WHAT WE ATE...
I decided to have the ‘Soba Noodles – Tempura king prawn, enoki, pumpkin, tea egg, nori, daikon, soy dipping sauce ($16.50)’. I must say that I adored this dish... The golden tempura batter that coated the prawn, enoki and pumpkin was so light and delicate. Every element of the dish was delightful and together they created a big smack of flavour. I fear that my future lunches elsewhere will pale in comparison...
My dining companion chose the ‘Corn and Zucchini Croquettes – House cured salmon, herb aioli, asparagus, frisee, poached egg ($16.50)’. This was also a fantastic dish and was consumed at great speed...

WHAT WE DRANK...
Next time I’m going to try a Vietnamese coffee ($4.20) or an Umeshu ($10.00) which is a Japanese plum wine... When the weather warms up though, I think I might opt for a Hawthorn Pale Ale ($9.00). On this occasion I ordered a latte ($3.60) which was delightful with chocolate notes.
Even though Baba Sus is very popular, we were well looked after. We found that the service was very friendly and professional.
