Was delighted when we paid Beard Papa’s a visit and discovered their new Green Tea custard puffs were out! A minty-green colour, they look a bit odd but taste oh-so-goooood :)~ It has a more interesting flavour than the vanilla custard, but is still really subtle and light, so it’s not overpowering. Really fresh, light and just sweet enough.


Beard Papa’s green tea puff (AU$2.50). It was blimmin’ fabulous!

Had dinner afterwards at Ramen-Kan, a favourite every time we’re at Chatswood. For around AU$10, you’ll leave with a full belly, which is not too bad for Sydney. Their specialty really is their Ramen noodles.. so we got our favourite one, Cold Ramen and egg mayonnaise & chilli jam. It’s the BEST ramen dish they have by far, IMHO. The noodles are al dente and in a slightly sour sauce, served with big fat chunks of fried chicken and topped with a creamy egg mayonnaise and tasty chilli jam. It’s to die for!! Also decided to try out the Chicken Katsu Curry with rice and salad which surprised me when it came – it was just swimming in the curry sauce! They didn’t give much chicken though, much to my disappointment. It was good, but not spectacular, so will probably try another dish instead next time.
