HARAJUKU GYOZA OPENS IN SOUTH BANK

GET your chopsticks ready to sample an array of mouth-watering gyozas at the new Harajuku Gyoza, which opened yesterday at South Bank.

Following the launch of eat South Bank in February, the precinct is continuing to grow rapidly, with the addition of a third Harajuku Gyoza for Brisbane.

eat South Bank is an online platform that was created to give customers control over their dining experience – from making a restaurant reservation to quickly researching new venues – all conveniently at the click of a few buttons.

The new Harajuka Gyoza at South Bank will dish out street food traditions from Tokyo, such as gyozas, dumplings, izakaya sides, ramen and Japanese sips from sake to beers.

Harajuku Gyoza’s General Manager, Andrew Jeffreys, said the menu was simple and relatively short, as the dishes were uncomplicated, but incorporate sophisticated basics.

“The dumplings are the focus, being made fresh daily and cooked centre-stage in the middle of the bar, where diners are invited to sit and watch,” Andrew said.

“The meals we serve are staples of the Japanese diet and the menu is simple, with pork, duck, chicken, prawn and vegetarian gyozas being the highlights, either grilled or poached.

“Harajuka Gyoza is a place to drop in – it’s a spontaneous thing.”

South Bank Corporation’s Retail Marketing Manager, Sam McNaught, said the opening of the Harajuka Gyoza restaurant had further enhanced the South Bank precinct as a unique food lover’s destination.

“South Bank’s dining scene will continue to take shape during the next few months, serving up a smorgasbord of international flavours to Brisbane foodies,” he said.

“Street food has a significant influence on our new venues, with Harajuku Gyoza serving up authentic Japanese bites and Zeus providing that true Greek food you find in the laneways of Athens.

“We feel that this will resonate well with Brisbane diners on any day of the week.”

Harajuku Gyoza opened yesterday, Thursday April 30, on Grey Street in South Bank.
