Feeling the chill? Then you’re definitely in need of some good Japanese curry to warm you up. But let’s not stop there. From unforgettable phos to ramen made with slow-cooked broth that will keep you coming back for more, here are four Asian venues that are worth visiting to warm the belly.
Eat Fuh, South Eveleigh, Marrickville, Darlinghurst, Chatswood, Potts Point & Mosman
Nothing says winter warmer quite like a big bowl of Pho. Eat Fuh is a family-run business specialising in Vietnam’s national dish – the mighty Fuh (Pho). The restaurant offers a variety of pho options, including beef, chicken, and vegetarian, all made with high-quality ingredients and traditional Vietnamese spices and herbs. The broth is simmered for hours to extract maximum flavour and is served steaming hot with fresh rice noodles and tender slices of meat.
Golden Century BBQ, Darling Square
Golden Century is a Sydney institution for authentic Chinese cuisine, and Golden Century BBQ in Sydney’s Darling Square is undoubtedly no exception. Known for its delicious barbecue dishes including roast duck and barbecue pork, the restaurant also serves classic Chinese dishes like fried rice, noodles, stir-fried vegetables, and a selection of soups and hotpots.
Dopa by Devon, Darling Square, Town Hall, Macquarie Centre, Darling Quarter, Sydney Place (Circular Quay)
If you’re in the mood for a delicious bowl of Japanese curry, look no further than Dopa by Devon. This Japanese-inspired restaurant offers a solid selection of generous rice bowls and Japanese curries that will warm your soul this winter. Think Pork Katsu curry, Karaage chicken and savoury don bowls featuring some of the region’s premium food producers.
Yasaka Ramen, Sydney Place (Circular Quay), Waterloo and Rhodes
Born in 2014, Yasaka Ramen at Circular Quay is one of the city’s founding fathers of local ramen dens, and their signature Tonkotsu broth has helped build a growing cult following ever since. Made with pork bones and water, this hugely popular broth is slowly simmered for hours through a two-step cooking process, developing a complex flavour profile before being served. Three different types of noodles are made fresh daily on-site, and new dishes are introduced regularly to warrant an endless joyful ramen appreciation.
