Hokkaido, Sydney, Australia

On Loftus Street there is a Japanese restaurant. You have to enter by a dodgy door next to a convenience store, go down a flight of stairs enter the door that doesn’t quite close. The name of the previous tenant, a Chinese restaurant, is still visible if you look.

But the food at Hokkaido is pretty decent. My go to dish is the Chicken Katsu curry. Washed down with a Suntory Premiums Malts or 2.

The Torikatsu Curry is almost upto the standard that you’d expect in Japan. I was surprised.

Their gyoza and chicken karaage were reasonable but I just didn’t get that “wow” like I got with the Torikatsu Curry.

I did try the Ramen one time, but it didn’t capture my imagination like the ones I had in Kyoto and Nagano.

If you like Torikatsu Curry then this place is a definite.
