Ramen has come to Newcastle. SUSURU, which means ‘slurp’ in Japanese, has brought a new kind of international cuisine to our city. Presented to you by the two guys behind the well-known Honeysuckle restaurant, Nagisa, owner Taiyo Namba and Head Chef Chris Schofield, aren’t just serving up a variety of ramen dishes, but also a range of traditional gyoza dumplings with a modern twist. With traditional gyoza dumplings usually only having a singular flavour, SUSURU’s dumplings combine a variety of ingredients and flavours to create a range of scrumptious fillings. With something new popping up on the menu every month, all their ingredients are produced fresh, in-house to create seven different flavoured bowls of authentic Ramen that you’ll never forget. Designed by Ben Berwick, the stark white and yellow King Street building bears resemblance to something akin to a cross between a sterile hospital and something straight out of Pokemen. Ben has worked all over the world and was also involved in the design and documentation process for the Sydney Opera House renovations a few years ago. See some of their tasty dishes for yourself over on their Instagram, @susururamengyoza.
