South Bank has just welcomed a delectable Japanese kitchen that is destined to become your new favourite spot for mouth-watering comfort food.
We're talking about none other than the cult-favourite restaurant Motto Motto (and for good reason—the food is chef’s kiss!). This is likely because they skilfully blend the finest aspects of traditional Japanese fine dining, reimagining it for a casual, contemporary restaurant setting to provide a truly unique gourmet dining experience. It's worth noting that Motto Motto was created by the creative minds behind Sono, one of Australia’s most acclaimed Japanese restaurants – so you know you’re in for a real treat!
Diners can indulge in a delightful range of Japanese fare, from their iconic ramen bowls, donburi (rice-bowl dishes), udon, curry, gyoza, to bao buns, just to name a few menu highlights.
For a light snack option, the wonder bao with spicy chicken karaage steals the show. Imagine a premium slaw blend of fresh red and white cabbage, carrot, kale, saké pickles, shallots, and spicy chicken karaage nestled within a soft, pillowy bao – it’s seriously addictive.
If you're seeking dish recommendations, you can't go wrong with the wagyu beef yakiniku donburi featuring premium wagyu beef, onsen egg, shallots, seaweed, red pickles, sesame seeds, rice, and yakiniku. And our all-time favourite, the black tonkotsu ramen with pork super broth, shoyu kaeshi, slow reduction of garlic and shallot, fresh noodles, seaweed, marinated soft ramen egg, and fresh shallots – as certified ramen lovers, we assure you this dish always impresses!
Cap off your Motto Motto meal on a sweet note with their range of delicious soft serve – our pick is Matcha! Explore the menu to plan your order for your inaugural dining experience here.
