Komachi Japanese Restaurant, Surry Hills

Japanese food isn’t really the first thing thing that comes to mind when thinking Surry Hills, it’s exactly what we’re here for on a chilly weeknight.

If you’ve ever been on Cleveland Street, you’ll probably have noticed Komachi Japanese Restaurant- the one with its front windows transformed into a wall of fame, featuring customers who have successfully completed their 1 kilo ramen challenge. There’s 34 on the wall so far, but we’re not quite brave enough to face the challenge- we’re here to try their normal menu thanks to Washoku Lovers.

Ricotta Pancakes

Quick post today!

I’m a huge fan of pancakes, but besides the one time I made chocolate pancakes, I’ve always stuck to the same trusty pancake recipe whenever I whip up a batch for brekky. Ever since my trip to Japan, where pancakes come in all shapes, sizes and flavours, I’ve been a little obsessed over pancakes and thought I’d start experiemting with some other recipes.

Seeing as I had half a tub of ricotta left in the fridge, I thought I’d try these famous ricotta hotcakes that people have been raving about for years. Perhaps I had my hopes too high, but to be very honest, I wasn’t too impressed. Nevertheless, they’re light and fluffy and quite pleasant to have- although I probably will be experimenting with other pancake recipes next time!
