Charim, Crows Nest

Home-style Korean food has found its way to Crows Nest in the form of Charim, a new-ish cosy restaurant that only has room for a few wooden tables and an open plan kitchen which also doubles as the counter. I am glad we booked ahead, because on the Friday night we arrive the tables in the restaurant are already almost full and the owners had to play some tetris with the remaining table to fit the 4 of us in.

Ms. Miller, Cammeray

I haven’t been to Cammeray in many years, although it is just down the road from the bustling foodie hub of Crows Nest. The main strip of Cammeray is on Miller Street, where the aptly named Ms Miller is located.

Brunch and afternoon tea on the North Shore: Salvage Specialty Coffee, Artarmon and Kurtosh, Crows Nest

Salvage Specialty Coffee

A friend of ours who loves his coffee recently mentioned a fantastic cafe in Artarmon called Salvage Specialty Coffee which he’s been meaning to try. He enticed us to join him by letting us know that Salvage does a decent brunch too, so we duly headed over on a Saturday morning.

That’s not a typo in the name of this post – this cosy restaurant is actually called @! (a.k.a At! Restaurant), and its unconventional modern name reflects the interesting twist on traditional Japanese dishes that it serves up. The restaurant itself is on the busy Pacific Highway part of Crows Nest and has a simple and clean decor, with light coloured wood featuring throughout the interior. It’s not a very big space – there’s a sashimi bar area which has bench style seating if you prefer to watch the chef at work, but tonight we are seated at one of the few tables in the restaurant.

Ryo’s Noodles, Crows Nest

I’ve never been much of a ramen fan and have always preferred ordering rice or udon over ramen whenever I visited a Japanese restaurant. What annoys me is that I find the noodles quite boring and the flavours exhaustive, as after a couple minutes I am ready to change dishes. So when Yvn told me that Ryo’s had one of the best ramens in Sydney, I was quite sceptical as I thought it’d be just as boring as all the other ramen I’ve had. I think I may have stumbled across a ramen I might actually enjoy again now.
