A taste experience of Japanese delights in Brisbane suburbs
Our daughter and son in law enjoyed their Christmas holidays in Japan and have been on the look out for some authentic Japanese cuisine here in Brisbane. They recently invited us to try Hosokawa, a Japanese Restaurant in Hamilton.
I haven't been to Japan but it is on my "bucket list" so a dinner at a Japanese restaurant was the next best thing.
Hosokawa advertises its restaurant a "traditional Japanese cuisine served in a modern space with minimalist decor" and I believe that is what we got. The restaurant is located down busy Racecourse Road in Hamilton and presents itself as a simple and small restaurant which has outdoor tables to accommodate the customers.
For our main dish, we all shared Sukiyaki ($38.50) which is a steaming hot pot with thinly sliced beef and vegetables in a sweet sukiyaki sauce/broth which is served with rice, miso soup and raw egg yolk for dipping. This was cooked right on the table on a small single burner and we could add the beef as we liked it. A very interactive and tasty dining experience.
Hosokawa is open from Tuesday to Saturday for both lunch and dinner. Street parking is available. Reservation highly recommended for dining on the weekend especially for dinner.
Japanese food is colourful, freshly made and enjoyed was shared. We had a lovely evening and thought the food was well presented and very tasty. I could see my husband and myself coming back for another meal in the future and having the confidence to order for ourselves.
