Unlike lobsters that come from the sea, marrons are freshwater shellfish native to the Southwest region of Australia. This gives their sweet flesh a distinctive mildly muddy taste as compared to the brighter, clean sweetness of lobsters. Which makes it all the more impressive when you taste the results of a chef who clearly knows what he is doing.
Burnt Ends keeps the marrons alive till the time comes for them to become dinner. So mere minutes prior to what you see in my pic above, this was a feisty blue creature waving its claws in the air (sorry if I am freaking out the sensitive souls amongst you). Anyway, the bare-bones preparation style of grilling truly brought forth the character of the marron. Its firm succulence also paired well with the house-made kombu (a type of seaweed) butter.

The carbonara was quite impressive! I shared this with a friend, together with the Morning After pizza and truffle fries (which proved to be too much haha) but I highly recommend this pasta. It was creamy but not overboard and the penne was perfect for sharing. There's a tasting option for $14 and a full option for $18. We went for the full but it was just right for 2, if you aren't a heavy eater, the tasting portion may be the better choice :)

I'm a huge fan of sashimi and chirashi don. This particular one was pretty great, I enjoyed how the fish was fresh and the slices were thick, making it an experience in itself. The unity between the fish and the rice could have been better and I prefer the Sushi Bar's chirashi for that, but this is definitely worth a try!

Old school Japanese restaurant vibes, friendly sincere restaurant which kept urging me "Go try out other restaurant yah?" Realised that the slices are slightly thinner than its sister restaurant. Vibes are similar though.
Something is lacking in this bowl, though I can't quite pinpoint what.

Finally had the chance to have a meal at this burp-pular place! Steaks come in 200g/ 400g/ 600g option. Went medium rare and the meat blended well with the semi-honey mustardish tartar sauce (?). Enjoyed it and it'll be even better if they can slice the meat thinner.

For a ramen-lover, I was surprised to find that this unassuming ramen restaurant served affordable and delicious ramen! I especially love the noodles. Really worth a try and prices range from around $16 - $25! This particular ramen costs $17 :)

This appetizer is fit for two and is a nice start if you plan on ordering a steak as your main dish. However, we found it a tad too salty and pricey (compared to the side plates at $10, which were more worth the money for sure)
