If we lived our lives in a Murakami novel we'd always be eating spaghetti, drinking Cutty Sark and having conversations with cats*. But Marukame Udon and Tempura in Chatswood brings us back to Japan in another way through its fresh house made udon noodles and onsen tamago (soft boiled eggs to you and me).
Mention eating anything fusion and we would normally run a mile away. But the banh mi rolls at Vui Va Say retain a good amount of their banh mi essence despite the fusion label. Get a little pork rock n roll.
