Is a YES From Me! Named after the Japanese word for “sesame”, Izakaya Goma is nestled among a number of other restaurants and retailers in the small beachside suburb of Maroubra. Dating back to Egyptian times some 3,600 years ago, sesame has always been prized for its medicinal benefits. And just like its namesake, the reputation of this modest casual Japanese eatery packs a sumo-sized punch, challenging any Spanish tapas lovers to a change of scene and culinary delights. As you’d expect, it’s all about fresh flavours here and in true Izakaya tradition, Izakaya Goma doesn’t disappoint. Large menus feature portraits of each dish making it easier to navigate the huge offerings. From the humble noodle, truffle oil green soybeans and stuffed fried chicken wings drizzled in Goma’s secret sauce, to the more intricately presented sashimi and sushi platters, each dish is generously prepared in a labour of love by Goma’s veteran chef. So next time you’re in the area, grab a friend and head down to pick your way through the Izakaya Goma menu. Must try: Wagyu Beinasu Kuromiso Dengaku (grilled eggplant topped with wagyu beef)
