Mashi No Mashi
Right at home among Star Casino’s high-end eateries, Mashi No Mashi is devoted to showcasing Ozaki beef from Japan, a premium Wagyu reared on a single farm in Miyazaki Prefecture. It’s the sister brand of Wagyumafia, one of Tokyo’s most exclusive restaurants, and the group’s first venue in the southern hemisphere.
Ozaki beef appears throughout the menu and features in all five signature ramen dishes. Highlights include the tokusei tsukemen (house special dipping noodles), served with thinly sliced and lightly seared beef, bamboo shoots, cabbage, egg and a concentrated, umami-heavy Wagyu dipping broth.
And, taking the form of a more traditional ramen, the Wagyujiro features Ozaki beef-bone stock imported from Japan, udon-like noodles (made in-house) and thick slices of beef topped with fresh bean sprouts, bamboo shoots and minced garlic.
In line with the ingredients used, the pricepoint for a bowl of ramen sits higher than you’d typically find around Sydney: expect to pay from $38 to $48.
A small selection of izakaya-style plates is available, including pan-fried Wagyu gyoza and Wagyu char siu bao. To complete the meal, the restaurant serves its own canned whisky highballs and house-brewed beers.
The 50-seater is Mashi No Mashi’s biggest space yet, featuring a mix of stool seating at the ramen bar and booth seating in the main dining space – both offer views of the open kitchen. It's bursting with the brand’s signature bright yellow and black wall art, and tunes pump all day long to create a house party atmosphere.
