I was so excited to hear that a Hawthorn branch of Hakata Gensuke has opened! And I was thrilled to be invited to try the new items on the menu exclusive to the Hawthorn branch.
Here are a few shots to demonstrate the ambience of Hakata Gensuke Hawthorn edition. It is a casual and contempory fitout, perfect for informal dining with family and friends and located so conveniently along the Glenferrie Road strip.
Verdict: We loved it.
Like the HG in the CBD, HG Hawthorn does not disappoint, offering authentic ramen experience for Melbournians. HG Hawthorn has addition menu items, namely the Aka Tonkotsu and Mentai rice which are both definitely worth sampling. Thank you Hakata Gensuke for the invite to the opening of the Hawthorn branch.
