There are very few things we will openly admit Melbourne has on us, however, Mr. Miyagi (with his tasty Miyagi fried chicken, nori tacos and all) is definitely a win for our southern counterpart. There, we said it.
If you’re like us and you’ve got Mr. Miyagi at the top of your Instagram archives, well do we have some cracklin’ news for you. We’re talking another Mr M. and Messina collab.
Having hit Messina’s Rosebery HQ before (around this time last year… and yes, it was massive), Messina Eats Mr. Miyagi 2.0 is descending on Sydney at the end of November and there’s much to be excited about.
If you’ve ever heard of Messina Eats, you’ll know that the gelato juggernaut goes ahead and pairs up with other foodie meccas just for the hell of it so they can create some of the best bloody feeds ever. This year, in a collab with Mr. Miyagi, there are three insane dishes to dig into which will ALL be served in edible waffle baskets.
The first dish is a fried chicken blowout, stacked with ramen noodles, creamy spicy Japanese mayo, edamame and golden fried shallots topped with tempura crumble. The second feed is for any pork lover out there, with slow-cooked Murray Valley pork, ramen noodles, Japnese mayo, edamame, black bean chilli, toasted sesame and ramen spiced popcorn.
The final beauty you’ll want to make sure you save some room for, is an epic truffle basket, with sake braised mushrooms, ramen noodles, sesame dressing, edamame, chilli and tempura crumble. As for the sides, the wasabi fries are making a comeback only this time, the golden goodies have been upgraded with truffle mayo and ramen seasoning.
And in true Messina form, there’s always time for a gelato creation. This year, you’ll want to finish your feasting with the “One In A Melonpan” – a melonpan sweet dough, coated in a crisp cookie, stuffed with strawberry sorbet and vanilla gelato.
There’s much to take in so for more details, head here.
