Okuman Karaage & Ramen Bar
Warm the belly with steaming-hot ramen delivered in handmade bowls and a tot of sake at Japanese restaurant Okuman Karaage & Ramen Bar. The sleek South Brisbane establishment sits next to Bird’s Nest Yakitori & Bar on Melbourne Street, dishing up lunch and dinner Tuesday through to Sunday. Take a seat by the open kitchen to watch the chefs work their magic, settle in to the main dining area or get cosy in one of two private dining areas. Place your order via your table’s individual iPad and loosen your waistband for the Japanese feast that awaits. Lunch sees the popular bento boxes featuring the likes of teriyaki and karaage chicken, ginger fried pork and chicken schnitzel. For dinner, take advantage of the daily deliveries of fresh seafood with a mighty sushi or sashimi platter or tuck into a bowl of ramen with handmade gyoza, soft-shell crab tempura or wasabi octopus. Complement your meal with Japanese beer, cider, sake or shochu.
