New Japanese rice burger restaurant launches in Sydney
Japanese chef, Chase Kojima of Sokyo has recently opened Gojima, opposite Momofuku Seiōbo in The Star and serves a delicious and unique range of Japanese rice burgers, sides and desserts available for dine-in or takeaway.
The menu features a MASSIVE range of rice burgers made with Gojima’s signature Japanese sushi rice and nori bun. Some of the options include the Gojima Cheeseburger (a combination of Angus Beef, American cheese, tomato, Japanese pickles, onion, lettuce and Gojima special sauce), the Chicken burger, Mushroom Burger, Salmon Miso, Spicy Tuna and Kingfish Sweet Mustard.
On top of all that, there’s even Japanese-style southern fried chicken on offer served with Gojima special sauce. It was so good, we ordered double to take home!
Drinks wise, the menu features frozen custards and thickshakes, including chocolate miso, green tea and strawberries and cream, plus Asahi on tap, saké, local and international bottled beer, Australian wine, and soft drinks.
Gojima takes its name from a play on Kojima’s surname and the Japanese word for rice, ‘gohan’ – the staple ingredient that forms the base of the deluxe rice buns.
Kojima said: “We’re excited to launch Gojima and take the exciting rice burger concept to the next level by marrying the delicate flavours of modern Japan with the rich American flavours from my childhood growing up in San Francisco, California. We’ve spent the last year developing our rice burgers, with a focus on the quality and integrity of ingredients to create the perfect taste and texture combination.”
The opening of Gojima follows the enormous success of Kojima’s casual Sokyo Ramen pop-up.
