Best Cheap Eats Sydney, Eat, Restaurants / 31 May 2022

Global sensation Wagyumafia unveils the third international location of its signature ramen brand, and it’s right here in Sydney. 

The Star will provide the backdrop for the mouthwatering offering featuring the world-renowned premium-grade ramen and gyoza. Mashi No Mashi (literally translates to ‘eat more and more’) is famous for its wagyu-heavy menu in which each dish is exclusively centred around the renowned and delicious Japanese Ozaki beef, a hyper premium beef that packs a punch and embodies MNM’s mantra – ‘More is better’. More quality, more taste, more noodz please. 

Wagyumafia is a brand founded on an unadulterated appreciation for world-class wagyu. Self-taught chef-turned-wagyu experts Hisato Hamada and entrepreneur Takafumi Horie’s beef export business gained global acclaim following a series of private dinner pop-ups around the theme of wagyu. The duo later launched their first members-only restaurant, The WAGYUMAFIA Progressive Kaiseki, in Tokyo back in 2016.

6 years, seven international restaurants (three of which members only) and an iconic Tokyo sandwich shop later, the duo has landed in Sydney with their unique wagyu-focused offering in the form of MNM enabling diners a culinary experience unlike any other.
Mashi No Mashi
Prepared with an impressive 24-hour stewed Ozaki beef bone stock, NMN’s signature Wagyujiro Ramen uses up to 10 heads worth of bones for each batch. The next-level wagyu is sourced from the top 20 best farmers in Japan, which includes the famous wagyu farmer Muneharu Ozaki. 

The Sydney counterpart to the Mashi No Mashi empire will showcase a bespoke offering signature to its locale – an Izakaya menu of ultimate Japanese comfort foods. The Sydney-specific Izakaya dishes include highlights such as the Wagyu Cha Siu Bao, a beautiful piece of flavourful Ozaki wagyu beef slice, served with mushroom jam and wasabi between a soft and warm steamed bao.

After an incredible response to NMN’s signature Wagyujiro ramen world tour, the brand has established a monthly Wagyukiro night in both Hong Kong and Tokyo. With sold-out sessions each month in both cities, Wagyujiro has now found a permanent home at Mashi No Mashi Sydney at The Star, where it will no doubt see us slurping our way through winter and beyond.
