New lunch Menu at Moga
Alicia Moo | On 18, May 2014
Rosalieâ€™s Moga Izakaya and Sushi has launched its new a la carte lunch menu featuring katsu sets, soba noodles and a new and exclusive panko imported from the finest panko makers in Japan.
Mmmm Japaneseâ€¦ itâ€™s my go to cuisine for delicious, aesthetically gorgeous food that comes with a 80% guilty free conscience.
Ok, so the star ingredient in Mogaâ€™s new lunch menu is deep fried, but this panko has been flown in from one of the oldest panko companies in Japan (by old I mean they have been doing this for over 100 years kind of old).
What makes it so unique is the incredible lightness. These Japanese bread crumbs are airier in texture which results in a crispier fry and is more resistant to absorbing oil â€“ so maybe it actually is 100% guilty free??
Expertly prepared by head chef, Satoshi Kubota, the lovely lunch bento box combinations are what youâ€™d expect to eat in a Panko House in Japan. They feature katsu curry in chicken, pork, prawn and vegetables served with steamed rice and miso soup.
You can add a refreshing potato salad or cabbage salad for a traditional lunch that will have you full to the brim and smiling from cheek to cheek. The chef is also ninja pro at preparing sashimi platters that look like a piece of art and taste like heaven.
Vegetarians and those who want gluten-free options wonâ€™t be disappointed with Mogaâ€™s new buckwheat soba noodle dishes that substitute meat for tempura prawns, tempura vegetables and house made vegetable fritter.
Did I mention thereâ€™s also an incredible combination of panko, asparagus and cheese – if you are asking if said combination works? The definitive answer is yep! It works like white on rice.
Continuing with the authentic Japanese tradition Moga has a wide selection of imported Japanese beers, sakes and wines as well as house made ice teas to complement your gyoza, noodles and endless nom nom noms. And there is also a sushi train section if you aren’t feeling like an all out Japanese a la carte affair.
Mogaâ€™s Japanese tapas style â€˜Izakayaâ€™ dining is perfect for grabbing a quick lunch during the week, and the casual garden setting is great for whiling away the day with friends.
