, tofu, potato salad, meatball, spring roll, a slice of orange with rice, and miso soup. Sure there’s more options (salmon sashimi and soft shell crab) to pleasure your wander, but my classic Tonkatsu Pork Loin meat outbeats the rest and now I can’t stop smirking.
Yuzu Green Tea, 3.50AUD
You know when two flavours don’t blend? The Yuzu Green Tea is the cup of the undecided taste. I wouldn’t recommend this one.
I didn’t like the simplicity of the decor. I wish it could’ve been more modern or they could’ve brought a touch of the Japanese culture. I would give them food at least a nine out of ten. Decor wise… Miso Japanese Restaurant could do with some improvements.
