Hakata Gensuke Ramen Professionals

Hakata Gensuke Ramen Professionals

Two days in a row we went to Glenferrie Road for dinner but we went somewhere completely different this time. We have not had ramen from this place before but our friend suggested it so we thought why not as usual?
Its a smallish restaurant but the staff are polite and it does not do a huge selection of food but what it does it does well.




You pick what you want and mark the sheet of paper. I ordered the black tonkotsu which was a broth with black sesame paste. I have not had a black tonkotsu before and it was different. The flavor was not what I expected, it was a strong sesame flavor with garlic and spring onions.


 I ordered the special toppings option but they forgot to put it in the broth so they brought it to me in a separate bowl, the egg was runny in the middle and the pork was a good texture but a bit cold but once it heated up in the broth it was great.  We ordered the hakata gyoza which was pork I think but it was light and juicy.



The other dish was special fried chicken and it had a msg / chicken salt type mixture with it which was addictive but made you really thirsty. The chicken was tender and the batter was crispy but not over done.


The food is fresh and worth a visit, we will be back.

Getting back to life.

Getting back to life.

As I get towards the last week of work this cloud has lifted and I feel like a new person, my attitude and sense of humor has come back and I feel that I can now return back to blogging. Next week we will be going away for a few days before I start at the new company.
We have been on the hunt for waffles recently and I came across this place in Oakleigh called Pagoto. Its mainly a gelato place but i saw pics on Instagram and it looked amazing. It opens at 12pm and closes late so we went in for lunch. It was fairly quiet when we arrived and the two girls serving behind the counter seemed fairly relaxed until we ordered 9 waffles and a bunch of crazyshakes. They did a great job at serving our food with having to serve gelato at the same time.







You could choose any gelato flavor and they had a awesome range. The waffles are large but the batter was light and sweet inside yet slight crispy on the outside. They had random flavors of the crazy shakes.

We had so much sugar I almost had an overdose. We loved it so much we went a week later and got gelato and coffee. The coffee is smooth and has great flavor which is not what I expected.

We will go back as we had a great time.
