Takeru - Sussex St, Sydney

Another good type of comfort food - Western style Japanese food, think creamy pastas & the like.  Takeru is another one that's been sitting on my list 'to try' for a while, and I finally got around to it a few Fridays ago.

There was a short wait, and my first impression of the restaurant was that it was quite small and cramped.   Upon arrival, you write your name down, and take a number, being asked if you'd like to share.

So many choices! Looking through the picture menu

What I love about Takeru - this cartoon sums it up quite well, they have 1/2 dishes, which I'm a massive fan of, as it means you can choose 2 different things! woohoo, eases the decision process

Entree - takoyaki

Green tea shake - very thick and creamy, with a scoop of green tea ice cream, I still prefer Ichi-ban Boshi's version though

Half serve of salmon cream spaghetti - I loved this! And the 1/2 serving was perfect!

Chicken karaage ramen

Chicken namban - deep fried chicken with delicious sauce, it was recommended on their menu, and was quite good!

I've been here so many times and I can never go past their mochi curry!

Audrey Allure - I love green tea shakes! The green tea makes them less filling than other flavours

Lorraine - I want to go back too, and try the other dishes, like the seafood doria etc =D

Maria - mochi curry sounds interesting!

Ooh, that chicken karaage ramen looks like the perfect thing for these cold nights!
